Hirie’s “Dreamer” Tour hits Austin at Stubb’s Indoors (with Kash’d Out and Rdgldgrn)

Stubbs indoors is a smaller venue with a small patio directly overlooking the stage, a pool table room, an outdoors area where merch could be found. While there was room for everyone, we were all crowded together in front of the stage. Although this hasn’t been Hirie’s first time playing Stubbs Indoors- I do hope it will be the last, because they deserve the bigger stage right next door that is the Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheatre.

To see how far this band has come overwhelms me with joy and pride. When I first discovered Hirie in 2015, they hadn’t even gone on a headlining tour, and now here they are selling out shows while they tour their second full length studio album, Dreamer.

Part of the reason I try to cover this band as much as I can is because I believe everyone should know who they are and what they represent. If you haven’t heard the album “Dreamer”, then you need to. Lead singer, Trish, gets deep and personal all the while keeping things fun and light. Their fanbase goes hard for them, and the reason is because they keep it real. On stage, off stage, and through the music. If you’ve ever felt like you’re alone, just know Hirie exists.

The show openers were Kash’d Out- a small reggae band from Orlando, Fl. who were prepared to show the Austin crowd what they bring to the table, and the crowd was loving it. There were a lot of people who already knew their music and were happily singing along. They successfully pumped up the crowd with their dance moves and energy, and set the tone for the night. Great openers.

Rdgldgrn (pronounced Red, gold, green) came on after and dominated the stage. I’ve seen them maybe twice before, but almost forgot how heavy their stage presence is. These guys know how to put on a show, seriously. From contagious dance moves, to playing games with the crowd, and even jumping into the crowd- while still performing! Rdgldgrn knows what they’re doing, and does it very well. If you like live music, you have to go see these guys. Even if you don’t like live music, they would be the ones to change your mind.

Hirie hit the stage at 11:30pm- but before that, their entire team was backstage in a pre-show huddle. It was a beautiful thing to watch, and not something I see very often. It was a kind reminder that every single person involved in “Hirie” matters, especially their fans. This is a band who has worked so hard and overcome so much to be able to tour and play for reggae lovers. Their hard work has paid off and made them a name that deserves to headline.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to see them play in Oregon, California, and Texas- and I must say their shows have a vibe that gives me nostalgia when it’s over. The music is beautiful, the performance is full of love and energy, and the crowd is full of people who just want to have a good time and forget about regular life for a night. It was no different in Austin. We were all ready to dance with Hirie by the time their set started. As always, they put so much into their performances, so it’s only fair that the crowd give them just as much back. At one point lead singer, Trish, was alone on stage with a guitar doing an acoustic cover to “I’m Messed Up” off the new album “Dreamer” and everyone sang along. It could have been her voice, the many voices in the crowd, the lighting, the message of the song, or everything combined but I got very emotional during this performance. If their shows do anything for you, it’s probably make you feel something. After the show Trish hung out at the Hirie merch booth and met/hugged/took photos with anyone who wanted to. There are very few performers who still do this and shines light on her character and the integrity of the band. The night was nothing short of a dream- to myself and many others.
