Ingrid Michaelson checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@ingridmichaelson) on Friday (March 13), talking about her participation in a R.E.M. tribute show in New York City. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I had the good fortune to be one of 20 artists asked to be part of the R.E.M. tribute show at Carnegie Hall two nights ago. I did “Nightswimming” armed with only a looping pedal and my friend Chris on upright bass. I love that song. It seasoned my summer of ‘93. I listened to ‘Automatic for the People’ on constant rotation that summer. So when I was asked which song I wanted to do, I knew immediately.
R.E.M. was there, in the audience. I have never been so nervous in all of my life. I was trembling a good 20 minutes after I walked off stage.
