I had never seen Ingrid live. I always meant to, but she seems to always play on a work night. Last night was a work night as well, but my friend talked me into going.
And I’m glad I did!! Ingrid is so FUNNY. I was enjoying the stage banter more than the actual songs (though she does have some damn, good songs!).
My fave part was the end of the show. Instead of walking down the stairs and waiting for us to clap for the encore, they instead chose to HIDE on the stage and wait…. and just hope we clapped for them. HAHA! I couldn’t stop giggling everytime I would look at their body parts sticking out behind a instrument.
The opener was Matthew_Perryman_Jones. His voice was a little too country for my taste, but I still liked him A LOT. Who could not love a guy that is Katie Herzigs friend, and does a Patty Griffin cover?
Ingrids new songs are solid, and her whole band is entertaining to watch. I highly recommend everyone seeing her at least once.
