Last Thursday, after seeing my friend Jess play at MoMa, I headed off to Mercury Lounge for Oberhofer’s late show for Spotify. I had a pretty daunting task for the evening as I found myself in the awkward situation of shooting the same show for 2 websites.
People went absolutely wild for Oberhofer. There were even some crowd surfers… It gave me tremendous pleasure to see this reaction to them. In only a short while, I have watched Brad go from a shy performer to ripping up the stage. Pete, Matt and Dylan also lent their talents to the explosive show.
EXITMUSIC was a bit darker than the 2 bands that bookended them. I thoroughly enjoyed their set.
Wow, these ladies were fun – what a great way to start the night. They were so energetic the singer (accidentally) slapped me in the head while lading from a jump 🙂
All in all, a pretty terrific night. Many thanks to Dave, Madalyn and Grace for the press pass. So lovely to meet and hang with Tess, Katie and Genevieve. Always nice to see my friend, Simon.
