Thanks AC for all the fabulous photos :).

Paris!!!! Anna let the city shake with her magnificent performance! She was everything: heavy metal and head banging, dreamy and thoughtful, sensual, sexy and sexual, playful, seducing and challenging and daring and very queer.
And she was closer than ever: the catwalk was the best idea she could ever have- Anna being inches away from us, teasing us, bumping some fans' heads with hers, ruffling some guys' hair. Then in the next moment she would stomp on the walk, proud like a king, demanding and giving and shred her guitar.  To quote some other fan: „She had her fans in the palm of her hand.“
The new songs are almost all wild and rock and like she said in an interview "more visceral, animalistic and less cerebral".  If you love "Love of my Life", then you will love these songs, too; the lyrics are very direct, personal, emotional , passionate and intimate. They are Anna's queer manifesto transferred into music: Finally she breaks all conventional chains, frees herself from the gender boundaries of society and lives her life the way she wants it to be, as the person she wants to be. "I'll be your boy, you'll be my girl/I'll be your girl, you'll be my boy". On stage she acts out this passion by throwing herself down on the catwalk, squirming and writhing, beating her good old telecaster, letting it shriek.

How this shy and private person, who still doesn't say any more than 'thank you' and 'goodbye', is able to turn her inside out, share her deepest emotions with us and let us be so close with her is one of the most fascinating experiences I've ever had. I have nothing but deepest respect and love for her, and there's no doubt that 'Hunter' will be a fantastic album. Anna Calvi remains one of the most outstanding artists ever. Period.
