Nikki Hill (live)

Like always, Portland’s Waterfront Blues Fest featured plenty of old dinosoaurs on the main stage, Robert Plant, Eric Burdon,…but who gives a rat’s ass.  Meanwhile, at the other stages, right now was going down, Nikki Hill before the release of her first long-player, backed by a rock ‘n roll trio, packed with a truckload full of sass and rumbleseat full of charm,looking like a bombshell and exploding like a string of black cat firecrackers, belting it out like it had never been done before, doing Barbara George’s “I Know (You Don’t Love Me No More),” Little Richard’s “The Girl Can’t Help It,” and plenty of her own originals.  She reached in and ripped my heart right out of my chest.
If I was a young man, that girl wouldn’t have a chance.
