BRANDI CARLILE @ THE MERRIAM
Brandi Carlile, Queen of the World Cafe Live, stepped up into Merriam Theater performing in front of her largest Philadelphia audience to date. Spectacular from start to finish, Ms. Carlile never disappoints. The highlight of the show was an unplugged version of “What Can I Say,” where the band pulled the cords and stepped away from the microphones — yet they were heard loud and clear from every inch of the venue. Standing ovation well deserved.
