Ingrid Michaelson @ The Wonder Ballroom
Saturday, October 30th
The Guggenheim Grotto
128 NE Russell Street
$16 Adv./$18 Day Of
Blending a vibrant energy with a song writer's craft the music of Ingrid Michaelson brims with a fresh youthful energy. With wide sweeping melodies, an exuberant beat and awkwardly honest lyrics her song have a way of nesting themselves in your head, overwhelming your central nervous system and making you dance at inappropriate moments.The wonderful mix of the sweet-hearted playfulness of a young girl and the worldly confidence of an old soul makes this music easily accessible to a broad audience both young and old. Lovely and fun Michaelsone is sure to set the Wonder ballroom to life this Saturday night and since the show is sold out the people of Portland know it.
Joined by the Irish based duo of The Guggenhein Grotto who's artistic styling have an appealingly diverse flavor, this concert should be a showcase of songwriting mastery. If you don't have tickets, there might just be one or two out there if you look hard enough, but if you do make sure you wear your dancing shoes because there's no doubt you'll need them.
