To put it simply,
ONE OF THE BEST NIGHTS OF MY LIFE.
|My I-HAVE-BEEN-WAITING-MONTHS-FOR-THIS-SO-EXCITED face.|
I didn't really know much about The Stepkids, but they played a pretty groovy set. These guys had skills, and their psychedelic light show mesmerized us all. My favorite was watching the drummer, who was smiling the entire set. Happiest drummer I have ever seen.
And then, the main event.
When her band started playing the intro, I was so psyched I could barely handle it. When Kimbra came running on stage looking like a crazy person, wearing the wildest dress I've ever seen, and rocking out on her tambourine—I WAS IN HEAVEN.
|I loved her purple-hula-skirt-cape... or whatever the crap that thing was. She really looked like a whimsical comic book character, and her dress kept evolving throughout the set.|
This lady is just BANANAS. When she performs, she holds nothing back—and her voice is just stupid-incredible. Here's a video that some random youtuber posted from the show. Not the greatest quality, but you get the idea...
My friends Lauren and Jordyn also came along for the show. I don't know if they understood what they were in for. When I found them after the set, they looked awestruck—and more importantly, both left with Kimbra merch. Two Kimbra fans were born that night.
Every moment of that show was just incredible. Still not over it.
