August 12, 2022 / 5:30pm to 9:00pm / Free
Over the years, Rozzi has carved out a powerful niche as a singer-songwriter who is unafraid to share the depths of her soul with audiences. As it was on Bad Together, her ability to connect over shared experience and universal moments is at the forefront of Berry. On the bold, R&B-styled “I Can’t Go To The Party,” Rozzi explores the mix of anxiety and longing around bumping into an ex out in public. “Sometimes I feel silly, talking about a boyfriend,” she admits. “But the songs aren’t really just about a boyfriend. They’re about being changed by someone and how that makes you grow.”
