Lido Pimienta feat. Tanya Tagaq - La Capacidad

Full review to follow. This night made me simultaneously sad that I had missed the first three instalments of this Lido Pimienta-curated series and rather glad I made it out for this one. Celebrating, as always, the spirit of the struggle, this show focused on female empowerment, represented onstage by a powerful lineup that included appearances from Isla Craig, New Chance's Victoria Cheong and Doomsquad's Jaca Lynie. But the real treat was having Tanya Tagaq, the night's special guest, join Pimienta onstage, adding layers of vocal interplay that stretched the songs' structures into frameworks for extended improvised give-and-take. A unique and memorable night.

And a special shoutout here to LP collaborator Blake Macfarlane, who missed this show at the outset of a medical leave — here's to a full recovery and a return to action.
