Last night the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco came to life with night two of Maggie Rogers. The Fillmore venue has a rich history of iconic female performers such as Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Carol King, Aretha Franklin and many more. Maggie’s performance last night was another one of those extraordinary performances by a female performer at the venue, that many will continued to talk about.
Opening for Maggie Rogers was the charismatic 19 year old Australian performer, Mallrat. You can check more about her here.
The venue was filled to capacity as the crowd awaited the arrival of Maggie to the stage. The excitement grew as the stage intro track of Abba’s Dancing Queen came on the speakers. The entire venue erupted in song and the energy was infectious. Maggie took the stage and the crowd went wild. She brings to life a carefree nostalgic vibe and as soon as her voice filled the venue, we became fully engaged in her performance. One of the most beautiful and commanding voices out in the music scene today. At one moment, Maggie exclaimed “I Love Music” and it was never truer than in her performance. She traversed the stage with a mix of funk punk energy that magnetized the crowd and invited them to let loose and completely be in the moment.
The devoted crowd sang along and was most likely the loudest crowd I have ever witnessed at the Fillmore. Check out some photos of her set by our Rockin Ryan:
Her set was a true delight and had us in awe at every moment. A few of the highlights of the night were her performances of Light on, Give a Little and FallingWater. You can pick up these songs as they are on her new album, Heard it In a Past Life. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Maggie returned for her encore and blew the crowd away with her acapella performance of Color Song. It brought me tears as the crowd was silent, intent on hearing every note, her voice washing away all the troubles of the world. It was simply dazzling and memorable. She continued with a spectacular cover of The Beatles While My Guitar Gently Weeps. What an amazing night!
If you can catch Maggie out on her tour, I strongly urge to get out to a show. It will be a magical night for you.
