Kid Quill brings the energy to NYC.

Kid Quill brings the energy to NYC. The sold-out Brooklyn stop on the “Good People” Tour had support from the artist Pertinence who opened with a fantastic set. The venue “Elsewhere” made for an intimate, but energetic concert.

Pertinence

To be frank, I found out who the opener at this show was when I walked in the door. The venue “Elsewhere” is tiny and I had low expectations for the energy level of the audience. Pertinence immediately proved me wrong with his performance. This artist’s energy is on fire. He gets his crowd hyped so quickly and is quite simply a phenomenal entertainer. Pertinence uses call and response in a lot of his songs which gets the crowd involved and excited to be a part of the show. He is loaded with charisma and overall a fun time, making for a 10/10 performance. 

Kid Quill

Kid Quill jumped onstage with some New York pride by wearing a Mets hat that he had gotten at a game the day before. Mitch (as his fans call him – short for his first name Mitchell) was supported at the NYC concert by an onstage DJ. Throughout the show, the DJ played seemingly random snippets from various non-Kid Quill songs. I was curious as to how Smash Mouth’s All-Star, the Scooby Doo theme song, and Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts related to a Kid Quill concert, but Mitch explained that they’d been having a contest among the tour crew to see which nostalgic song would get the best crowd reaction. The crowd was super into it and sang their hearts out for their choice song. It was definitely a toss-up between All-Star and What’s New, Scooby-Doo? 

The small NYC venue made for an intimate show, some of us standing just inches away from Mitch, making it feel like we were hanging out with him as opposed to watching him perform. Mitch contributed to this feeling by making an effort to connect with his fans whether it be coming down to their eye level and singing straight at them, taking outreached phones to grab selfies, or asking audience members’ names and shaking hands if they called out support that he appreciated. The audience had great energy and it seemed like every single person there was a massive fan of Kid Quill not just because they liked his music, but because they supported the man himself. Mitch jumped off stage and joined the crowd for a mosh pit during one song and befriended a fan in the pit who he then shouted out by name when he returned to the stage. Mitch explained that he isn’t signed to a record label at the moment and just makes music because he loves it and wants to share it with people who enjoy it like the loyal fans in the audience that night. The energy at this show was unique in that the feeling of support and togetherness carried every person in the room throughout the whole night. Kid Quill has a tight-knit fanbase and I’m glad to have been able to experience it.
