In 1999 she held the record for longest album title name with When the Pawn… which contained over 400 characters and although the record has since been broken, her new album’s title is also a poem:

The Idler Wheel is wiser
than the Driver of the Screw
and Whipping Cords will serve you more
than Ropes will ever do.

Two singles from The Idler Wheel so far include “Every Single Night” and “Anything We Want”. Tickets for Fiona Apple at the Orpheum are currently on sale through Live Nation online and by phone (1-855-985-5000) for $39.50, $55, and $75. The show is all ages and there is reserved seating.

    My boyfriend and I LOVE Fiona Apple so much, but we can’t afford to buy tickets as we’re saving to go on our charity bike ride, 2k miles across the states in August to Beat Blood Cancer – fingers crossed we can win some tickets 🙂

    Her version of Elvis Costello’s “I Want You” is chilling. I think it’s on the Youtubes.

    I saw the last 15 minutes of FA when she was an opening act some time ago. It was “sit up and take notice” time, and she created a real buzz in the audience. I would love to see her entire show.

  56. Rebecca Bollwitt, Miss604 Rebecca BollwittFriday, July 13th, 2012 — 2:40pm PDT

    @Eileen, it’s you! I sent you an email a few days ago. I’ll re-send it now.


  57. EileenWednesday, July 25th, 2012 — 8:08am PDT

    Concert Review: It was unspeakably great! Fiona brought all her passion and vulnerability to the Orpheum last night. Her live performance is much different from her latest album The Idlers Wheel(which is reflective and subdued). She is bluesy, jazzy, rocking and the music has so many complex levels of sound and meaning. It took my breath away. Truly an unforgettable night, which I owe all to Rebecca. Thank You!!
