Better Than: Listening to "Stairway to Heaven" again.
At first it made no sense that a medley of Led Zeppelin's greatest hits would be playing at the Fillmore Miami Beach as the seated crowd waited for Tori Amos to take the stage. If you would pick Kate Bush as number one on Tori Amos' list of musical heroes, you'd probably put Robert Plant and Jimmy Page somewhere around Tupac and Weird Al. But even a casual listen to both acts' lyrics reveals a shared love for the type of paperback fantasy novels where they always spell little, magical winged creatures as f-a-e-r-i-e-s.

The opening act was Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, an English husband and wife who strum acoustic guitars and sing so closely into the same microphone that it seemed they might kiss at any moment.
But judging from the audience's audible impatience during their set, it appeared the night's attendees might not have the attention span for a long night of music. For more than a half hour, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou were just too pleasant and polite to drown out the chit-chat and steal the attention away from the bright light of people's Instagram accounts.
