It’s Karen Carpenter’s birthday and here’s some really fine concert footage of the pop goddess performing at the tender age of 22 in Australia in 1972.

The drums are up in the mix and can hear what a fine drummer Karen was and at times in her singing and attitude you can detect an edge that belied the warm and fuzzy mainstream image that was part of the packaging of The Carpenters. She was one of the original riot grrrls.
