Singer-songwriter Maggie Rose wrapped up last week’s mini-tour of the West Coast (which included a stop at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles) Saturday night (October 14th) at Moonshine Beach in San Diego.

The crowd came to party, and Maggie indulged them with her sassiness. Her set included the sultry “Body on Fire,” the self-confident “Love Me More,” the surprising cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and two originals to be released this Friday: “Pull You Through” and “Just Getting By.”

She noted the atmosphere in Las Vegas the previous night was happily upbeat when she performed her radio single, “Better,” reminding the crowd, “Life is for the living.” She described “Looking Back Now” (identified by its original title “Whiskey and a Gun”), as a “cautionary tale,” and brought all the sass to “I Ain’t Your Mama.”

But Maggie also proved herself well-versed in classics like Dolly Parton‘s “9 to 5” (declaring, “It’s the freaking weekend!”) and Blondie’s “Heart of Glass.” She paid tribute to the late Tom Petty with “I Won’t Back Down,” and encouraged the crowd to couple up for Hank Williams‘ “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” (“I better see some dancing!”) while the lights dimmed and disco ball spun.

It was an apropos cover for the singer, whose old soul and other-worldly voice are definitely reminiscent of Patsy Cline.
