On Sunday night at The Cabooze, Butcher Babies were on fire. Butcher Babies exploded with a stunning high-energy set that saw dual vocalists Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey whipping back and forth across the stage, inciting the crowd to roar its appreciation throughout. As they took the stage, Butcher Babies were perhaps one of the strongest metal performance I have seen this year. Performing to a smaller size crowd at The Cabooze, the Butcher Babies treated the crowd to a show worthy of a stadium.
Frontwomen Heidi Shepherd, and Carla Harvey were energetic and performed at top form. Shepherd even sang while leaning into the pit at one point. Their set was heavily weighted in tracks from their latest release, Take It Like A Man, with some tracks from Goliath, and their self-titled EP thrown in for good measure. The crowd reciprocated by singing along and raising horns throughout the whole show. When Heidi Shepherd asked if the crowd wanted to make their way to the stage for high fives, they quickly responded with mass crowd surfing and erupted into a frenzy in front of the stage. It was a show that most won’t soon forget.
