Concert Pirates: My Brightest Diamond @ Troubadour

It’s no secret that I have an enormous crush on Shara Worden, the heart and soul behind the hauntingly beautiful songs of My Brightest Diamond. At first I thought that it was just an aural thing, a result of her gorgeous melodies and vocal power. But as she played through her set at her recent Troubadour show, the partially handicapped Shara, a result of a “rock jump” at the band’s previous Las Vegas gig, made it impossible to not fall in love with her. Her adorability (?) and comedic banter made me wish that she wasn’t actually happily married and that some angel of a woman actually existed for me. But besides the heart skipping from time to time, My Brightest Diamond introduced three new songs with a hand full of chosen covers that hinted at something of a progtastic new album of hard rock meets folk flavored goodness. We can’t wait.

Hi 'the_KING',

On behalf of 4AD, we would kindly ask you not to post copies of - or
individual tracks from - "Dark Was The Night", the multi-artist charity
album benefiting the Red Hot Organization (release dates February 17th
US and 16th UK) ... .. aside, of course, from "Knotty Pine" by David
Byrne and Dirty Projectors, which is the official preview / promo track
and which fans and bloggers are very welcome to host / post / share etc.

A series of one-day-only streams are also available on the official,
"Dark Was The Night" MySpace page at ... .. these are being streamed
on a one-track-per-day basis and fans and bloggers are again welcome to
link to them on the actual day of each preview stream (only) ... ..
although Red Hot and 4AD have asked that people don't then rip these
tracks and continue to host them on their blogs or post them onto
file-sharing sites ... .. all proceeds / royalties are going to AIDS and
HIV projects and research and, understandably, everyone involved in this
project is seeking to maximize legitimate sales (and pre-release
postings can potentially have a negative impact on that goal).

We do appreciate that you are fans of / are promoting the many artists
who have generously donated their time and their songs to this project -
and that you are helping to promote this good cause - but Red Hot, 4AD
and all of the artists concerned would greatly appreciate your
co-operation in removing your links to the files in question.

For info on Red Hot's 20 years of charitable work and to pre-order a
copy of "Dark Was The Night", check-out .

Thanks Again,

I can´t hear about diamond word even if you mean anything else. But the true is that i would like to have bracelet, rings and necklace with diamond everywhere. This gemstone shouldn´t be sold too expensive. that is why i prefer to buy viagra for my husband at a good price and the result is wonderful.
