Sia concert review
Baltamour blogger Maryann James was at Sia's show at the 9:30 Club.
From the stuffed animals on stage to her non-choreographed, impromptu dances on stage, it is apparent that Sia is the antithesis of the sterile, manufactured super-pop machine.
Bathed in darkness and dressed in outfits that made Sia and her bandmates look like a child's fluorescent drawings come to life, they kicked off the show with "Buttons," a single off her new album, "Some People Have Real Problems."
In between songs, Sia joked about adult diapers and the best times during the show to take a bathroom break. She was a burst of fun and energy, jumping around and dancing during breaks in songs and sometimes even getting her stuffed blue mic monkey a chance to sing. Though there were a few problems with audio feedback (get it together 9:30), her amazingly soulful voice shone through.
Highlights: Any chance she got to show off her fabulous voice, such as in "Lentil," "You Have Been Loved," and the song she's probably most known for, "Breathe Me."
