Esparanza Spalding at the Crystal Ballroom . Though we wished we were SITTING during the show, we were pretty distracted by the amazing music! She is a phenomenal singer and bass player with a great stage presense. She played all the songs from her newest album, Radio Music Society, none of which I had heard before, so that was fun to be treated to a bunch of new stuff. She's from Portland, so it was fun to see her here in Portand. She even ended with a song about The City of Roses. Her cover of Michael Jackson's "I Can't Help it" was probably my favorite song.
