Yeah, you might still play kickball, collect comic books (sorry, “graphic novels”), and walk around Billyburg wearing a T-shirt repping your favorite band from high school, but deep down, you are an adult. So don’t sleep on Sara Bareilles just because her music is labeled “adult contemporary.” “Love Song” (as in “I’m not gonna write you one/’Cause you asked for it”) is still her biggest hit, but the inspirational “Brave” is all over the radio, and I see her anti-mansplaining anthem “King of Anything” appearing in your Spotify activity far more than you’d like to admit. Tonight, she headlines the very adult Radio City Music Hall. See you there.
