An ethereal voice isn’t necessarily a powerful one, but that’s never been the case with Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power. Taking the 9:30 Club stage last night in support of Sun, her first release in six years, Marshall showed that her voice is as strong as ever. Backed by tremendous visual displays, a three-piece band, and very little general lighting, Marshall sang from the shadows, but those shadows rendered the 9:30 Club as quiet as a prayer.
