I’m just going to say right off the bat Indigo de Souza was quite the disappointment. If you’re not familiar, Indigo de Souza is an indie artist that plays what I like to consider “sad girl” music. With that being said it would be understandable that the show might come off a bit somber and chill. It was neither of those, it was quite sad. It really seemed like they were exhausted and really had no interest in playing the show. Being music about hard times and getting through trauma I expected to see some passion and power behind the words she was singing. I didn’t feel an ounce of that. Just going through the motions and trying to get to the end. The only real shining light was their bass player who actually looked like he was having a good time. Like if you were to watch the Tiny Desk concert for NPR she just really seemed like she was into and singing with some amount of passion. Also it being Valentine’s Day I totally expected her to do some sort of crowd work pertaining to that seeing that a good amount of her songs are about love and relationships. All in all I was not happy with the performance.
