It’s been a while since Suede played the Eighth Step. Her most recent performance was back in the early 2000s, when the Eighth Step was briefly based at the Cohoes Music Hall. And back in the ’90s, she also performed as a solo as well as a member of the Flirtations at the Step’s original and long-time home – the church on the corner of State and Willett streets in Albany.
This time around, Suede was making her debut performance at the Step’s current home, the GE Theater at Proctors in Schenectady. And she was there last Saturday all by here lonesome – unless you count a grand piano, acoustic mini-Martin guitar and a silver trumpet.
