Even though Katy Perry is purely bubble-gum pop, we at BYT felt obliged to cover her show at the 9:30 Club on Friday night. When Katy pirouetted onto the stage at around 10, I thought one of the dozen eighth grade girls standing next to me might pass out from the excitement. Luckily, there were a number of parents on-hand keeping a watchful eye.
Seeing as I wasn’t really going to the show based on the quality of Katy Perry’s music, but rather her celebrity, I was actually surprised that she sings well live…and actually plays the guitar. Her quirky rants in between songs were also quite charming and full of a girl-power message. Making the show worth while for the boyfriends in the crowd and the girls who actually do kiss girls, Katy even flashed her silver undies at us a few times.
