Cat Power. Unfortunately, she could barely be heard on the edge of the lawn in front of the stage. If you were standing front and centre it might have been a great performance, not so much on the periphery.

Review
http://www.3news.co.nz/Laneway-Festival-review/tabid/418/articleID/329956/Default.aspx

If Haim provided the festival's symbols of youth, optimism and hope, then Cat Power - who had a nervous breakdown in 2006 and is notorious for her stage fright and erratic performances - was their opposite, a seasoned and frail songstress battling her own demons. Playing the aptly named Cactus Cat stage, complete with Andrey Melnichenko's $400 million super yacht docked in the harbour behind, Marshall's set was self-conscious, fragile and faulted. "My bad, my bad, it's my fault," she said at one stage when she made a mistake and started a song over. Barely looking at the audience, Marshall nervously fought with sound issues her entire set and interacted with her audio technician more than the crowd. The audience was forgiving though, with one member of the audience yelling "Come live here. We've got acres and hectares [and] native bush. We'll make pianos for you." Despite the flaws Marshall's performance was captivating, and in the hipster world of Laneway where it seemed that image and fashion is everything, her honest vulnerability was a refreshing breath of air. For anyone who was lucky enough to end their night with her performance it was a real pleasure indeed.

Critics aren't that inspired. I've only been here for something like 8 months and it already feels like I've read that kind of review intro a hundred times...

Seriously guys, for having been following CP for many years, you must be very disillusioned or at least very tired of reading that ?

It makes me think of how any new female songwriter who plays acoustic songs gets compared to Chan (Nicolaoua, you broached that issue elsewhere on the forum), same kind of cliché  Rolling Eyes !

Wink  Honestly, i'm tired of the "erratic performances" cliché. It was true until 2006, but since then and till last year, Chan delivered very professional performances.

Setlist updated from this

Review
http://13thfloor.co.nz/reviews/concert-reviews/laneway-festival-silo-park-january-27-2014/

I had seen Cat Power only once before and it was at an all-day outdoor festival in Austin, Texas about ten years ago. It didn’t go well, as she had a bit of a meltdown on stage. She’s a fragile and un-confident performer in the best of times, and as it turned out, this was not one of them.

There was a big crowd waiting for her around the tiny stage, which held a small upright piano and a guitar. Cat Power came on, smiling and waving and strapped on her guitar to play the first song, Old Detroit. But the volume was low, there was feedback and Chan apparently couldn’t hear herself or her guitar. She got through the first few songs, but barely…gesturing to the sound man at the side of the stage during and in-between songs. The crowd held its collective breath. Perhaps they had seen the recent Youtube clip of Cat Power berating an unfortunate soundman at a club in the States and hoped history would not repeat itself.

After Hate, from The Greatest, she moved to the piano, where things didn’t fare any better.  She started with The Greatest, but stopped, mid-song because of a squeal from the mic. Forcing a smile, she restarted the song and then played a version of Marvin Gaye’s early hit, Can I Get A Witness. The sound was still very low, but she persevered, muttering something about a sound check. After I Don’t Blame You, she said to the crowd, “It is my privilege and honour to be here, thank you”. The set continued, with the crowd keeping relatively quiet in lieu of the lack of volume. After Make Me Feel So Bad she got up from the piano, had a chat with the sound man and returned to her guitar. Unfortunately, she was forced to restart Good Woman, due to continued monitoring problems. Finally, the sound issues seemed to be resolved as she played The Moon and Metal Heart.  But then, the set was over. It was only 10:30; Cat Power had been on less than an hour and, according to the schedule was supposed to play until 11:15.

But, as Chan leaned into the mic to say, “Thank you”, she recoiled sharply, as if receiving an electric shock. She wouldn’t be returning. Despite all the tension and drama, she sounded beautiful. The song selection was surprising and powerful. It’s a shame she never felt comfortable on stage. So, a rather downbeat end to what was, overall, an excellent day of live music.

Review

I think Cat Power will be talked about for a while after this one too, and not necessarily for reasons I’m all that fond of. As listeners, we’ve reaped the benefits of Chan Marshall’s very troubled life, transposing the products and premonitions of ravaging alcohol abuse and psychotic episodes onto our bad days at work and unreciprocated crushes. For all of its moments of beauty, this was one of her dreaded performances of yore where she could barely hold it together, and it’s immensely upsetting to think of someone fighting to overcome this for years, even managing to make fun of themselves, and not being able to beat it. I don’t want to condemn it, because Cat Power “sucking tonight” is more than most of us will accomplish on a stage ourselves, but I’m also uneasy about any “dam…so emotional…I was ther…” bandwagoneering. That’s all.

I really want to hear this ''Old Detroit" to be sure of what song this is. I think she played it at Cleveland, and it was on the setlists (all of which were basically the same and werent meant to be followed exactly) for the last tour. I wonder if she has it more arranged now. In any case, this is the first show I see where someone has reported that this song was played (besides maybe cleveland).

Review

Cat Power - Cactus Cat Stage - 9.30pm

In stark contrast to the gaudy super yachts lined up behind it, the Cactus Cat stage is adorned with just a piano and a guitar when a beaming Chan Marshall ambles into the spotlight of her solo set to rapturous applause from the capacity crowd. The next 50 odd minutes are both trial and triumph for the enigmatic Marshall as persistent sound issues derail songs and visibly knock her confidence.

Thankfully, whenever she might stumble, the crowd were on hand to pick her back up and they are rewarded for their efforts with a selection of stunningly honest and stark versions of some of her best work. Fragile versions of ‘Great Expectations’, ‘I Don't Blame You’ and ‘The Greatest’ were among the highlights as Marshall exposed the vulnerable core at both the heart of her song writing and her confidence.

"Sorry - are you mad at me?" she quips at one point after having to restart another song. There's no annoyance from the crowd though, just a cheer of appreciation and a wave of support that carries Marshall through to the end of one of the day’s more endearing shows.
