Photos: Declan McKenna & Chappell Roan @ Music Box, March 29, 2018

I'm catching up on life, so here's another show from March with Declan McKenna and Chappell Roan at Music Box. Darren and I went to this one and the line was around the block when we arrived, but we got in right as Chappell Roan started and you know how people throw around things like "the voice of an angel"? I've never really experienced that, but Chappell was charming and sweet and she had an amazing voice that silenced the often chatty room. You can catch her cover of the Cranberries after the jump. But of course we were there for Declan McKenna. He played at the Irenic a while back, so I thought I knew what to expect with his show and crowd, but in the time since that show, he's certainly grown as a performer and showman, was super glammed up, and the mostly-female crowd kinda lost their shit for anything he did or said. It was super fun, the music was great, and poor Darren survived the time while I was shooting and he was left alone looking like the older creepy man alone at the show. A note, they closed the photo section so the crowd could bump right up to the stage, so all my shots are from side stage or the back of the room.
