It’s almost the end of Fletcherof the American tour, and it’s going well. Many of his shows sell out, thanks to the teenage fanbase…and the Fine Line Music Café show in Minneapolis on Saturday night is no exception. Fans showed up early and helped sell the venue.
the New York one Julia Wolf (a.k.a WOLF), opened the show. We last mentioned that she released her debut EP Daughters of Purgatory…so most of the songs played were taken from the first album, including “Falling In Love” and “In My Way”.
She also had a few new songs that have yet to be released. One of those songs, which I’ll call “Get Off My D**k” (based on a partial setlist she posted on her Facebook page), was written after being lifted by a record label. Let me explain, you see, a major label expressed interest in her music, so they scheduled a meeting with her in person, in Los Angeles. When the day of the reunion arrived, Julia Wolf waited and waited, and realized that the label wasn’t going to show up. She never explained what happened, but I just felt like the label just forgot about it or something. I guess something good came out of it, we got a song out of it.
Wolf seemed at ease on stage, with his live drummer. The guitar music may have come from a playback loop or a DJ, which I didn’t see on stage at my house. We’ve seen new bands, and sometimes you can tell they’re not quite ready for the stage…but seeing Wolf play, you can tell it’s not his first rodeo. It’s a feat, as Wolf explained on stage that she grew up super shy. She never spoke, she was passive and she let people walk all over her. Something happened, now she’s outspoken, she’ll speak her mind, she’ll stand up and fight! Above all, she expresses her opinion and point of view through her songs. This is how she expresses her inner feelings.
Hopefully this post will inspire other teenage girls at the concert, hearing Wolf tell his story.
As for Fletcher (Cari Fletcher), she started releasing her music in 2016 (with Finding Fletcher), but her first big hit was a song called “Undrunk” in 2019. The single hit the Billboard Hot 100 and Spotify‘s #1 Viral Chart. Naturally, radio stations started picking up the song, and overnight the song was the fastest rising song on pop radio.
She started her set with “girls girls girls”, a song that reused a line of Katy Perry“I kissed a girl”. It sets the tone that she is a member of the LGBTQ+ community. If you weren’t sure, his last EP The S(ex) bands really talks about his relationship with famous YouTuber Shannon Beveridge.
She has a very strong fanbase, almost every song, you can hear her fans singing the lyrics. As you can see in the photos, she literally lets her fans finish the chorus.
Fletcher’s Last The S(ex) bands is available now on Capitol Records.
