Good morning and happy friday, hoddlers.
For those of you who follow along with Fitzie’s track of the day, you may have noticed female artists were selected every day. That’s because your hoddler-in-chief has been celebrating women in music all week.
And there is no more fitting way to cap this celebration than with some live music thoughts. That’s right, hoddlers: Your hoddler-in-chief went to see Haim LIVE at a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday!
I’ve rambled on before about Haim and The Steps. And in following the great musical tradition of releasing an iconic third album, Haim released Women in Music Pt III in 2020. The album debuted at No. 1 in the UK and peaked at No. 3 in the US.
But Haim were robbed of their victory lap. Two years later they finally emerged as the premiere act in rock music. Haim’s show at Madison Square Garden felt less like a concert and more like a shared celebration in a band’s long-overdue climb to the top of music.
