Lily Allen at 9:30 Club
Friday night, I went to see Lily Allen in a sold out show at the 9:30 Club. I had a great time.
The opener was Baltimore DJ Aaron Lacrate - I think mp3s should not be used for djing because the sound quality of his set was crap- the 9:30 has fantastic sound, and it sounded like a blown speaker was playing during his set.
Lily Allen was really impressive. I love her voice and the fact that her music has rocksteady and ska beats. She pretty much did all the songs from her debut record, Alright, Still, and to fill the rest of the set she did some pretty great covers of Keane's "Everybody's Changing", The Kooks' "Naive", and The Specials' "Blank Expression".
