Liz Phair Brings Exile In Guyville and Her Biggest Hits To The Ohana Fest Watch Liz Phair Perform "Better Man" With Eddie Vedder
DANA POINT, CA-
“… Back in high school, a lot of my girl friends had either Exile In Guyville or Whip-Smart in their CD and/or cassette collections. Perhaps I naively thought- or was intimidated into believing- that Liz Phair’s music was more suited for those of the female persuasion. That teenage immaturity had me very late to the game when it cam to Ms. Phair’s musical genius.
Exile In Guyville is a brilliant album. It’s lo-fi production quality, and sonic dynamics from track to track, only adds to the gritty and thought provoking subject matter of Ms. Phair’s music. I was very please to hear at least 5 of the 18 songs from that album performed at The Ohana Fest, though I was hoping for more considering that Liz was celebrating the album’s 25th anniversary. But I couldn’t really complain about any of the other songs that she filled her setlist with, which was essentially a “greatest hits” of some of her most popular singles.
Liz also popped up later on in the evening to join Eddie Vedder during his headlining set to perform an cover of Pearl Jam’s “Better Man”. Yes … another Ohana Fest “once-in-a-lifetime” musical moment …”
