I didn’t show up to WaMu theater expecting to see Lorde deliver a rote, boilerplate performance, but at the same time, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a pop show that heartfelt.

It was the story she told toward the end of her set that did it. She was introducing “Ribs” one of the softer tracks on her debut album “Pure Heroine,” out last September.

“I’m going to tell you about this song,” she said.
