Better Than...Fiona's tears
It's been a tough few months for Fiona Apple. At the end of August, the singer-songwriter stormed off stage at a fashion show in Tokyo after asking the audience on several occasions to pipe down (they didn't). On Thursday, she kicked a crowd member out of Portland's Newmark Theatre for shouting out, "Get healthy, we want to see you in 10 years!" Apple later left the stage in tears.
At Walt Disney Concert Hall last night she was joined by guitarist and composer Blake Mills, as well as
a cellist an upright bassist and a drummer. Things went better for her, and the behavior of the crowd had much to do with that.
