Carly Rae Jepsen dazzles NYC with two sold-out shows


This past Tuesday night, Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen celebrated the release of her seventh studio album, The Loveliest Time, with the second of two sold-out shows at New York City’s Pier 17.

Producer and multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Paradise, best known by his moniker Poolside, kicked off the night with his light but danceable set that brought sunny vibes and liquid rhythm. His style of music has appropriately been dubbed “Daytime Disco.” He played several songs off his forthcoming album, Blame It All On Love (set to be released on October 20th), and got the audience in the right mood on the hot summer night.

Carly Rae Jepsen took the stage to the roar of fans and bright, flashing lights. She had already played a matinee show earlier that day (after the one scheduled the previous night was cancelled due to weather), but neither Jepsen nor her band bore any signs of exhaustion. She tore through her twenty-six song set that included songs from all seven of her albums with precision and high energy. Some personal and crowd favorites were “Run Away With Me”, “Psychedelic Switch”, and her 2012 hit single “Call Me Maybe”. Throughout her set, Jepsen and her band had incredible chemistry, all smiling and clearly enjoying themselves. She closed out the night with not one, but two encores as a thank you to her fans for sticking by her.
