    saw Lorde last night at the Greek 

    lordeshe’s tremendous. i shoulda seen her both nights.

    there was a time not that long ago where i listened to Lorde every morning as i showered for 6 months straight.

    never the same song, always different ones.

    she intrigues me how she can be so mature for her age (17). and yet so much about her lyrics are about kid stuff

    going to the tennis courts

    sitting in the back seat of the car looking at houses

    being told by the djs what to do with her hands

    in concert she looks down at the ground alot and hides her face with her hair

    she jerks around like that dude from radiohead and angus from ac/dc

    she seems to be having issues with stage fright and total excitement that shes one of the biggest stars in the world

    without having to show off her body or date the cute boy from the huge movie.

    its interesting that taylor swift wants to be besties with her because theyre totally opposite live

    taylor has all the rockstar poses and dancers and party favors and pianos and guitars

    lorde just gets up there and starts singing her sad songs in long robes and old lady gowns

    puts her head down and convulses during the musical parts.

    she addressed the crowd just once in a little convo where she said how a year ago she was new to LA

    and playing in far smaller venues, but everyone was super nice and supportive to her and now a year later

    shes sold out two nights at the Greek.

    she seemed legit impressed and humbled by it.

    so much so that i bought two bootleg tshirts.
