To open the show, Waxahatchee lead vocalist Katie Crutchfield belted “I was losing my mind, I was dancing with death” from the band’s tune “Recite Remorse.” Although the packed crowd wasn’t dancing with death, the jams caused everyone to let their minds run rampant and sway freely to the thick drum beats and impressive vocal harmonies from the five-piece band.The indie rock group visited High Noon Saloon on Thursday as part of their tour to promote their newest album, Out in the Storm, which was released just last week.
