Pela! What a blast we had!
The show started with a small crowd, surprising us a bit, but as the set went on Pela added more fans for sure. Their set did not differ hugely from when I caught them in NYC last year, which was fine with me and a bit of a pleasant surprise that they delivered that same level of hometown energy when they played in the hot sun of Washington state in the middle of the day.
Tenement Teeth stole the show, and they closed with a blistering version of Cavalry and a cover of the Pixies' Holiday. The boys looked thrilled to be there, grinning wide and snapping shots of the crowd. Thanks for the fun Pela, we had to take a nap on a grassy knoll after that set!
