So, songstress Fiona Apple played a set at Mesa Arts Center the other night. It was really very good, with Apple seeming quite happy in front of the crowd (bizarre rant about "small-titted girls" and her label aside).

But anyway, that's Tuesday night's Apple news. Here's today's: Apple has been arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas, for hash possession.

TMZ reports that cops turned up hash on Apple's bus, and that "It all went down in Sierra Blanca, TX -- where stars like Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Armie Hammer have all been arrested for drugs in the past."

Fans in Texas, like our good friend Craig Hlavaty at Houston Press' Rocks Off blog, are wondering if her scheduled gig at Austin's ACL Live Live show tonight and at Houston's Bayou Music Center on Friday, September 21, are still scheduled. (No word yet, but we'll update when we know.)

Tuesday night's show was really good -- so we hope stuff gets sorted out. Bet the banter is really going to be something once Apple takes the stage.
