Friday's set saw Thomas performing old favorites and a quite a few from With Love, a record that sounds better live, with a lot of the production flourishes stripped away. She also took time to tell jokes (both as alter-ego Sheila Saputo in an opening bit and herself between songs), tell stories and express her gratefulness in the rare on-stage artist confessional that seemed genuine and unrehearsed.
It's almost impossible to not be won over by Thomas's blend of childlike eagerness and unabashed vulnerability — qualities that spill over into her best songwriting.
