A lot of the publicity (including the email from the Vienna Teng list) said "Vienna Teng performing with Paper Raincoat" and while it was technically true, she only did 2 brief songs, barely time to warm up and another opening act actually played a full set. I'm pretty sure many in the crowd were there to see Vienna (a few folks sitting next to me actually said they were there to see her). I think if she had done 4 songs or even 1 encore, I'd not be able to write this email, but it just didn't feel right. Even if it were another band and a guest artist just happened to show up and that guest artist was that much more of a draw than the band, I think the band would have deferred more. I felt like Paper Raincoat was determined not let their show be taken over by Vienna despite everyone in the audience wanting more of Vienna. But if that was the case, why include her so prominently in the billing of the show?
So this is nothing about the quality of the music played, I know that. The opening act was an amazing musician and the audience responded well. There weren't a lot of time constraints and it was a relaxed setting. Vienna should have been given a full set. And the evening should have closed with an encore that was a song of hers and a song of Paper Raincoats. Just saying...

That's me. Just say hi next time. The Warm Strangers are a friendly group.

I'm looking forward to meeting you at Vienna's next performance.
