Event Recap & Photos: Dawn Richard Performs at SOBs in NYC 10/25/12
Last night in NYC, Dawn Richard performed at SOBs. She immediately set the tone for the night as she hit the stage and shut things with performing her single “Bombs” with a crazy amount of energy. With her background dancers flanked beside her, she didn’t miss a beat as she went through songs from her successful “Armour On” EP. A highlight was a stripped down/acoustic version of “Automatic” which took on whole different vibe from the uptempo high energy version on the album. Since this was originally scheduled to be an album release show for her “Goldenheart” album (it was pushed back after she signed a distribution deal), it was only right she premier new songs from the album. The sound of the new material is definitely high energy, new age r&b which will come off as an extension of the EP. She wrapped up the show with an encore, performing her new 80’s inspired single “86”. The show was also opened by up and coming artist Skye.
