Charli XCX in Concert at Stage AE (Fri., 8/5/22)

Charli XCX is an English singer and songwriter who comes from Cambridge and Start Hill, Essex. She posted her songs on Myspace in 2008 which led to a promoter asking her to perform at an event. She signed with Asylum Records and released a series of mixtapes. Her first big taste of solo success was in 2014 when her song “Boom Clap” was included on the soundtrack of the film The Fault in Our Stars and became her first solo top-ten single on the Billboard Hot 100. She has five albums out with the latest being Crash, released in March. You can catch her this month at Stage AE. Special guest is ELIO. Doors open at 7 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (R.H.)
