A Dyke About Town: Buffy Sainte-Marie rocks Triple Door

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN A&E Writer

Reality joined Mercy for the sold-out concert by Buffy Sainte-Marie at the Triple Door, September 10. He said 'There are a lot of old folkies in the audience.' Mercy added, 'Like us.'

Sainte-Marie has 18 albums out. Her newest one is Running for the Drum. The evening of folk and original songs was satisfying. Buffy has a powerful voice.

She opened with 'Piney Wood Hills. Following nicely were 'Cho Cho Fire,' 'Cripple Creek,' 'I'm Gonna Be A Country Girl Again,' 'Generation,' 'Mister Can't You See,' 'Up Where We Belong,' 'Universal Soldier,' 'Not the Lovin' Kind,' 'Little Wheel Spin and Spin,' 'Until It's Time for You To Go,' 'Blue Sunday,' ' Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,' and 'Starwalker.'

Reality noted, 'At 72, she has more energy than most 20-year-olds.' Buffy earned a standing ovation.

PAT METHENY UNITY BAND
Reality joined Mercy for the Pat Metheny Unity Band at Jazz Alley, September 13. The performance was mellow jazz.

Metheny's guitar was phenomenal. Sax by Chris Potter was delicious. Ben Williams' bass was funky. Drums by Antonio Sanchez were rhythmic. Reality said, 'Metheny is one of the great musicians. The group clearly listens to each other.'

They opened with 'The Sound of Water,' featuring guitar. 'Come and See' had solos by Potter, Williams, and Metheny. 'Roof Dogs' was ornamented by Pat, Chris, and Antonio.

'New Year' featured guitar and sax. 'This Belongs to You' featured Pat, Chris, and Antonio. Solos by guitar and sax ornamented 'Interval Waltz.' The band received a standing ovation.

STORM VS. SUN
Mercy missed the last game, but Cuteness reported: The Seattle Storm made a valiant effort to win the game against the Connecticut Sun, playing on their home turf September 16. Coming off of a three-loss road trip, the Key Arena crowd had high hopes. Alas, it was not to be - Connecticut won by two in the last 14 seconds of the game for a final score of 60-58.

The Storm pulled ahead in the last few minutes of the game, with a nice shot by guard Katie Smith for a 58-54 lead. Shekinna Stricklen was the game's high scorer with 12 points. The crowd cheered wildly, hoping for a miracle finish. The seconds ticked away, one missed opportunity here, another stumble there - how can two minutes seem like such an eternity? The lead suddenly slipped away.

Cuteness likes to say, 'Free throws count - they can make or break the game.' Such was the case when the Sun made the last two free throws (on a foul by Camille Little) to win. Stricklen gets a high-five for her attempt at a very long-shot three-pointer at the buzzer. She missed, but kudos to her for heaving the ball down the court. There was a collective sigh from the fans.

Once again, the Storm played without the injured Sue Bird (left hip flexor) and Lauren Jackson (right hamstring). Expectations are that both players will return to the lineup soon. Despite being headed for their first losing season since 2002, the team has clinched a spot in the Western Conference playoffs.

COUNT BASIE ORCHESTRA
Mercy is looking forward to seeing the Count Basie orchestra at Jazz Alley, where they will appear September 30 and October 1. Founded by Count Basie, who died in 1984, today the orchestra is directed by Dennis Mackrel and features vocalist Carmen Bradford. Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald are among the past legends who have performed with Basie. The orchestra has won 17 Grammies.
