{RECAP} the lone bellow

Dearest Concert Correspondent Jurg is back recapping her night last Friday with The Lone Bellow at The Hamilton!

The Lone Bellow launched their sold out set with a handful of songs from their newly released album Then Came the Morning. It was a reminder that, as lovely as their recordings are, the band really shines in their live shows. By the time Zach Williams announced "if you know this song, sing along" and launched into "You Never Need Nobody," the crowd eagerly joined in, happy to release some of the energy that had been building since the first guitar strum. Another notable moment came during the emotional cover of Paul Simon's "Slip Slidin' Away," which also inspired a crowd sing along, although this time felt almost involuntary.

Other highlights of the show included my personal favorite off the new album - "Call to War," the peppy "You Don't Love Me Like You Used To" ("Well this song's about losing absolutely all hope...but don't worry - it's in a really fun melody" joked Williams), and when sweetly soft opener Odessa joined the group to perform their own song, "Hummed Low." If you can catch this band at a festival this summer (their whole tour sold out!), do it. You'll thank me later.

Next Up: Look out for Morgan's review of Milky Chance next week!
