The Mansion in My Mind
December 14, 2017 The Cobalt Concert Photography by: Daniel W Young and Claudia Wyler
“Let me tell you, let me tell you, let me tell you this”… Little Destroyer is a force to be reckoned with and each time I get an opportunity to see them live I pounce on it- and without fail Allie, Chris and Michael erupt leaving me grasping on to the stratosphere for dear life.
So much love for this band… so much respect. It isn’t just that their songs grab me, it isn’t just the words in the music that ring with me, it isn’t just how freaking mind-blowingly energetic their live performance is, it isn’t just the sweet sentimentality that shines through in their eyes and smiles… but it is also the fact that they are real. True. Honest. Not just fake smiley faces.
“Like on stage playing, there is nothing like that for me. That is when I am at home. Honestly, whatever alter-ego, or whatever other thing exists in me, is in that moment. Like a conduit. I am transported. Because generally in my life I am just very mellow, pretty chill, but on stage I am a savage.” ~ Allie Sheldan
We still have more photos to come from Claudia Wyler as well as a full review, but for now you can see Daniel’s photos below as well as read our interview last year with Allie and photos from their Concerts at the Pier show in White Rock.
