A friend of mine went to school in Hong Kong with someone named Athens FitzCheung (correct me on this, Karen?). This name is awesome. It only recently struck me that Vienna Teng has a surprisingly similar name.
More to the point, Austin and I saw her live tonight, at the etown taping at the Boulder Theater. She is more amazing than anticipated: pretty, socially conscious, really smart, and most of all astoundingly talented. With versatility like you’ve not seen in a long time. She went from classically-informed current singer/songwriter to “didn’t Alan Lomax record this?” in a moment.
Bottom line: check her out.
