It seemed like a fitting close to the 2012 summer season at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center…
“Dog Days Are Over,” Florence Welch declared with her final encore last Sunday evening as she wrapped up the SPAC season at the Saratoga Springs amphitheater last Sunday evening.
Over the course of a scant 90-minute headlining performance by Florence + the Machine, Welch transformed her onstage persona from faerie pixie to R&B soul belter, from silent movie star vamp to art-rock diva, from new-age earth mother to dancing queen… And yet somehow she managed to maintain her own utterly unique personality and sound.
