Seven Bands To See At Boston Calling, May 2016: #1 Sia

With less than a week left, we’re back with our list of who you need to be keeping an eye out for at the Boston Calling Music Festival!

On our list so far: #7. Lizzo, #6. The Vaccines, #5. The Front Bottoms, #4. HAIM, #3. Elle King, #2. City and Colour

Today we talk about our #1 pick, Sia.

Each year when I do this list, I set a rule for myself – I try to not include headliners. They obviously don’t need help attracting fans; they’re headlining a music festival. But, when one of the headliners is one of
the most eccentric, electric, enthralling performers around, I’ll break the rule (it’s my rule anyway, so whatever). Long story short: Sia. There’s not much I can say here that hasn’t already been said of her – she’s as much of a performer as she is the performance itself, and she
is one of those once-in-a-while artists that shouldn’t be missed when the chance presents itself.

Catch Them: Friday, 9:45 pm
