Sid 'n Susie (Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs) at City Winery 9/11/09

Sid 'n Susie (Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs) played City Winery on 9/11/09.

This was the second show of their tour supporting their latest album Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs, Under the Covers Vol. 2 (Check out Michael Giltz's review in the Huffington Post).

They had a few slip ups, forgetting lyrics and vocal parts, but they laughed it off and played on through. They showed us their fake book on which they relied heavily.

Technical problems didn't help; Matthew's guitar broke and was poorly repaired. He played a new, inexpensive guitar he had just bought. Susanna's guitar was left in a cab that day. They were accompanied by Matthew's friend and bandmate Paul Chastain. HE had his guitar and leant it to Susanna for a small Bangles medley late in the show.

Higher resolution photos in my Flickr photoset.

I shot this show for Venuszine. Their review of the show, by Eleanor Whitney, is here. This certainly describes my experience of the show.

I deleted a semi-anonymous panning of the show on my Flickr photostream. Had they published their name or had anything public in their photostream I would have left it visible.

They'll be back at City Winery for two shows in November. May have to go back to hear them with all their proper gear.

Show # 40
