Sooo I went to see Vanessa Carlton last night at the ivar theater. Excellent venue, seats about 200. Sat in the third row. Graham Colton opened, he was a good choice for an opener as he is a guitar player and this contrasts well with Vanessa's piano. His performance was very enthusiastic and his dialog with the audience was amusing. Vanessa's performance was excellent. Her voice rings as true in a live setting. The performance was basically her on piano and a violinist. It was very nice to be able to hear the her lament about the ways in which these songs were created. I am not sure why she played such a small venue, but it was a very intimate performance. I would recommend catching her live if you have the chance.
