Maisie Peters played in Washington D.C. at Howard Theatre on Saturday, March 12th as a part of her headline tour for her debut album, You Signed Up For This.
Jonah Kagen kicked off the show and the crowd loved him. He mentioned how his grandparents were attending the show and even told the classic “interrupting cow” knock-knock joke. His music and humor were great and I’m excited to see where he goes from here.
Maisie came on stage with such fire and I was definitely in awe. Her songs sung live bring such amazing energy that is so different from her studio versions in the best way. She’s energetic, constantly dancing, smiling, and lovingly interacting with the crowd. She spoke to someone in the crowd who had recently gotten broken up with and had the crowd “boo” him for breaking her heart and dedicated her song “Sad Girl Summer” to her. Personally, that song was my favorite to hear live from Maisie.
One cool thing about this show was that it was originally supposed to be at Union Stage, an 850 capacity venue. It was moved to Howard Theatre, a 1250 capacity venue, and was still completely packed and sold out.
If you have the chance to see Maisie Peters live on this tour I’d definitely recommend!
