My total bad. The singer-songwriter from Los Angeles — her most recent CD is Gun Metal Sky — made her first New York appearance in four years, and I, thinking the set involved just Lori and her piano/guitar, failed to tell you about it. Well, she came with a full kit, including a cellist and mandolin player, and she delivered her songbook with real power and feeling, and between songs, she was as relaxed and amusing as if she were playing in a living room. Promise: Next time you’ll be warned.
