The Girl at the Rock Show: Broods/Taking Back Sunday/Mat Kearney

Well, that would be an interesting show if those 3 artists were on the same lineup, wouldn’t it? Worry not, because they were 3 separate shows!

On Friday, March 27, I went to see Broods at the 9:30 Club. Well… I actually just went for the opener, Erik Hassle.

1540396_10153256699198203_7348844391028015921_oThe last time I went to a show at the 9:30 Club to ONLY see the opener, was in 2012. My friend from England had told me about this new artist over there, who when she showed me a song, I immediately fell in love. I saw that he was supporting Snow Patrol on a US tour, and I knew I had to see him, for I feared that he would never tour the states again. Well, his name was Ed Sheeran.

I had a similar sensation when I first heard Erik [from Sweden], and I’ve been listening to him since the Myspace days. I had the chance to meet him after his set and he said this was only his second US tour; his first one was supporting MØ [from Denmark]. Here’s to [hopefully] seeing more of Erik in the states!

erik

The next day, Saturday, March 28, there were acts I wanted to go to during 2 simultaneous shows, so I turned the night into a choose-your-own-adventure.

I listen to a band called letlive., and I’d never seen them live, but I heard that their shows were crazy. They just destroy everything in sight and climb all over things. I very much wanted to see this, and I had my chance when I saw they were opening for Taking Back Sunday at our very own Rams Head Live.

And they didn’t let me down:

letliveThat’s the lead singer, Jason Butler, hanging off the second floor balcony railing. I wasn’t let down, but somebody definitely should’ve let him down [bad joke? oh well].

I had my next move planned perfectly. You see, letlive. had gone on at 7pm, and I wanted to go see Mat Kearney and Parachute at The Fillmore Silver Spring, which started at 8pm. I wasn’t pressed on seeing the opener of that show, so by leaving Rams Head Live at 7:30 and driving to The Fillmore, I would get there in time to see Parachute. Perfect.

Parachute was flawless, as usual. I’ve seen them a handful of times, but I think it was my first time seeing them perform in front of an older crowd. Being that it was a Mat Kearney show, there were a lot of older couples in the crowd, probably on a date night.

And a romantic night it was when Mat Kearney took the stage.

matIn addition to having a wonder catalog of songs, this man has his own wine. WINE. It was for sale at the merch booth. Seriously. You could order a case of wine at the show and they’d ship it to you.

That’s some sophisticated stuff.

And that ends the story of my sophisticated musical journey over the weekend.

The Girl at the Rock Show: The Lone Bellow

And so the adventure into unknown territory continues…

On March 13, 2015, I went to The Hamilton in DC for the first time. Why? My favorite folk/country trio, The Lone Bellow, was playing.

lone bellow stageI’d seen them 3 times prior, and I fall in love with them more and more each time. This was their first tour on the heels of the release of their second album, Then Came The Morning (and the show sold out before the album was even out!!).

The experience my friends and I had at the venue before the show was great, too. My friends and I each ordered food and drinks, including “Marietta” punch (the special of the evening named after a song on their new album). And before you knew it, it was showtime.

lone bellow seatsThe band brought their usual foot stomping/heart-tugging/gut-wrenching tunes that had me on an emotional rollercoaster for 2 hours. The way they arrange their harmonies and feature the voices of all 3 members throughout the night is perfect. The female member, Kanene, has a sultry, haunting voice that leaves the hair standing on the back of your neck. Put all 3 voices together, though, and I just sit back and melt.

If you’ve never had the chance to see them live, check out my favorite video of them, singing “You Never Need Nobody” from their first album.
