Video: Jenny Mae – “Ho Bitch” (Live at Anyway 20th anniversary)

YouTube Preview Image

Back in August we premiered the first video from Columbus ex-pat and Anyway Records alum Jenny Mae. The song was called “Ho Bitch,” off the album Don’t Wait Up for Me. (The track is far more lovely than the title implies.)

As mentioned previously, Mae played one of her first sets in ages over the weekend at Anyway Records’ 20th Anniversary show at Ace of Cups, and Surly Shirley was kind enough to capture some video of her performing “Ho Bitch,” ably backed by the Woosley Band. Enjoy.

And here’s that original video again:

What’s wrong with me?
Why am I so moody?
What happened to my family?
Oh, no.
How did I get unhappy?

Picked up a vinyl copy of Jenny Mae’s There’s a Bar Around the Corner at Elizabeth’s the other day, and it reminded me to revisit Don’t Wait Up for Me, and then Bela posted this video for track 4 from that album, “Ho Bitch” — “1st Jenny Mae video, 16 years later.” Synchronicity.

It’s an incredibly simple video that pairs quite well with this devastatingly beautiful song.
