I have to say, I had an awesome time at the Houston Press Music Awards! We got to see Trae Tha Truth, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, and Matt and Kim! Trae was opening the Bud Light Stage and seemed to have a very large following.
Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights were incredible. I had never heard of them, but I was very impressed with them. They are based out of Dallas and they very much look the part of a jam/ indie alt 70’s band! I actually got to speak with one of the band members, Emotion Jones, and she was incredibly accommodating and informative. If these guys are playing near you, you should definitely check them out!
The headliners, of course, were Matt and Kim and they were incredible! Kim came onto the stage with a smile and 45+ minutes later when their set was over, I don’t think that her smile left once! They had a ton of energy and really got the crowd involved (see below for the Bizmarkee “Just a Friend” sing-a-long). Well worth the long day in the heat for such a fantastic and thoroughly impressive live show! Not only did they hype the fans by throwing balloons out into the crowd to go along with their set, but they took the time after the show to hop the fence and do an impromptu ‘meet and greet’!
