Johnette Napolitano at Soiled Dove, 11/27/13

JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO at THE SOILED DOVE | 11/27/13 After opening with "The Real Thing," a Concrete Blonde limited edition, single, Johnette Napolitano looked down at a woman sitting in front of her next to the stage and asked if she was okay. The singer, playing her last show of the year, wondered because the gal was knitting. "You're knitting," Napolitano said. "That rules! I have it made when people are fucking knitting at my shows. That's the fucking coolest thing. Well, I hope you're knitting me a chastity belt or something."
