Vienna Teng (å²é€¸æ¬£) played this evening at the TripleDoor in Seattle. When I first heard about it, I tried to get tickets, but all the normal seats were sold out (this was tuesday – basically right after we got back from visiting Oregon for Labor Day weekend). I hopped down there this evening a 5:30 to get a “standing room” ticket, walked away knowing I’d at least get the see the show. At 15 past the opening of the show, the TripleDoor opens any non-claimed seats to the standing room folks and I really lucked out.
I managed to get a seat right at the stage, slightly to the left. I took a couple of pics with the iPhone, but mostly I was pretty engaged just listening. The picture below is from the middle of her set where she was singing a song in mandarin (I believe it was the Green Island Serenade) a cappella. Most of the reset of the show she was accompanied by Dina Macabee (violinist), Marika Hughes (chellist), and Alex Wong (percussion and all the really “odd” instruments).
It was a great show, and I’m really glad I managed to get into it, let alone slip into that great seat.
