At this show, live music finally felt like normal again. Attending my first sold out show at Bowery Ballroom, and one of my first in recent years, was a special experience. I was there early, of course, to get comfortable with the new crowd and the venue, and as the night continued, the people just kept coming. The venue’s first floor, which consists of no seating, was so packed I could barely move through it. The fans of this band were so kind, and they were all so excited to be crammed together with a bunch of others who love Wolf Alice. Many people were eagerly talking to me while waiting for the show to start. It was fun trying to find spaces to cram into just to get a good shot. I was between people’s heads, above the stage, trying to find a good angle between the bars of the stairs. This frantic energy combined with the love I saw on the faces of the people next to me made me feel so good, so I can only imagine how the band felt. The room was truly alive. This was only their first of two sold-out nights at Bowery Ballroom. It was a night I’m glad to have been a part of and I hope everyone gets the chance to experience their shows live.
