Another video, this one from Katie Herzig at the Troubador in L.A., in nice b&w, doing a great cover of The Eurythmics’s Sweet Dreams, with a perfect dash of White Stripes thrown in.

In 1906, Evelyn Nesbit was thought to be the most beautiful woman in the world. Her sadistic husband walked up to the architect of the original Madison Square Garden, at a party in front of 100s of people, and shot him to death in a jealous rage. This story is told in several books and films, including E.L. Doctorow’s Ragtime, although none of them tell it very well. It was the most scandalous crime the country had ever known
Evelyn Nesbit died in Los Angeles in 1967, at the age of 82. This is a photograph taken of her funeral.
