Kate Lee Short at The Palms

Wonder Valley sound artist Kate Lee Short stole the stage at last night's Open Mic at The Palms.

There had been a stellar line up of musicians coming from as far away as Yucca Valley. Of particular note was 2/3 of the punk rock group The Sticky Dolls. They sang great original pieces and also covered X and Iggy Pop.

But Kate, the last act of the night, stole the stage with her haunting and mesmerizing accordion performance. The accompanying light show and background sound were a perfect backdrop to Short's breathy performance.

The work was so good that Harmonica Bob stood and doffed his hat to her.

And please forgive me. I can't write about music. She deserves better. Her act was really good.
