Last night, The Lone Bellow melted me at the Harvester. I’m not going to lie, this will not be a totally objective review. I am a true Lone Bellow fan and I have been since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2013. Their harmonies are hypnotizing, their songs are simple but chilling, and their own special blend of indie-folk is right up my alley. Unfortunately, I had never gotten the opportunity to see them live, until last night, and it was 100% worth the wait to see them (front row) at the Harvester.
If you haven’t visited the Harvester, get to Rocky Mount immediately. The sound was perfect, even sitting about 6 feet from the front speaker. I don’t know how they do it, but every time I see a show there, it seems like the acoustics keep getting better and better. Every show feels intimate, a feeling shared by Lone Bellow leader singer, Zach Williams, who commented, “I like this place. It feels like we’re playing in a living room.”
