I’ve seen PJ Harvey play twice, once in Boston and once in Washington D.C. The single best live music experience I’ve had was her performance of "50-Foot Queenie" in Boston, 1996. Any chance I might ever have to see her perform, I will immediately jump on it.
Videos and recordings don’t quite capture the energy she brings, although videos on YouTube of a show she did in Chicago in 1993 give you at least a glimmer. Note the crowd reaction in the clip above of "Sheela-na-gig" and in the video of "50-Foot Queenie." She’s a god.
