I had the absolute greatest time last night! My friends and I were lucky enough to go see The Oh Hellos at the Troubadour. And they did not disappoint.
We started the night with a trip to In-n-Out burger (my first time! The burger was delicious, the fries less so. Definitely know to avoid them for next time) and headed into the city to go to the Troubadour. It was such a cool space to see a band – a relatively large room but small enough that there wasn’t a bad view in the house. Luckily my friends and I were right up against the stage, which was incredible!
The opening band was The Collection, which I had never heard of before. Usually I’m not really into opening bands (I mostly spend the time thinking about how my feet hurt when they perform) but the Collection was amazing from start to finish. Every single person in the band performed four instruments and at one point a didgeridoo appeared! They are definitely on my radar now and everyone should go check out their new album Ars Moriendi. I’ve been listening to it non-stop since last night.
By far the highlight of the night was The Oh Hellos. They are a brother-sister band from Texas, and their sound is this incredible indie-folk-rock mash up. I was so pumped when I heard that they were performing in the Troubadour because I’ve been obsessed with their music since Through the Deep, Dark Valley came out. AND THEY WERE AMAZING. Everyone in the band had this amazing energy and since the venue was so small the crowd was just crazy and fed off of each other. Everyone was singing along and stomping and cheering. I’ve literally never had a better concert experience in my life! They also debuted a new song and announced that they are putting out a new album!! Which is INCREDIBLE and I am so excited to hear how their sound evolves in the next installment.
After the show we walked around and went for milkshakes, which was the perfect end to a fantastic evening. I’m absolutely going to go back to the Troubadour and I’m looking forward to it!
Here’s hoping everyone has an amazing weekend!
