What a turn out for ZZ Ward in Sacramento! The Assembly was pretty packed tonight. I had never heard of her. I heard a song a month ago, that had a blues-rock feel to it, then it had a little hip-hop to it as well. I figured I would go to the show try to get some photos but realized I had something going on that same night. As the day came closer, the evening was open, and I found myself at the show.
She was surprised with the turn out, she said from stage. I was surprised to see so many kids. Also surprising was a lot of couples dancing in the back. It was a party all over the place. She had never played and has never been to Sacramento. Her San Francisco date was sold out.
She is a good singer, and awesome lyricist. I dont listen to lyrics a whole lot, but when its some bluesy music being played, the lyrics usually have a story to tell, so I was listening to her, and watching her guitarist kill it. The crowd were completely receptive to her, especially when she broke out the harmonica.
When she comes back, her show just might sell out.
