Carly Rae Jepsen at the Bellwether: Pop star Jepsen is performing for three nights in a row at new venue the Bellwether, on a bill with Harvey Sutherland. That follows her recent triumphant performance at WeHo Pride.
“It’s gonna be a wild time,” she said in June. “I mean, I don’t get to play L.A. a lot, which is crazy. I’m a Canadian girl who got picked up by the L.A. buzz and was introduced to a world beyond Canada. I think I just remember every couple of weekends calling my parents like, ‘Can you send more clothes?’ Ten years later, I’m like, ‘I think this is where I live now.’”
“I don’t feel like I’ve really stopped,” she also said. “But it’s been a good pace of things. This has been, I’m gone for a month, I’m home for a week, I’m gone for two weeks, I’m home for a week. So it’s been a nice pace of getting to go and do the thing I love, and also have a life in between. It’s great.”
“It took a while to write because I historically overwrite, and I was no different with this project,” she said of the new album. “But I ended up writing a lot of it on Zoom, because that was the only option. Once the world started to open up again, I would travel to workshop some of the songs in person after. But a lot of the main writing was done in my pajamas in front of my computer in my house.”
Carly Rae Jepsen at the Bellwether: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 11, Saturday, August 12, and Sunday, August 13 at the Bellwether.
