Nathaniel Rateliff Played a Sold Out Show at The Chapel

Nathaniel_Rateliff

It was shoulder to shoulder at The Chapel on Wednesday night. The crowd was filled with fans eager to see Nathaniel Rateliff from Denver, Colorado.

I had never seen Nathaniel Rateliff in concert before his show at The Chapel on the 9th. I wanted to catch this show based on hearing amazing praise from local singer songwriter, Travis Hayes, who had opened for him when the band toured through San Francisco a couple months ago.

Upon arrival at The Chapel, I hugged my friend and Chapel security guard Cade. He warned me about the crowd and advised me to use the side entrance if I wanted to snag any photos. I progressed through the Vestry to the side entrance, when I swung open the door it revealed a very sweaty pack of fans. There was barely room to move my groove shaker but I did my best. The Rock & Roll music of Nathaniel Ratelifft is a lot of fun to dance to. It feels inspired by the Blues Brothers, Jackson 5 and various other 50’s pop artists. After a bit of dancing I suddenly got very tired and decided to peace out … but not before hugging Travis Hayes, who I spotted in the hallway and high fiving my friend Ted Maider, skateboard legend in his own. When I finally got home, I passed out hard.

It was a good night!
