The Head And The Heart Set A Mellow Mood At Kerfuffle Check out thoughts and pics from their performance Kerfuffle!
“… It would have been tough for any act to follow Catfish and the Bottlemen’s adrenaline fueled performance, but the six-piece Seattle collective The Head and The Heart’s gave a solid outing. Even guitarist, Josiah Johnson, admitted to the crowd how impressed they were with Catfish’s set.
One of the two headliners of the night, The Head and The Heart seemed to take some time to warm up at the beginning, taking long transitions between a couple of their first tracks, slowly getting the audience to fall into their groove. By their fourth song, the crowd started to get more engaged with the band and their performance. This proved especially true when they played “Lost In My Mind” from their critically acclaimed self-titled debut from 2011. It was the perfect song for many to raise their lighters in a perfect silhouette as the sun gradually set on the horizon.
It also seemed to help when frontman Johnathan Russell complimented the crowd’s enthusiasm and said how much he “fucking loved” people from Buffalo after playing here once before. From there, Russell and his group played a mix of more songs from their list of their four LP’s, including songs from their 2019 release, Living Mirage.
Always keeping a consistent mix of indie pop to traditional folk to spice up the latter, The Head and The Heart was more of calming set for Friday’s Kerfuffle. It was more about the atmosphere and enjoying the sunset as their sound echoed throughout the outer harbor. Overall, The Head and The Heart was able to salvage their performance that was slightly dry at the beginning. Like I said before, it wasn’t necessarily their fault all things considered. It was a nice change of pace as many got to enjoy the music, drinks, and overall calm…”
