Anger, well-channeled: an appreciation of Storm Large

Portland singer Storm Large — longtime singer for several bands including Pink Martini, memoirist (her book and one-woman show Crazy Enough), one-time reality show star, and far more — built her reputation by being LIKE THIS in live shows: getting audiences completely into the palm of her hand with her showmanship. This is her song "I Want You to Die," a song made long and also a song made into an emotional journey. There's an unexpected development in this video, just as you think the song is ending, that shows one of Storm Large's many skills: getting angry and using that anger well.

I'd like to thank Lisa Wood, co-founder and co-runner with her husband Brian Wood of the late, great Big-Ass Sandwiches, for introducing me to this performance through an online music show she used to be able to do.
