Ever since L.A. based rock band Cherry Glazerr released their third full length album, Stuffed & Ready, earlier this year, the band has been non stop touring to promote the record overseas and all throughout the United States.
At their recent stop in Houston on April 26th, Cherry Glazerr was the direct support for Scotland's own mega group CHVRCHES, but they were my main reason for attending this show. The band's music has been on heavy repeat for me for the past few years and I couldn't wait to catch some of their newest tracks live.
Even in broad daylight and sweltering Texas heat, the band ripped through a non-stop 45 minute long set without missing a beat. The band's 12 song set consisted of mainly songs from their latest album as well as a few fan favorites from their previous two efforts. Lead singer, Clementine Creevy, is the definition of a bad-ass front woman. Her sweet, soft vocals paired with her absolutely shredding on the guitar as well as Tabor Allen's excellent drumming skills and Livvy Bennett's bold bass tones made for an absolutely captivating performance. The band kept the stage banter to a minimum, stopping to thank the crowd for getting their earlier enough to check them out then getting right back into the music. Cherry Glazerr closed out their set by shredding through their previous album's title track "Apocalipstick" and leading right into their hit "I Told You I'd Be With The Guys."
It's pretty rare these days to see an opening act that is just as good as the headliner, but when the opener is Cherry Glazerr, you can't ask for much better than that. The band exceeded all of my expectations and definitely made a bunch of new fans in Houston that will be looking forward the the next time they stop through town.
Cherry Glazerr only have a few more dates as support for CHVRCHES but have a ton headlining and festival dates coming up well throughout the year. Check out the band's website and grab tickets if they are coming to a city near you.
