It took forever for Cat Power to come on.  They were scheduled to come on at 12 but I don’t think they came on until close to 2pm.  I really like Cat Power but I didn’t really think the music was a good fit for a beach concert or to open for Weezer.

After a few drinks and a nice (free) BBQ lunch it’s finally time for Cat Power to kick off proceedings – all the other bands on the cruise play numerous sets over the various days but this is the only of their shows, they must have been able to get Chan to agree to play in these gorgeous surrounds, but she obviously drew the line at being stuck on the boat for four days with this drunken rabble.

They kick off with a haunting take on The Greatest, the song building and building into a different beast altogether by song’s end. Chan is looking pixie-ish with her short haircut and the band behind her are completely different to last time I enjoyed her company (in a casino in Las Vegas for the Matador At 21 bash), and they move onto the skittish Cherokee without further ado. By the track’s end, however, the notoriously troublesome singer is complaining about the foldback and monitors – she hasn’t yet addressed the crowd even slightly – but soon gets things to her happiness and moves onto the restrained Xs4all, and she’s soon happily tossing water bottles into the sun-bathes crowd (still maintaining silence in terms of speaking to her fans, assuming they’re here). Next up is the ludicrously disturbing Angelitos Negros, which starts in Spanish before reverting to English so we can cop the full emotional brunt of the heinous narrative – this is so far pretty angsty for both the surrounds and the occasion, and you can feel people who didn’t know what to expect almost exploding with confusion. I’m a borderline fan – own numerous records and have been looking forward to this set – but even I’m kinda conflicted about the appropriateness of what we’re witnessing, but then Chan introduces the next song as “being written by Rowland S Howard, Lou Reed and Michael Hutchence” and my ears prick up, partially from parochial pride (two-thirds Aussie!) and partly from curiosity because I’ve never heard of such a composition; turns out to be a version of Velvet Underground’s Oh! Sweet Nuthin’ interspersed with the chorus of Shivers, with snippets of Never Tear Us Apart thrown in for good measure (sorry Andrew Farriss, no name-check for you). Pretty damn cool (albeit weird) as it turns out. Next is a soaring version of the beautiful Metal Heart – which is cut a few verses short for some reason – and then a cool run-through of The Moon, before we hit a couple of cool covers: a stripped-back and unremittingly lovely take on ‘50s standard Sea Of Love (seemingly based on The Honeydrippers well-known rendition) leads into a deep and brooding I Wanna Be Your Dog (The Stooges fool!). The set finished with polished takes on I Don’t Blame You and Ruin, and while the band – and Chan M in particular – warm to the occasion over the duration, you can’t help but feel that a possible list of acts who would have been more appropriate for this tranquil setting and party atmosphere would be pretty freaking long (even off the top of my head I can think of about 250). First world problems in the second/third world, tough times indeed…



----------------------------------

I'm totally at loss by the mention of a song called ''Xs4all''. I see on google that this is an abbreviation for ''Access For All'', but I cant find any reference to this being a cover of any kind. I can only assume the reviewer really meant ''Silent Machine"... which sort of makes sense... but not really. In any case, ''Silent Machine'' was typically the 3rd song on the setlist during the Sun Tour. So I will list it in the setlist above until, I hear something else about this. 

Also, what a cool setlist! "The Moon", "I Wanna Be Your Dog", both first time for the Sun Touring Band.

"Of course there was music. Cat Power was set to open for Weezer, and she did...only two hours late. A few people were pissing and moaning about it, but our friend Kim mentioned that Cat is notorious for being late. We were also on "island time" and whatnot, so we all just plopped down in the sand and enjoyed the warm air. 


When Cat Power finally made her appearance, it was well worth the wait. Her voice is so serene and melodic, a perfect choice for a beach concert. Even when she was talking, I just loved her voice. I wanted her to read random things to me, or narrate my life. That'd be awesome." http://chubbylumpkin.blogspot.fr/

Cat Power and her band arrived just in time to bring some fresh energy and catch the next ferry out to the most bizarre private island with stands selling $20 sunscreen and a VIP bar tended by Bahama local Sean who quickly became everyone’s favorite.

Unwavered by some technical difficulties, Chan Marshall hit her stride performing her dreamy melodies with the babeliest of babes backing her up


Weezer then played each band member’s own favorite songs and an especially fitting, near surreal rendition of Island In The Sun.


Huge beach balls were tossed out into the crowed by the band’s children. Chan herself found volleying balls into the crowd.
