Fleet Foxes came to Charleston!! Truth be told, most of my favorite artists skip over Charleston to go to bigger cities like Charlotte and Atlanta, so it was amazing to only drive 20 minutes to get to the concert instead of the usual 4-5 hours.
This will be my third time seeing them in concert, the past two times were at the Merriweather Post Pavillion in MD and the Red Rock Amphitheater in CO. I also got to see Robin Pecknold at the 9:30 Club in DC during his Gene Clark No Other tour. And yet, even though I have seen them performing multiple times, each concert is so unique, exhilarating, and beautifully done. This time, he was performing at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center with Natalie Prass, another great upcoming artist. Check out one of my favorite songs of hers here. Her band was all smiles throughout the set and you could tell she was so excited to share her music with the filled venue!
Note: All photos were taken by my handy little point and shoot, the Fujifilm X100F! 🙂
They had a great energy, so much fun! They had this unique fusion of retro funk and Natalie’s soulful voice.
And then I was blown away with how much material Fleet Foxes fit into one concert. All these songs ranging over their albums, with older songs and newer seamlessly flowing into each other. Check out the set list here. Robin Pecknold was just killing it with his voice and everyone was so effortlessly talented and in sync. Plus, the lighting/background just fit so perfectly with each song. One of the best concerts of my lifetime, love ya Fleet Foxes! Please visit Charleston again!!
