Review: Ke$ha at Koolhaus

Cliches and kitsch aside Ke$ha treated the crowd to a bona fide pop performance on Wednesday night. The popstar notorious for her party-party attitude brought along a dance crew, costume changes, and rave-style lighting for a near hour and a half performance that covered all her hits including the breakout “Tik Tok” There was hardly a lull in the evening with dancers decked in literal costumes including a pear (yes, like the fruit) and a part of the male anatomy for the not-so-subtle track “Grow A Pear”. Unfortunately mid-way through the show Ke$ha went for a power-ballad that fell flat and only recouped when the lights came back up and the party anthems resumed. All in all though, Ke$ha put on a pure pop performance that proves to any of her critics that she’s got the audience eating out of the palm of her hand.

Ke$ha at Koolhaus

If you happened to be walking along Queen’s Quay on the evening of Wednesday, April 6 I’m certain you witnessed something along the lines of scantily clad underage girls covered in mass amounts of glitter and dollar signs drawn on their skin not-so-discretely sipping from McDonald’s cups. Sure, it’s not your typical mid-week sighting but put these girls into the context of a Ke$ha concert and you’ve got a sold-out show at the Kool Haus. While you’re at it, throw in an opening act that calls himself “Beardo The Trailer Park Hero” that looks like a bad 80’s movie in human form, and you’ve got yourself a party.
