On October 19, Mary Lambert stunned the Sinclair into silence. Embarking on her own headlining tour to promote the release of her new album, Heart On Your Sleeve, Mary brought the concert experience to new and unique level.
Fitting with the genre of music Mary sings, the crowd at the Sinclair was hushed; definitely one of the quietest concerts I have ever been to. As soon as Mary entered the stage, however, the audience erupted in applause, cheers, and snaps. Funnily enough, Mary made a note of the audience snapping rather clapping at certain points in her songs due to her background in spoken word and poetry. That night was definitely an intimate experience, a “night with Mary Lambert,” if you will. Playing some of her more popular songs such as “Body Love,” “Secrets,” and an exclusive song only performed live, “Red Lipstick,” Mary really made it an unforgettable experience. At times the audience would roar with laughter from Mary’s hilarious personal stories, but would also cry from the sheer raw emotion that her songs evoked. Mary is an incredible role model for people of all different backgrounds-as evidenced in her story about wanting to create social change through her performance with Madonna at the Grammys-and I would highly recommend seeing her perform live if given the chance.
