Waxahatchee has become one of my favourite artists over the past several years. I was looking forward to this show more than I thought possible. After seeing the band last year, I immediately wanted to experience Katie's powerful tunes in the live environment again. I knew I wanted to be there for this show so much, camera in tow.
Waxahatchee's Lee's Palace show was one of my favourites of 2017, and her latest album Out in the Storm was one of my favourites of 2017. If you're interested, check out the three songs that I put on my Favourite Songs of 2017 list, and where Out in the Storm placed on my Favourite Albums of 2017 list, along with my shots from Lee's here. Ivy Tripp also cracked the top 10 of my Favourite albums of 2015.
So yes, I'm a bit of a fan.
This show was one of those amazingly moving and uplifting shows that my soul needs in order to feel right. Waxahatchee delivered just what I needed and I know I wasn't alone; there were so many enthusiastic fans filling the entire venue, hanging on Katie's every word and the band's every power chord.
While the set was fantastic, and I think I captured most of the songs below, Katie's acoustic solo songs were a definite highlight. First she performed "La Loose" solo acoustic and then for the encore she performed a cover of Great Thunder's "Chapel of Pines" and "Fade" from Out in the Storm to close out the night.
I can't wait until next time.
Here is a whole bunch of amazing Waxahatchee music:
"Misery over Dispute"
"Never Been Wrong"
"Coast to Coast"
"Peace and Quiet"
"Under A Rock"
"Chapel of Pines" Great Thunder cover
