I had never been to Eddie's Attic before going to see Trevor Hall, and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. People who had been there before told me it would be small, but I never expected just how small it would be. Trevor's show ended up selling out, and I really enjoyed the venue more than I originally thought I would. It was small to the point where it was intimate, but not over-crowded. It was like no matter where you stood in the room, you were close to the stage and could see the performer.
Tubby Love, a Georgia native, was first up. I had never heard of him before, but I wasn't disappointed. His songs were catchy and upbeat, and even though his performance was short, it was a great opener and it really set the mood for the night as a good one.
Cas Haley performed after Tubby, and it was really cool to me that he opened for Trevor Hall on this tour because the first time that I went to a Trevor Hall concert, he also opened. I'm not an avid listener of his music, but his performance was also really good, despite it being short. He had Doug Smith and Brian Lang, who are Trevor's drum and bass players, come up and play with him.
Finally, it was time for Trevor Hall. The crowd was really laid-back for the most part, but when Trevor got on stage, everyone went insane. He played old crowd favorites, such as "Well I Say...," "Om Shakti Om," "The Lime Tree," and "Unity." From his newest album, Chapter of the Forest, I was most excited to hear him play "Obsidian," "The Promised Land," and "Wish Man." He played "Te Amo" and "Good Rain" from his previous album, Everything Everytime Everywhere, which was cool because I have not heard him play either of those songs the past two times that I've seen him. Trevor put on a great performance, he engaged the crowd by talking about his Clash of Clans addiction and giving the backstory to his song, "Wish Man." After his performance was over, he came back for one more song, and instead of coming back to play on the stage, he played "O Haleakala" in the middle of the crowd. Everyone ended up singing along, and it was so magical to feel so connected to so many strangers through a song.
This was my third time seeing Trevor Hall, and he never disappoints. His voice is just as incredible live, and his band is always entertaining. I would definitely go see him again, and would recommend anyone else to. I would give the entire show a 10/10.
