Cat Power's Slow-Burning Bonnaroo Set Attracts Vedder, Olsens

By |

While Mastodon bashed away across the field, as the sun began to set Cat Power's Chan Marshall — backed by a crew of jazzbos — turned out a gorgeous set of slow-burning tunes from The Greatest and her latest covers record, Jukebox. Highlights included her rendition of the Miracles' "Tracks of My Tears" and the meditative ballad "The Greatest." Prowling across the stage with confidence, at times crooning into her palm as if she were holding a mirror, Marshall demonstrated how far her live show has come in recent years. And believe it or not, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and the Olsen Twins were both spotted checking out the set from backstage.
