Owen Pallett

On September 11, 2010, Owen Pallett opened for Dirty Projectors at New York’s Terminal 5.  I saw Owen last month at Madison Square Garden and I remarked at the time that I’d like to see him at a more intimate venue.  I got my wish (sort of) as Terminal 5 is a lot smaller than MSG.  Like the last time I saw Owen, I liked what I heard.  He plays the violin and sings at the same time and makes it look effortless!  Pallett samples himself and then uses the samples to give his music a full band effect and it works wonderfully.  Noticeably absent was his wedding ring, so I am putting it out there Mr. Pallett that I’m single and shirtless pictures of me are available upon request.  In the rare event that he just forgot it, I wasn’t trying to start any blasphemous rumours, I was just testing to see if all those spiritual books I read have any validity by throwing ideas out there to make them happen.

Owen Pallett walked out onto the stage at Madison Square Garden where he opened for Arcade Fire on August 4, 2010 and his first words to the crowd were “I could get used to this.”  So precious!  The gay Canadian Virgo (a trifecta of sexiness, according2g), is a composer, violinist, keyboardist, and vocalist!  He mostly played violin tonight and though he performed in such a large venue, the crowd was very attentive so as to hear every word.  I can only imagine how difficult it must be to sing and play the violin at the same time, but Pallett pulled it off (pun definitely intended) as he played songs such as “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt” from his album “Heartland.”  I think seeing him in a more intimate venue will be a better experience, so keep your eyes peeled for when he comes to your town.
