You can watch Alessi perform Hummingbird and Over The Hill. Today on the train I was thinking about my biggest gigging successes and failures. I thought back to the first time I saw Alessi play. I almost (so close!) went to Land of Talk that night, but I didn’t get a photopass. So instead I went to see Ora Cogan play at the Wilmington Arms, with Alessi as the headliner. I didn’t know who she was or her songs, but I loved her set and it completely engrossed me. I came away from the show thinking she was amazing. She still is! Listen listen listen.
