Location: 
Crescent Ballroom

Excitement for music was alive on October 13th in Phoenix as three big names were performing in close proximity to one another. I was most excited to see my favorite band, Misterwives, at Crescent Ballroom. The line stretched out by the entrance and at 7, we all piled in. My friends and I were front row and we could rest our hands on the stage. Opening act CRUISR came out with fun poppy music that had the whole crowd moving. We were right in front of the bass player and got to hear how awesome he was.

José González played a great show last Tuesday night. He introduced songs from his new album Vestiges and Claws which was released earlier this year. The turnout was spectacular for a Tuesday night, the place was packed. The audience really responded to the music as everyone was bobbing, swaying, and full on vibe-dancing.

Location: 
Ak-Chin Pavilion

The second Florence Welch sauntered onto the stage, she had us hooked. From her bare feet to her shear blush blouse under a white silk vest with matching bell bottoms, she exuded confidence. Her eleven bandmates, known as the Machine, matched her beat for beat the second she belted out the first lines of “What the Water Gave Me”.

Meg Myers @ Club Congress

Concert Date: 
Wed, 09/30/2015
Location: 
Club Congress

Meg Myers conducted a killer performance at Club Congress on September 30. Arriving to the venue at about the time doors opened, the line was already flooding out the front doors and curving around the corner; people were stoked and ready to see Myers. All the attendees were ushered into the cozy stage room which smelled delicately of booze and sweat, where opener Jarryd James began his set about 8 pm. James was an interesting choice as an opener for Myers, as his whispery tone and Timberlake-like falsetto do not completely match Myers' tough yodel.
