Hill and high water

Lauryn Hill's occasional forays into live performance never fail to disappoint. Well, unless, as with last night's Oakland Show, you'd paid ninety bucks to be there.

Eyewitness reports detail a sixty minute wait between the support and her arrival; a "largely improvised" jazz workout followed by some teetering singing and falling over - something Hill blamed on her "high heels".

Apparently, though, she looked the part:

She had that make-up on like a bag lady, like cake face with reds and blues.

Apparently, there are no plans for refunds, but the audience can at least take comfort in having a story to tell their grandkids.
