See the site for photos of Jesca's show!



Second act Jesca Hoop, donning a hot pink top with bell-shaped sleeves draped over her acoustic guitar, possessed a pure and ethereal voice and also made an unlikely pairing with the Eels. Hoop sang a "batch of precocious tunes" for us (her words) in a light, airy soprano that impressively did not lose its airiness even when visiting the lower registers. Her style is very Regina Spektor-like at times, switching octaves and then continuing on in a smooth legato. While the songs on her album Under My Dress are backed by a full band, Hoop's performance was solo, only accompanied by her guitar and would fit perfectly on a bill with Sarah McLachlan and co.
