We've become quite acclimated to the traditional New York City rock club venue; all of which have their own alluring identity, whether it's neighborhood proximity or musical history. But in reality, they're mirror images of one another: towering balconies where a spot at the railing is sought after real estate. Recently, we escaped the normal settings for a one-of-a-kind performance by recent New York migrant Sara Bareilles, who took charge of the piano behind the eerie haze of the Manderley Bar at The McKittrick Hotel following the spectral Sleep No More theatrics.
Sarah, who earlier in the evening suited up to live out her own personal dream of participating in the otherworldly theater performance (she was dressed as a nurse), welcomed a packed lounge with songs off her latest album, The Blessed Unrest, including the fervent hit "Brave" as well as the poignant "Manhattan". We're thrilled to be sharing this rare concert experience with you all.
