This was the first of two sold out nights at the Troubadour. The venue was packed, but Shenny and I were able to get up along the front on the left side of the stage. Eagle and Talon opened. E and T consisted of two women, one Chinese and one some sort of Middle Eastern descent, I think. The drummer looked like she was having a blast and the singer had a sweet voice, but the sound was uber crappy and I couldn't understand a word.

Sia put on what felt like two different shows - a set of chill songs and then a comedy act in between, telling jokes, dancing around, introducing the band by their "x-rated" names, and flashing jazz hands.

Sia handed out pink 3-D glasses to the crowd right before Somersault. I was handed a stack and people started clawing me so I gave a couple to the people around me than threw the rest to the people in the back. I forgot to give Shenny a pair. When you looked through the glasses at the christmas lights that were draped all over the stage and on the columns, you could see pink 3-D hearts.

Great show. Amazing voice.
