The show was held at the Theater of Living Arts, a nice intimate venue conveniently located on South street. Although the place was easy to get to via public transportation or car, there was a matter of parking that became an issue if you drove. There was no parking lot in the area so you were left to find parking on the street which can be difficult. The staff seemed nice and was very helpful to anyone who needed assistance.
Once you were inside there was a small area for bathrooms and souvenirs, then the snack bar for some nonalcoholic refreshments. There was the option to sit upstairs and enjoy from a vantage point or stand close to the stage. Although the place wasn’t full but there was enough to create a decent crowd and the artists to command it.
The opening act, Patrick Martin, came out with blazing energy to start the show despite his admitted assumption that the crowd wouldn’t know his music. He later found out just how much it didn’t really matter fans roared out screams and affections during his acapella ballads while the musical assists from the drummer and guitarist began to join in. By the time Patrick’s set was through and he came back out to sign autographs and take pictures they were more than ready and warmed up for Grace
After a brief intermission, Grace made her entrance to the stage. Fans screamed with excitement as she performed through her catalogue of hits. Her fans of all ages seemed to have enjoyed themselves. With the lightshow matching the energy radiating from the stage, even if you didn’t know the words you were sure to have a good time. Grace also payed tribute to her personal favorites Billy Joel and Rex Orange County during her set. She wrapped up the show by premiering new music on a soon to be released EP dropping in the near future. Although the show went a bit over time, it still ended at a decent time with the fans satisfied.
