It’s only been six months since Sky Ferreira performed for the very first time ever; that  was at The Bootleg Bar, the smaller wing of the Bootleg Theater venue that only holds 250 people.  Last night, Sky returned to The Bootleg, which sold out; the venue promptly moving her show to the much larger Theater which holds about 500 and adding a second night (tonight).   

Since then, she’s moved to New York, made her television debut on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and became the new face of Forever 21’s “The Festival 2013 Capsule Collection.  And recently, she just came off performing at South By Southwest where she battled laryngitis. 

Performing live for only a few months, you can still sense Sky’s nervous energy in her performance but being only 17 years of age, that’s something she’ll start to get used to pretty quick. She’s been constantly touring in preparation of the release of her debut album I’m Not Alright expected to drop later this year. 

Last night, sportin' a new short pixie-cut, she showcased what that album will sound like - catchy hooks and melodies in songs like “You’re Not The One” and “Red Lips” to the vulnerable, dark melodies in “Sad Dreams” and “Werewolf.”  She even sang “Happy Birthday” to one of her friends and previewed some new songs such as “24 Hours” and “Can’t Say No.”   

Sky Ferreira plays again tonight at The Bootleg Theater. She goes on at 10 pm.  Tickets are still available right HERE

Bootleg Theater Setlist 4-10-13: Lost / Ain’t Your Right / Werewolf / Can’t Say No / Red Lips / Sad Dreams / You’re Not The One / Ghost / 24 Hours / I Will Always Love You / Everything is Embarrassing
