LIVE REVIEW: CHRISTOPHER OWENS DEBUTS HIS SOLO ACT IN NYC
What I found most heartbreaking—almost elegiac—about the live show, was the lone vase of flowers set in the middle of the stage. For anyone who’s been to a Girls show in the past, you know that it was customary for the band to festoon the stage with flowers—flowers tied to the mics, flowers in vases, flowers scattered around the stage. But what once struck me as a sort of beautiful, embarrassment of blossoms, now seemed slightly funereal, like an offering to the one we’ve lost along the way. And a laurel for the one that still remains.
