The original MIA was sublime in her opening performance for the reunited Beachwood Sparks at the Echoplex on Friday, offering Eastern-tinged folk quietly enlivened by her only accompaniment, a particularly enthusiastic bongo player. Lucky for me (and anyone with ears), Mia Doi Todd closed her set with “What If We Do,” one of my favorite songs ever and certainly the finest on 2005’s Manzanita, an album made with the helping hands of the Sparks’ Brent Rademaker.
