Gig Photos: The Paper Kites at Paradiso Noord, Amsterdam (February 2019)

Hey everyone!

Well, how's it going?
The year is officially three months old and while that super wild, it all still feels new and exciting,
doesn't it?

Have you been to any gigs yet?

Last month our Amsterdam based photographer Saar got to see The Paper Kites live and got the photos and details for us.

Date: 14th February 2019
Venue: Paradiso Noord, Amsterdam (NL)

Support: Tim Dawn

So I had the pleasure to attend The Paper Kites' gig in Amsterdam.
As the crowd slowly walked in, I noticed that the atmosphere was very relaxed and calm, which I did expect from a band like The Paper Kites.
The show was sold out and to my surprise there were a lot of non-Dutch folks attending.

The opening act was the lovely Tim Dawn, who is a Dutch musician that got more recognition from his single "Walking On The Wire". I didn't know who he was when I heard his name, but as soon as he started playing that song, I knew exactly who he was.
A lovely lad with quite a bit of humour and a relaxed vibe all around on stage. Hope to hear more from him soon!

Headliner: The Paper Kites

The first time I listened to The Paper Kites was when they released their album "twelvefour", as the song "Electric Indigo" really got me interested and that's why I wanted to check them out.

At around 9pm the band walked on stage and started playing "Red Light".
Like most of their songs, "Red Light" is a very dreamy, ethereal and harmonious song.

I was quite surprised by how relaxed the audience was with letting me move around in between songs to take photographs.
A band or artist always projects to what the audience is going to be like, so obviously this crowd was easy going and just in for a relaxed evening, dreaming away while listening to songs like "Revelator Eyes", "Too Late", "Woodland" and the well known "Bloom".

On 2nd December 2019, The Paper Kites will play the main room at Paradiso, which I'm most definitely going to attend, because they deserve all the recogntion and bigger venues to play at.
