Singer/Songwriter, Rock, Pop
Stage Presence: Comfortable, Lively, Dancing
Crowd: Full Room, Engaged
Notes: This was her first full-band show, but they sounded like they had been playing together for a long time. I love that there was a stripped down song in the set where she displayed her roots as a singer/songwriter and got vulnerable with the crowd.

CENTER MUST HOLD
Stage Presence: Primal, Passionate
Crowd: Moshing, Head-banging
Notes: This is a tight band who knows how to make an entrance and be remembered! The lead singer wears black and red face/body paint, and drinks from a horn attached to his belt throughout the set! Worth it.
