The show review that isn't really a full show review but instead a couple brief observations collected best I could.

I'd love to review the Sky Ferreira show at The Vic last weekend but I can't since I could only pay attention to about 1/3 of it due to a very inebriated and extremely friendly gentleman who attempted to keep up an ongoing conversation with me during her entire set. I can say that she's already turned her emotional live set fem P4K Music Fest last summer into more of a finely tuned machine of a pop show now. She's lost a bit of the "aw shucks" you like me, but that does open up the game for a bit of additional confident swagger on Ferreira's part. It was a solid set, based on the snippets I enjoyed without interruption.

Smith Westerns played after her and despite headlining in their hometown did a pretty good job of greatly thinning out the crowd at The Vic a scan two songs into their set. I left after three. Over time their already pretty vanilla songs fem their last two albums have grown ever thinner in their pleasures, and the band's live set has done the same. That's too bad.

I didn't shoot the show—I'm never certain whether The Vic will have a barrier—but Prefix has some nice galleries for you to peruse.
