Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Colbie Caillat

When: Sat., Aug. 30, 8 p.m. 2014

In the early ’70s, Mattel introduced Malibu Barbie, a blonde and tanned version of the toy that came with several summery outfits. The litigious Mattel lawyers might have a case against Colbie Caillat. It’s as if the leggy SoCal-based singer-songwriter is the living embodiment of Malibu Barbie. The singer’s new album, Gypsy Heart doesn’t hit shelves until the end of September, but the single “Try,” a commentary about conformity, is already a hit thanks to its clever video featuring a variety of different women lip-syncing the song. It helps that Caillat’s breathy vocals sound sharp and the song has a simple but memorable melody. (Niesel)
