One of my most favourite things about being able to be part of Music here in New Zealand is that I get to watch from the shadows as artists grow stronger and get these great opportunities. I experience feelings of pride and joy, which is funny because a bearly know these artists, I just know their work. But every time a see Maxwell perform, I can see how much stronger and more comfortable he is on stage. Oh, Maxwell was opening for Snail Mail if that wasn't clear.
So at the dark, gloomy stage of Galatos played Snail Mail. 19-year-old Lindsey Jordan and her band performed one of the dreamiest indie sets I’ve seen. Unfortunately, due to elements out of Snail Mail's control there were some sound issues. This did not take away from the enjoyment of the show. The crowd and I sang to every song and swaged to their dreamy sound. But I could see the frustration coming through on Lindsey's face as she and the rest of the band battled with the sound crew to change the sound during the set. This is just proof of the talent within Snail Mail that even through adversity, everyone still had a wonderful time and loved every minute of it! Let’s also not forget that the show sold out! So hopefully that means they will be back soon again!
