After a few months of touring, Wallows finally made it home to play two sold-out nights at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Similarly, attending night one was a homecoming of my own, as it was my first show back in LA after a grueling couple of months in New York. It was a great experience to see the band for the first time at a hometown show, especially since their music has always reminded me of California. Supported by Slow Hollows, Wallows played an incredible show filled with exciting moments and explosive energy. Continue Reading

Though I was an hour early to the venue, I was one of the last people to enter when doors opened at 7:00pm. I wonder if those people who had waited all day for their perfect places were disappointed that they had to wait there through not one but two opening acts before The Neighbourhood came on.

Drained after a long week, I sat on the bus thinking about the next four hours and what was to come. The facts: Slow Hollows was playing at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY. Doors, 8 pm. On the bus, the silence was peaceful yet deafening. Just me, a woman in her mid-thirties or early forties, and the bus driver. 7 pm on a Friday night. En route, a wave of nerves hit me.
