Here’s another video from the Pool Deck show Butterfly Boucher did on Ships and Dip V. Totally rocking song called “Gun For A Tongue” from her new album scaryfragile. (At least I think the title is all run together like that. It kind of looks that way on the album cover.)
Right at the end of this song you’ll see this flurry of activity as the techs try and get her off the stage because there was some fairly scary looking lightning in the area. Butterfly did a great job of scooting everyone off to safer places. She later said she felt kind of bad about mentioning people could go buy her album, but really, if you’re a musician, you got to sell your record. (And I’d already bought it the first moment I set eyes on it on the ship.)
Every year after the cruise, Sixthman, the cruise organizer, asks who we want to see on the cruise. Natasha and I kept asking for Butterfly Boucher. We saw Butterfly open for BnL once, totally acoustic, and just thought she was amazing! We were so happy to get to hear her again live on the cruise, and also to be able to pick up her new CD, Scary Fragile (look for it on Amazon soon — it was the CD release party on the ship).
Here’s some video of Butterfly I dropped on YouTube. If anybody videod her performances with Sarah McLachlan on the cruise (they weren’t supposed to, but I saw a lot of it going on), do check it out. The audience SHOT out of their seats on the last note of the final song they did and gave a huge standing ovation! It was really, really beautiful.
This song isn’t on either of Butterfly’s albums, btw, but still a good one. I have more video of her coming in the future.
