Brandi Carlile Soars In Performing Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ In Los Angeles

This is heady stuff. My favorite saluted and interpreted by yet another favorite.

However, as everyone knows, the higher the risk, often times the greater the rewards can be. And Carlile proved that tonight, delivering a performance for the ages that will be remembered as much in her career as a landmark moment as it will be looked upon as a tribute to Mitchell’s greatness.

“Are we loose?”

October 2, 1975.  

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band are scheduled for the Uptown Theatre in Milwaukee but a bomb scare delays the deed. The Boss retires to The Pfister bar to wait out the bomb sniffers. He settles in, performs a couple songs for the crowd and upon getting the “all clear” for the Uptown, proclaims “I’m a little loose” and catches a ride to the theatre atop a record promoter’s car. The set at the Uptown is epic. And, if you’ve caught Springsteen in Milwaukee since, you’ve probably heard him ask, “Are we loose?” … a hat-tip to that night when he was too loose to fake.
