Not having listened to much of her material before the show, there were 2 Meg Myers facts I was not ready for 1 – she’s tiny (at 5’3 not exactly tiny but a step down from her larger than life presence in videos) 2 – she can rock HARD! On tour to support her just released debut full length album “Sorry” Meg Myers played the packed Fine Line Music Cafe Saturday Night. Check out opener Jarryd James review and interview HERE.
Just before Myers came on stage, the crowd did a cute back and forth chant: Meg……..Myers. Once she took the state, she kicked her set off with 2 songs from Sorry and then switched gears to the rocky version of Go. During Go’s chorus she stomped around the stage with an energy that would have been right at home in a hardcore band. I was putting away my camera gear during Desire (3 song rule for photographers) towards the back of the venue not paying attention to the stage and noticed the heavy base line that dominated the song (in a very good way). I looked up and it was Myers rocking the bass – very cool to see. The set continued at fast peace with a good mix of her new and older material. Fan favorite of course was her hit single “Sorry”.
Overall a great show that blew any misconceptions I had about Meg Myers (Pop Princess) right out of the water.
