San Diego’s Miss Erika Davies celebrated her birthday with a swanky show at Seven Grand on Thursday. The North Park whiskey joint was a good fit for Davies’ top-shelf stylings, though she did have to beg some chatty attendees to stop talking over her set. Her current backing band — comprised of Trio Gadjo‘s Aaron Mahn and Jeremy Eikam — provided solid support, but nothing brought the house down quite like her a cappella rendition of “Empty Shell.” Even the gabby bros in the back of the bar shut up for that one.
Ever the class act, Davies baked and distributed birthday cupcakes to the crowd. She was also surprised mid-set by her sister and a friend, who appeared onstage dressed as a giant birthday cake.
