Live Music: Sia (dressed like a crayon drawing)

Sia's new album, "Some People Have Real Problems" (love the title) came out this week in the US, and the closing track is the bizarrely addictive single "Buttons". There have been some really cool live cuts of the song floating around since the music video was released. The best and strangest vid to surface was a performance at Bush Hall where Sia spends the entire performance dressed like a crayon drawing (you have to see it to get it). She's a shockingly good live performer, and here's some proof. The first vid is a complete but very distant video of the performance, and under that is a minute-long exerpt that shows you a close-up of Sia's costume (and what appears to be some kind of interpretive dance that goes with it).
