Let’s take a moment to reflect on the marvelous Ms. Lisa Loeb, who performs at the Kessler tonight, May 2.

Just look at her in this video. I would wear that outfit, right now, today. Makeup, glasses, all of it. Also, that was 19 years ago, and her face looks exactly the same.


And now, your weekend:
