Sia at the 9:30 Club

Sia

Bisexual Australian Sia Furler first came to attention in 2005 for her hauntingly beautiful, pleading ballad “Breathe Me,” which dramatically closed out HBO’s Six Feet Under. The album that followed was a serious, studied affair. But last year’s We Are Born, Sia’s third, proved that the once downtempo/chill-out artist with the appealingly elastic warble is a master up-tempo pop tunesmith at heart, clearly weaned on Cyndi Lauper and Madonna. She offered one insanely catchy melody after another, with tunes that make you want to dance and sing along. And now she returns to the 9:30 Club, after a magical, engaging show last May. If you missed that, you get a rare second chance. Danish electro-pop songstress Oh Land opens. Thursday, July 28. Doors at 7 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $25. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.

There’s still time to win a pair of tickets to Sia. Enter by Monday, July 25, at noon.
