Throughout the show, guitarist Mr. Head also joined Ellis to shake the foundation of the Wiltern, most notably on "Victory" from 1992s Dry and Demonstration, while pint-sized Harvey danced around in her turquoise stilettos.
The shows constant mood swings tied with the elegant "To Bring You My Love," "Evol," "Is This Desire?" and selections from her latest release Uh Huh Her, indicated that while Harveys lyrics may be angry at times, it was time to let go and indulge in the exciting music.
On a sad note, Oct. 25 also marked the death of broadcast legend John Peel, whose live recording sessions helped put Harvey on the musical map. She dedicated The Falls "Janet v. James" to his memory.
During the second encore, the power unexpectedly cut out for a few moments, but Harvey and Co. kept going, changing the mood yet again and replacing lyrics with a cheerful "no power cuts" during the brooding tune "The Darker Days of Me & Him." While the Brit made little social interaction during her performance, only pausing briefly to say "Thank you," Harveys delivery did all the speaking for her, resulting in one gratified audience.
