Emily Strand played at the Barking Spider last night. It was a good show despite the fact that I was almost asphyxiated by cigarette smoke. I bought her CD for a couple of fivers, found out she works for the University of Dayton and surprised her [I think] by requesting Voodoo Doll [mp3]. She played a bunch of songs, including a good cover of Huey Lewis and the News’s Power of Love. She is talented and pretty and I hope she comes back to Cleveland sometime.
