Whatever anyone says, we believe Chrissie. But we're getting a little ahead of ourselves.
Two nights ago (Nov. 7)--which just happened to be Joni Mitchell's 52nd birthday-- Mitchell
performed at the small, 150 seat nightclub in New York City called Fez. The show was unannounced, save a single mention of it on Rita Houston's City Folk program on WFUV-FM that morning. That's all it took to pack Fez-and not only with civilians, but with a spectacular bevy of divas: an allegedly drunk Chrissie
Hynde, who had come straight from her Symphony Space live broadcast; Carly Simon, impeccably
dressed and coifed; Katell Keineg, that New Age alternative Irish singer, who was first in
line for tickets; with Natalie Merchant bringing up the rear. Also in attendance was Victoria
Williams, who is also going to play her own unannounced show at the Fez on Sunday (Nov. 12).
