Palm Technique

Watching "Irina Palm" tonight reminded me of a very intimate Marianne Faithfull concert that I stumbled upon at Sin-e -- at their original Saint Mark's Place location -- shortly after moving to New York in 1992. The film is a bit too cute at moments and it is quite predictable, but it sort of centers around Soho glory holes, so cut it some slack. Fuck, I also saw two amazing Simon Bonney shows at Sin-e, shortly after he ended Crime and the City Solution and as his first solo album was coming out on Mute.
