Ok, secret show mania has officially gotten out of hand. When I start getting text messages from people telling me that Norah Jones is doing a secret show at the Delancey, that’s when I know secret shows have totally lost their edge. That’s what happened to me last night. I got a text message from my friend who shall remain nameless (for the protection of his credibility–after all, he was at the “secret Norah Jones show”) and it said “Norah Jones is playing at the Delancey.” I simply thought this meant that for some reason Norah Jones was playing on the sound system at the Delancey, but noooooo…I found out today that the Grammy Golden Child was actually playing the downstairs space last night–and reportedly wearing a wig.
I don’t have any more details at this time as to why in the world Ms. Jones was doing a show at the D wearing a wig, but if you can explain it to me, please do so in the comments area. This is all getting a little too weird for me.
