Last night was definately epic. If you read my last post, I saw Eric Church the night before and let me tell you, it was weak and I left livid. Had to be at work at 8am and by 2pm I was crash and burn. Through the infamous @Katelvsnyy, I was introduced to Kerri Leigh via Twitter and after youtubing her (That does sound kind of dirty, I apologize in advance Kerri) I was impressed with her vocals enough to agree to go see her in action live.
Now, remember, I was a zombie by 2pm and her show wasn’t until 9pm at The Bitter End down in the West Village. I didn’t want to do the enery drink thing, so after I got off work at 5pm, I went to BK to see my friends Reckless Addicts and crashed on their bed until 7:30pm. (Trust me, all this background will get me to the point lol). After dragging myself up and heading back down to the city, my entourage of 3 canceled on me. So, now I had to stay awake, make it to the venue, and pay enough attention to blog about it the next day all by my lonesome.
When I got to The Bitter End, Drew Citron was performing and while the young lady is extremely talented, she was making my fellow barmen and I extemely sleepy. The guy next to me asked if I knew them and when I said no, he replied ” Oh good, I hope the next act is a bit more upbeat because I am thinking about calling it quits. This girl put me to bed”. I convinced him to stay and prayed that Kerri Leigh would deliver and not have me sneaking out the back hiding from this guy….
….AND BOY OH BOY DID SHE DELIVER! Kerri Leigh is a beautiful young woman with a powerful voice and an amazing stage presence. She sang and sang and danced and rocked and her band was just as amazing as her voice. I cannot believe she isn’t signed to any major record label yet, but mark my words people, Kerri Leigh WILL BE. Her energy made me forget how tired I was and her music is the antidote to zombieism. Guess they should have just played her music in Resident Evil and everyone would have returned to normal.
By the end of her set, I was wide awake and ready to party! I got to speak with her briefly after the show and what made the night is that as beautiful as she is on the outside (and the woman is smoking people), she is just as beautiful on the inside. Check her out on Twitter @Kerrileighmusic and follow her so you can be at her next show.
YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT on this young woman who is representing country music OFFICIAL! And I want to personally thank Miss Kerri Leigh. You definatley ROCKED US OUT.

Remember the name. She is a Rockstar and she won’t let you forget it.

Love and Respect,
