Sounds Like San Diego: October 5

Sia brings her electrifying stage show to Viejas Arena for your mid-week kicks

I have seen Sia twice in person. Long before she was topping pop charts, Sia was part of Zero Seven and played a private radio listener show at a studio in Rancho Bernardo. There were more people in the band at the time than there were audience members, and I will never forget hearing her sing "Destiny" just a few feet away from me. The second time, she was at Sunset Sessions, after "Breathe Me" was used in the pivotal closing scene of "Six Feet Under." That one was a little more bizarre of a performance, and based on her interviews, likely why these days she prefers performing disguised with her black and white bow wig. Tonight, she's at Viejas Arena, and I can only hope you experience the same chill and hair-on-your-neck-raising experience as I did. Twice. Around town, Cute Is What We Aim For is at the Casbah, Dizzy Wright is at the Observatory, and our friends Schizophonics play a mid-week boogie at Whistle Stop.
