Meg Myers: The Queen of Darkness
The alt-rock diva grabbed ahold of the Hawthorne with an equally dark and beautiful headlining set alongside opener Wild Party.
Meg Myers made a sleek transition from opener to headliner at the Hawthorne Theatre on Tuesday, June 2. When Foster The People hit the Roseland in May of last year, Myers both impressed and slightly scared concertgoers with her dark stage presence and angsty energy.
With the Hawthorne under her control, she delivered just as strong of a set as she did then by performing tracks off of her two EPs, as well as the new single “Sorry” (listen below). With plenty of angry screams mixed with hauntingly beautiful vocals, Myers had the crowd captivated for the entire set, proving herself to be the true Queen of Darkness.
San Antonio natives Wild Party started off the evening with a set of upbeat power-pop. The audience was all over their set, some seeming to have come to the show solely for them. Their debut album, Phantom Pop, dropped last October and made up most of their setlist. BS
