Sidney Gish 7/30Jul 31, 2019
On July 30th, the brilliantSidney Gish performed at Fallout Urban Art Center in South Minneapolis, along with local openers Family Reunion and Miloe. The room was packed full of fans of all ages eager to see their favorite artists. Family Reunion and Miloe performed short and sweet sets, bringing tons of energy to the stage. Their music was the perfect way to start out the night.
When Sidney Gish took the stage, she spoke of the excitement she felt to be visiting Minneapolis for the first time. Following the wonderful local openers, she seemed eager to perform. Following the accomplishment of a 7.7 rating from Pitchfork for her 2017 album No Dogs Allowed at 22 years old, Sidney Gish's fan base has only grown since then. On this particular Tuesday night, she mainly played songs off No Dogs Allowed, as well as a couple from Ed Buys Houses and her first EP Presumably Dead. All of her songs elicited a relaxed atmosphere and the audience was softly singing along to every track.
To see such a talented artist perform up close was truly a treat - all of Gish’s songs were powerful, yet performed with an air of effortlessness. Highlights from last night’s setlist included Sin Triangle, I Eat Salads Now, Where The Sidewalk Ends and Sophisticated Space. Everyone in the audience seemed to be having a fun evening, and the space felt relaxed and comfortable. After playing an encore that wrapped up the night beautifully, Gish hung around for a while taking photos and talking with fans. She was very sweet and generous with her time- it was a pleasure to hear her answer questions and crack jokes.
Overall, an excellent night of music from Sidney Gish. Hopefully she enjoyed her first visit to Minneapolis, this reviewer can’t wait to see her again on her next stop through town.
