According to front-woman, Syd, Seattle is one of her favorite cities. Given the rowdy crowd that assembled for the show, which was part of the Los Angeles’ group’s Hive Mind Tour, I’m not surprised. Uniformed in tour merch and draped in Meet and Greet lanyards, attendees felt like family and seemed prepared to make the night unlike any other.
For the tour, the Internet is supported by fellow L.A. trio Moonchild which felt like a match made in heaven. Both are soul-driven bands and both cause audiences to shun standing still in favor of moving their body in time with the music.
As performers, the Internet’s stage presence was incredibly infectious as well. They rarely wore anything less than a smile, and every time Syd or guitarist Steve Lacy broke from the mic to bust a move, the crowd matched their enthusiasm.
Here are a few of my favorite shots.
