For locals or those of you who have read this blog for long enough, KC has a really great music scene. Specifically alternative music shows through the Buzz. We have been to many of their shows in the past Mumford & Sons (twice), Beach Ball 2013 (Phoenix, Alt-J.. ) etc... but haven't really ventured out to many of their smaller shows. We finally did, and I am so glad. I will be on the lookout for more FREE- $10 concerts in the future! They are typically pretty big names and really great shows from what I hear.
A few weeks ago we spontaneously took a trip to Power & Light for our first $5 show, Fitz and the Tantrums.
We had never actually been into Power & Light, but it is a pretty neat outdoor area surrounded by bars, a bowling alley, restaurants etc. The enclosed area is perfect for concerts and events.
Since it was sort of a last minute decision we missed part of the opening band (The Night Terrors of 1927), but still got to hear some as we found our spots on an upper level railing. It was pretty hard to tell what their style was, but I am finding the more I investigate opening bands after concerts, the more I like them. So I am excited to investigate them too and update you. I can tell you that they love performing.. even on no sleep! They had such energy and you could tell they were so happy to be playing this show.
Not too much later Fitz and the Tantrums came on. KC and I only know a little of their music, but we were so into this concert! They had some really great stage presence and were so much fun to watch! My favorite was watching Noelle Scaggs, the female vocalist and tambourine player dance and sing. She had SO much energy! Hearing more of the music and watching them dance definitely made me want to download new songs to add to my library!
Later that night the keyboardist posted one of my instagram pictures from the show. So cool. :)
