REVIEW: Liz Phair LIVE at The Holland 12/5/23 Exile In Guyville at 30 (VIDEO)

Welcome back, friends. Wanted to do a quick recap/review of last night's Liz Phair show at Holland Performing Arts in Omaha. Liz's current tour is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of her debut album, Exile In Guyville. She is performing the entire album front to back for the first time ever (pretty sure that's true, don't quote me), as well as doing a "greatest hits" encore.

Liz was in amazing form at this show. I've seen her three other times over the last 30 years - including on her very first tour - and this was definitely the best show of hers I've seen. Seeing Liz fully embrace the album that made us all love her was exciting. It has always seemed to me that Liz was trying to run away from Exile, and to prove (as if she needed to) that she was more than just the one, decade defining album.

Liz was feeling the love from the crowd and seemed to be having a great time on stage. That's definitely different than 30 years ago.

Opening the show was folky Virginia singer/songwriter Kate Bollinger. She was good, but a little bit too mellow for me on this particular night.
