Is it just my imagination or is Miss Harvey having her hair done and her
photo shoots EXACTLY like Karen O of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs...No fucking shame..
Work on your slim pickin's talent girl..not on your look.

OK, yeah, PJ was amazing Friday night, but if you are going to post to the site about it, why not try to make it a full concert review by writing a bit? Just showing her picture and one line isn't going to speak to people who don't know how rocking she really is. (Plus, you get comments like the one from rumbabun up there, who compares PJ to Karen O., when PJ's been around much longer than the fucking yeah yeah yeahs - try 10 years, rumbabun. PJ has more talent in her little toe than all of the YYY's put together, but I digress.)

Check out this review of Patti Smith I wrote a few months back:  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/08/295017.shtml

Now, I'm not saying this was a great article, but it's good to take the time to do yr own original reporting and writing for the site - PDX IMC is sorely lacking in local, original reporting, and even if it's just a concert review I think it's great that people make the effort. (And BTW, I wouldn't exactly call PJ "Big Boned".)

THIS WASN'T MEANT TO BE A REVIEW, JUST A THANK YOU. PEACE..............

FOUNTAIN = pjharvey

Stand
Under
Fountain
Cool skin
Wash clean
Wash him
From me

Along comes wind
A big bone-shaker
Blows off my clothes
Completely naked
What to do
When everything
Has left you?

Out of the blue
It is he
A vision to me
Bearing leaves
Petals green
Covers me
In all my shame

Hand in hand
He's my big man
Stays with me
Some forty days
No words
Then goes away
I cry
Again
