Cherry Glazerr + Slow Hollows @ Chicago's Subterranean by Alexandria Dravillas

February 3, 2017

Since performing at Beach Goth 2016, Slow Hollows have made themselves a renowned name. They have continued to seize opportunity in the creative music world, as they are on their first North American tour.

Cherry Glazerr has truly blossomed. It is very interesting to see how Clem has transitioned as an artist throughout the years. I like to compare it to my own growth since I first saw her open up for King Tuff at Crescent Ballroom back in high school. It makes me think about the evolution of an artist and their audience; they grow together. 

Clem emphasizes performance, not appearance. She is a bold, independent artist who uses her following as a tool to talk about societal issues from a feminist standpoint. She conveys her beliefs through her music.

I saw familiar faces pop out of a sea of moshing fans, though they eventually got swallowed back in.
I sat on the steps leading up to the stage. The setlist is scotch taped to a wall in my kitchen. No one else had a chance of getting it, although, they tried.
Cherry Glazerr did not close with the usual “Sweaty Kids,” but enough people were swimming upstream to jump off stage.
