“On the count of 3 we are going to do a big inhale,” says Remi Wolf to a sold out crowd, last night at The Fonda. “1! 2! 3! Shh! Quiet on set, run it, I been takin’ my bets, frontin’”
And just like that the crowd erupted with the energy of a pre-pandemic college party. The crowd at the Fonda went wild for the soulful, indie-pop hero that is Remi Wolf.
From the moment you stepped into the Fonda, you could see fans lined up around the merch table, up the stairs and into the abyss waiting for their chance to get a hand on a Remi Wolf concert tee with her beloved dog “Juno” on the front and talking about which song is their favorite in hopes of hearing it later on. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a college party with people scattered all over waiting for drinks, the bathrooms, friends and the opening act Grace Ives.
First up was the one-woman show, Grace Ives. Once she come on stage in a pair of pink fairy wings and a music sequencer, fans were engulfed by her ambient lo-fi synth performance that props everyone to sway and groove to Ives’ anxiety-ridden lyrics.
“You Go Grace!”
There were a lot of cheers from all corners of the room as Ives performed fan favorites, “Icing on the Cake” and “Mirror.” The dance party had officially began and Ives was the perfect fire-starter for the explosive production that was about to take place.
As soon as Remi Wolf arrived on stage, you were automatically thrown into a Euphoria episode of fun loving Y2K Thrift Dreams. There are psychedelic videos of Remi Wolf projected on the walls. There is a live band. There is thee Remi Wolf.
With a twirl of her curly hair and a snap of her fingers, fans are hooked. They know every word of every song sang down to her rifts, and that is saying a lot because Remi Wolf is a vocal power house of funky avant pop. From “Liquor Store” to “Sexy Villain” to “Photo ID” to “Buttermilk” there is never a moment where concert goers are not dancing, singing and genuinely having fun.
“Sexy … did y’all know y’all are sexy?” “It’s a state of mind,” states Remi Wolf.
Remi Wolf is for the people and they love that about her. Her vibrant energy gushes with good vibes and it’s absolutely infectious. At one point in Remi Wolf’s performance she sang “Happy Birthday” to a fan named Abby and the “Remjobs” (Wolf’s fanbase) sang along with no problem. It was beautiful thing to witness.
Last night was 1 of 2 Remi Wolf concert at the Fonda Theatre. If I was you, I would try to snag a ticket to tonight’s show or a Remi Wolf performance ASAP.
