Estorreson (yourhere.mtv.com) posted this review:
I found the perfect date night. Too bad it was a one-time-only show in my area — at least for a while. Last night Welsh import Duffy sang jazzy love songs to the sold-out El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.

If you are looking for some crowd surfing, an occasional serious injury, screaming rock stars and a lot of jumping around, a Duffy show is not for you. But if a chilled-out crowd, some music played right on point and a good love songs are your thing, get your tickets now.

I can’t put a finger on exactly the type of crowd that was at the show, because frankly, it was a little bit of everything: people in suits coming straight from work, young pop-loving girls (after all, her music has been featured on “The Hills”), couples in their 40s and even an L.A. hipster or two.

And she isn’t just good date music, she may help cure the broken heart as well. Throughout her show, Duffy made clear that most of her songs were written because she was mad at somebody, not blissfully in love. “I won’t bore you with my issues” she said. “I have therapy for that.” Pretty up-front for a sold-out crowd, I think.

There's a youtube video of some guy interviewing the crowd after the el-rey gig. Towards the end a fat guy with a beard holds up the setlist. I'd type it out for you but I can't seem to get any further than the blonde in the low cut black dress.

Hi Danyelle

You've put up Warwick Avenue twice, so no Stepping Stone.

Thanks for all the vids though!
