Adventurous Day Part 2!

After a traffic-y jaunt from DC to Columbia, Mom and I got to Merriweather around 630. She took off for home, but Dad and I grabbed some food from the mall and found a decent spot in the parking garage across the street from Merriweather. We chilled for a little while, wandered over around 7, and chilled for a while, aware that some inclement weather was incoming.

There was only one opening group - The Antlers, who I have never heard anything by, but have heard of. They were supposed to start at 8 and Hozier as suppoer to start at 9. However, at 745, someone came out and announced that the Antlers would play early and that after, as the storms were rolling in, they'd go on rain delay. They said that anyone under the pavillion (us, luckily) should stay put in their seats, but that anyone on the lawn should go back to their cars until they gave the all clear and then come back in. Sure enough, the Antlers played from 7:50 to 8:10 and then it started storming. It was pretty crazy for a while, some gusty winds, some heavy downpours, lots of thunder and lightning. Unfortunately, none of the storming did much to alleviate the obnoxious humidity.

Anyway, at 915, when things were starting to clear up a bit, they announced that Hozier would be starting at 935, so 20 more minutes to kill. Don't think it ever actually stopped raining, though.

He played a pretty cool set - only one song I wanted didn't get played and looking at past setlists, it appears that it doesn't usually (In The Woods Somewhere). Anyhow, he played: Angel of Small Death & The Codeine Scene, From Eden, Jackie & Wilson, To Be Alone - during that one, he tried to get people to echo the oh's in small bits, but everyone just kept doing the whole thing, lol - Someone New, It Will Come Back, In A Week, Illinois Blues (Skip James cover), Like Real People Do, Arsonist's Lullaby, Sedated, and Take Me To Church. Encored with Cherry Wine, Problem (Arianna Grande cover), and ended with Work Song at 11.

Got soaked on the way out, had a rainy drive home.

Dad and I were worried about pictures at first, because the lighting for the Antlers wasn't spectacular, but the lights for Hozier resulted in some pretty awesome pictures, as did the relatively mellow nature of the concert. We both got some great shots.
