For those of us who made it out to the Ingrid Michaelson show last night — it was worth it! It was a full house at the 930 Listening Room in Germantown — and Ingrid played and chatted for more than two hours.
Just the basics — an acoustic guitar, keyboard and backup singer. She saved her hit, “The Way I Am,” for the end, followed by an encore of covers, including “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Among her between-song banters, she observed that Kentucky drivers do not know how to drive in snow. That’s so true, unfortunately. (I’m from Ohio, I have to agree with her.) Ingrid also provided details and inspirations for each song she performed. It was interesting, engaging and very entertaining.
My only complaint: What’s up with this 930 venue? No bar? I know it’s attached to a church and all, but bummer.
