That's Just Bonnie Raitt Creepin' Up On You.

At the Sony Center in Toronto tonight, Bonnie got us all inspired and excited and what came around went around.
She came on with a stomping, sinuous & sexy version of INXS' Need You Tonight. Turns out it was true. You know how she do.

Her grace and gratitude for a loving audience shone in prisms all night. Heavy on the blue scale.

After a mid-set standing ovation for Angel From Montgomery and a surprise version of I Feel The Same, she finished us off with an extended encore of I Can't Make You Love Me, Love Creepin' Up On You and Sweet And Shiny Eyes.

 And openers The California Honeydrops displayed Olympic-level instrumental skills and deep vocal integrity in every song, including Wilson Pickett's Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You and an epic Drowned In My Own Tears.
