Tonight’s Concert Pick: Sara Bareilles at Electric Factory

By

Judging by her latest music video and most recent album, Sara Bareilles has clearly adapted a fearless and spunky image. Bareilles first broke into the Billboard pop scene in 2007 with her spiteful single “Love Song” (off her major-label debut, Little Voice), which served as an F–you to any token, chart-topping love song. Then in 2010 she released “King Of Anything” (off Kaleidoscope Heart) as another personal declaration of freedom and dismissal of expectations. But, unlike “Love Song”—which stood out among the soft, jazzy tunes that defined Little Voice—”King Of Anything” had the full support of a girl-power-centric album. Kaleidoscope Heart is driven by deliberately constructed, upbeat break-up songs; the best illustration of the especially bubbly and self-assertive Bareilles is her video for “Gonna Get Over You,” which was released last month and features her sporting a greased poof and leather jacket. Sara Bareilles performs with Elizabeth And The Catapult and Ben Lee at 7:30 pm at The Electric Factory; tickets for the all ages-show are $32 ($37.20 via Ticketmaster). —Caitlyn Grabenstein
