The Last Dinner Party played their first ever show in Minnesota at First Ave.  They are a relevantly new band composed of previous female stage musicians. Starting in 2021 they soon got a record label and got to recording their first album. Once they started releasing singles off their upcoming album they blew up pretty quickly. Appealing to people of all ages and more specifically people who like bands like Boygenius, Wet Leg and Lana Del Rey. Their sound definitely had a very powerful and passionate drive behind it. It was the first time being at First Ave since they upgraded their PA system and it sounded absolutely perfect. Nothing was too loud but still extremely clear. When I was in the pit I could feel a lot of love from the lead singer (Abigail Morris). She is the only one though that gave any sort of emotion during their set which never makes me enjoy the show as much as I would if I could tell that every one of the band members was into it. All in all though it definitely was a good show to see. I just would have enjoyed a bit more energy from the other band members and not be so heavily reliant on the lead singer for that. With all that said if they did come back I would go see them again.
