Sara Bareilles is one of those artists you just can't help but love. The singer-songwriter proves pop doesn't have to be trashy by keeping her clothes on and putting the focus on her music and her interaction with fans. Bareilles played piano and guitar at her show at Marquee Theatre last night, having a good time despite the warm September heat inside. And she made the audience, including The Summer Set's Jess Bowen, laugh with her in-between-song banter, using a storyteller style to connect her fans to her songs. Here is what audience members thought of the concert.
