And when I say “Little Earthquakes,” I pay homage to the debut album of one Tori Amos, born August 22, 1963, one of the most unique female singers and songwriters of her age. So brace yourself for the 9.0 on the Richter scale (metaphorically speaking, of course) —

Now hopefully you happen to be residing in any of these states with close proximity to the venue, because if not you’d be missing a hell of a show.

When you merge that sharp lyrical edge of alternative metal with a soft ’70s style, you know you’ve got some Tori Amos on the brain. She’s that sublime. You like Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell? Genetically put the two of them together, and the name spells T-O-R-I…. A-M-O-S.

I don’t think I can spell it out any better than that. Oh, by the way — hold onto your furniture while the “little earthquakes” hit.
