Christina Perri and Colbie Caillat @ Artpark, Lewiston, New York Wednesday, July 29, 2015

  Artpark in Lewiston was the hottest place to be last Wednesday. The soaring temperatures matched the heat onstage as Colbi Caillat and Christina Perri brought their “Girls Night Out” tour to town.

  Caillat opened the show as the daytime heat was lingering into the evening. Dressed in a long black, open-front skirt outfit, she launched into a set of originals that had the mostly female crowd singing along. Caillat had an interesting start to her career as one of the top unsigned artists to appear on “My Space.” Her music is lighter fare, matching her laid back California lifestyle. Hits like “Bubbly” and show closer “Brighter” were met with squeals and screams from the crowd. Unlike most pop artists, Caillat writes her own music. A talent on guitar as well as piano, she brings a classy and sophisticated style to the stage.

  Closing the show was young singer Christina Perri. A powerhouse voice as well as guitar and piano playing skills make her an up and coming young star. A string of hits like “Burning Gold”, “I Believe” and show ending “Jar of Hearts”, “A Thousand Years” and ‘I Don’t Wanna Break” had the crowd standing for most of the second half of the show. As the show ended, a young group of girls exited singing her songs and proclaiming it was the “best concert of my life.” With the talent of Caillat and Perri, there will be many more “best concerts” in their young lives for sure.
