I went to a Gnash concert. A what? The guy who sings I hate, I love you. Ohhh yeah that guy.
Gnash Is so much more than that song, it's a good song don't get me wrong, it's just that the dudes got three albums of music that your heart just needs to listen to. On November 1st, we dragged our tired asses out of bed and went to the Legendary Roxy Theater in West Hollywood, which if you didn't know already is not that big, it's quite small actually so that was a bonus. Gnash brought an arsenal of talented friends with him on this tour. His DJ Jon was a friendly persona and my sister loved his overalls. Triangle Park played a few songs, which is one guy who is Gnash's pianist. Nothing too special but the dude seemed nice, like your friend's brother who occasionally talks to you nice. Wren was next in the lineup and she was a talented girl who could play the electric guitar, which is basically my spirit animal, her voice was delicate yet domineering. I'll be on the look out for her. Quin was after and her specialty was Galactica, which is the title of her album and a style of music? I'm not completely sure but man it was enjoyable. I'd listen to more Quin any day. Last in the opener line up was Goody Grace. Goody is a proud Canadian lad who has a raspy voice and skilled guitar playing. What you never heard of him? Well you need to, this guy is talented as hell and as amazing as Gnash himself. I picture Goody Grace as Gnash's right hand man, his + 1, his creative buddy. Listen to "Memories" and "Two Shots." His voice will get you every time, PS It doesn't match his body.
Finally it was time for GNASH! This was one of their last shows in the tour and they were ending in his home town of Los Angeles. It was a big deal for him, his parents were there for Christ Sake, it was adorable. Dude showed up on stage with incense, incense! I was pumped. Because his music is typically on the slower side, they decided to kind of remix them with a more crowd concert friendly beat. I and no one else there were expecting that. The downside of this concert was the crowd. Out of all of Los Angeles we got stuck with the squares. It was like pulling teeth in order to get them to participate. It made me mad so it definitely made him mad. Gnash cast that all aside and continued with his marvelous show. This guy brought out every person that was featured on his songs, every single one including Jesse Rutherford from The Neighbourhood, MAX, and Olivia O'Brien! That is pretty damn cool. He even played some new stuff that sounds promising. Altogether, knowing what I know now, I would tell anyone who was contemplating going to go but just know that the music will not be exactly the same as what's on ITunes. The best part about the whole thing was the cathartic release of emotions and that release of adrenaline you get when you scream out his lyrics with him. Gnash is also all about family, that's why he incorporates them on everything he does. It's admirable, especially in a day and age where people will unfollow friends who don't follow back immediately. Never change Gnash, stay the giver and creator you are. I'll be at another show real soon.
