Shira E sings like she’s pulling herself up out of the first gilded page of a storybook, bolstered by an army of drums and synths and her own swirly harmonies. She strings together metaphors that ground immense feelings in familiar senses, graspable objects (“I’m a saucer of milk, I’m cinched silk”). If the Khaleesi was allowed to bring an electro-soul star along on her worldwide rampage, she’d choose Shira E. Instead, fans have sent her on a two-month tour via Indiegogo support, and tonight she’s lighting up the stage at the Red Room at Cafe 939 on Boylston Street. She’s joined by neon duo Home Body, wherein Eric Hnatow builds electronic cages around Haley Morgan’s tall crowned voice like the scaffolding around the Statue of Liberty (who is, in this simile, winking at the crowd over sweet sunglasses). Come to the Red Room tonight and get your blood moving!
