SXSW 2010 Quick Hits, Day 3: Sass Jordan

After missing her the previous day, I caught up with Sass Jordan for a 5:00 set at the Canadian Blast party at Paradise on 6th Street. This was a cool little shindig with free enchiladas served up with rice and beans, and $3 drafts of Magic Hat. Jordan only had two acoustic guitarists with her as opposed to a whole band, but the rock goddess who hit it big in the early ’90s did not disappoint.

Jordan sang and moved as if she had a full band behind her, making the hard rocking “High Road Easy” a definite treat. “What I Need” from Jordan’s new album rocked as well, followed by breakthrough hit “Make You a Believer,” which rocked into a brief but tasty jam on Stephen Stills’ “Love the One You’re With” before segueing back into “Believer.” It was the type of cool musical curve ball move you might expect from Jordan and one can only hope she’s back out on tour with a full band soon.
