Trixie Whitley at Schubas on November 14, 2012

Trixie Whitley's live performance sent chills down my spine.  She puts everything into her vocals.  Truly 100% in the "wearing it all on her sleeve" zone, or in tonights case, on her buff and defined Grace Slick sleeveless wife beater t-shirt sporting arms.  Her confidence was strong while singing and wavered when not.  She was upset by a fan who requested a song from her band Black Dub shouting back that this is a Trixie Whitley show and she gets annoyed that people request Black Dub and her late dad Chris Whitley's songs.  She later apologized for getting so defensive and thanked the audience for giving her a chance to sing her own songs.  It was a touchy moment, but we all moved on.

Trixie sings with such raw emotion that it is hard not to get caught up and drown right into it with her.

  1. I saw Trixie sing backup for her Dad on a few songs in the '90s on that same stage, she must've been about 10 or 11 yrs old. His song "Automatic" was made into something new with his daughter singing harmony.
