Charli XCX

Though her debut album is still in the works, Charli XCX performed like a pop star already headlining arenas: Her tortured but hardly wounded alto never wavered on breakout ballad "Stay Away," while an air of tragic consequence tinged her delivery of "You give yourself to hell" during her cover of Echo and the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon." While perhaps not all Charli XCX cuts are created equal - there's something a tad tiring in the repetition of "End of the World" or "How Can I" - the ones that stand out do so for good reason. She crooned on top of a sample of Gold Panda's indelible "You," sent all of Bowery into a frenzy with "Nuclear Seasons," and brought the world down on "Grins," (from her mixtape Heartbreaks and Earthquakes), a cut produced by Blood Diamonds with synths that soar in catastrophic bliss. The night ended with "You're The One," ostensibly the first single from Charli XCX's debut, and this time she put her foot down: "Everyone's gotta fuckin dance," she decreed. Watching her jump and flail around - a bonkers freeform style that seemed part hardcore mosh pit fist work, part hip-hop posturing, and part all night alone in your bedroom dance-a-thon - it was hard not to obey. [Rolling Stone]
Charli XCX brought her tour, which also included an LA show with Azealia Banks, to NYC this past Saturday (7/28) for a show at Bowery Ballroom with St. Lucia. Charli's set was 10 songs long and and there was no encore, despite the crowd's demand for one. More pictures from the show, including one of the setlist, below.
