Video: Bat For Lashes All Your Gold Live (Studio A, WFUV, 1 July 2013)
2013 gig highlight #7: Bat for Lashes goosebump inducing performance of Laura from The Haunted Man. Natasha Khan was note perfect for the entire show, but when she belted out her latest single Laura everyone in the room literally stopped and watched in awe. You could hear a pin drop.
She performed at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda, Melbourne on the 5 February 2013 and for a 2,800+ seated venue I could hear people gulp 10 rows behind me. Either that, or I gulped and it echoed to the back of the room.
Hands down, Natasha Khan is the best live vocalist I have ever seen. And I don’t state that lightly. I’ve seen some fantastic bloody artists over the years that I regard highly but Natasha knocked it out of the park that very night.
The best aspect was that she was totally relaxed and seemed to have enjoyed her own show just as much as we did.
My favourite gig of 2013.
