Melanie Martinez Shines at The Trocadero

Ever heard of the “cry baby aesthetic”? Well, it exists (especially on Tumblr), and I wasn’t aware of it until I came across singer/songwriter Melanie Martinez. Martinez, who released her debut album Cry Baby back in August last year, filled the album with tracks centered around the cutesy pastel theme. Martinez has built a large fan base since then, with her sold out show at the Trocadero Theatre Saturday night proving that even more so. Martinez, with openers Alvarez Kings, brought a whole new world of crazy and cute to the venue that night. ...

Recap: Melanie Martinez @ World Cafe Live

Words and photos by Megan Hawkey

Breakout star of NBC’s The Voice Melanie Martinez played here in Philly at World Cafe Live on Wednesday night with support from AJR.

The electronic pop-trio consisting of three brothers took the stage at 7 for a short set of cheesy love songs.

Her audition was an acoustic cover of Britney Spear’s “Toxic” that brought new life to the overplayed original. Her voice is raspy, unique, and perfectly imperfect. She was one of the few original artists of the season and I was pleasantly surprised that she made it far in the ...
