Sarah and I don’t really go out that much, but this was our second concert in as many weeks. I’m pretty sure that we deserve a medal, or at least a minor commendation, for that level of non-hermitude… right?
Anyways, we had a blast at Angels and Airwaves. We’d already bought Delta Rae tickets a while back, but having just had such a good time at another concert doubled us down for this one – We both love Delta Rae, and the last time we saw them in concert was glorious, so we were psyched for this one.
The Douglas Fir Lounge – upstairs it’s a very 70s-ish lounge. Walking to the bathroom there, I expected to see disco balls, bell bottom pants, and a lounge lizard or two. Maybe afros?
But downstairs, it was awesome. A small enclosed space with great acoustics, log-cabin style walls, and high ceilings… but most importantly it only held maybe 200 people, and probably less. Sarah and I were second-row, standing room only, getting to rock out nearly on stage with the band. Not a bad setup, not at all.
The show itself was amazing – Like Angels and Airwaves, Delta Rae knows how to put on a show. But unlike Tom’s “unique” stage presence, Delta Rae led a perfectly coordinated dance of a concert. They’re clearly all artists who take their stage presence extremely seriously, and put a huge amount of work into creating a specific vibe and ambiance. Everything was intentional, perfectly balanced, and exactly on time. It was amazing – like a perfect dance.
We had a great time. Enjoy the pictures! We even commandeered a set list off the stage after the concert was over!
