Martha Wainwright At The Highline Ballroom

Martha Wainwright knocked the ball out of the park with her performance Wednesday night at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. It was especially cool to see her mother, Kate McGarrigle, and her brother, Rufus, join her for a few songs. I really enjoy both of Martha's CDs, but after seeing Martha perform live, her songs take on a whole new meaning for me.

Here's what Martha played:

“I Wish I Were”
“Bleeding All Over You”
“Comin’ Tonight”
“Jesus and Mary”
“Hearts Club Band”
“When The Day Is Short”
“So Many Friends”
“Far Away”
“This Life”
“Tower Song”
“You Cheated Me”
“Dis Quand Reviendras Tu”

Encore 1
“Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole”
“See Emily Play”
“Don’t Forget” (with Rufus Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle)

Encore 2
“Stormy Weather (Keeps Rainin’ All The Time)”
