Photos: Bishop Briggs, Matt Maeson at The Observatory, May 5, 2018

Two months seems to be my pace of uploading photos these days. I'm sorry for that, but I'm my own worst critic, I guess. These photos are from the sold out Bishop Briggs and Matt Maeson show at the Observatory on Cinco de Mayo. It was a particularly fun day...we walked to the North Park Fiesta (though it was kind of a bust, Nova got to do free pony rides around a parking lot). We had dinner at El Comal who were understandably slammed, so I got about three bites of my dinner before I had to ditch them to get to the show, running the few blocks of University to get there.

It was my first time catching Bishop. I think her other time in town was X-Fest and maybe another I missed, so I didn't have any expectations, but I'd been on a powerful woman kick lately, and she is certainly that. She enters the stage like a boxer, with her single "White Flag," and never lets up. I love an artist who is incredibly intense while singing, or with Bishop, practically running laps from one wing of the stage to the other, then being softspoken, humble, appreciative and consumed in the adoration of her fans. It was also her sister's birthday, so she let the crowd in a singalong, laughed, joked, and performed a perfect show. More photos, including opener Matt Maeson, are after the jump.
