The band Sawyer kicked off the evening with an infectious energy having the audience swaying from side to side all night. The Indie-Pop Duo is comprised of Kel Taylor & Emma Harvey. These ladies had a special way of really connecting with the crowd. I loved their cute, quirky energy. “Emotional Girls” was easy to relate to and made me think. This amazing duo has so much potential and will greatly excel on the rest of this tour.
THE WLDLFE, an indie-pop band from Indianapolis, IN, rushed onto the stage. “Replace it, Forget it” was one of the standout songs throughout their performance, having the audience participate in singing along the catchy lines. Anyone at the show who didn’t know who this band was before the show are more than likely a fan now. This band played their hearts out on stage, giving the most they possibly could. The WLDLFE already has two albums out — I.L.Y. and I’m Not Worried Anymore — and are gaining the attention of more and more fans. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them on Billboards charts with how many listens they have across all music platforms.
Seconds before Nightly came to the stage, the lights went down and the screaming crowd echoed repeatedly in the intimate room. The alternative-pop band is well known for its pop-synth sound, unique guitar riffs, captivating vocals, and stirring lyrics. Nightly brought their newest release, The Movies, to life for the first time and their strong fan base had already known all the lyrics. This song had been barely out for a week!
I’m not sure how many major improvements the band could do with the rest of their tour with how perfect their performance was for the first stop of their headlining tour. I see them coming back shortly of this new decade, playing an even bigger venue. They ended their set with their most heartfelt song “Twenty-Something,” a personal song to them that turned out to be such a hit. Ever hear of the phrase some music sounds better live? Nightly proves that for a fact.
