Lily Allen chain-smoked her way through a rousing set during her Friday night show at the Electric Factory on September 19th. Weaving her way through large, illuminated baby bottles, Lily dove into the crowd-pleasers, occasionally stopping for a drag on her cigarette or a sip from her Big Gulp.

Entering the stage behind a plush smiley face pillow, she launched into the title track off her latest album “Sheezus”. Back up dancers appeared on stage and brought some physical energy while Lily focused on her vocals and connecting with the fans. She often talked to fans in the first few rows and read their signs throughout the performance.

Her set included radio favorites like “Everyone’s At It” and “Smile”. Likewise, in true Lily Allen fashion, the pop star also included some unexpected songs such as a brief rendition of  “No Flex Zone”. Finishing up her set with the fan favorite (and extremely unfriendly to radio) song, “Fuck You”, she had the factory packed to the walls and shaking with enjoyment.
