Seattle was the first stop on Brooke Fraser’s Brutal Romantic Tour. The sold-out show was also her first show in three years. Brooke and her three-member band played songs off her new album, Brutal Romantic, which was released last November, as well as alternate versions of her older songs. The style of her music has changed and she sounded great on every song – new and old. There was a lot of interaction with the audience and early in the set Brooke commented that her leather outfit was very comfortable and referred to them as “cow pajamas”. LA-based Dark Waves, fronted by Nick Long, opened.
