So apparently self-proclaimed "Cope Heads" consists of overly-affectionate couples, creepy single dudes looking to pick off the strays, and me... or at least those were the dynamics at Friday night's show. Despite the strange (and loud!) crowd chatter, Citizen Cope commanded the room, delivering consistent crowd pleasers (aka almost the entirety of The Clarence Greenwood Recordings), a surprising choice due to the heavy push for the brand new The Rain Water LP. Perhaps we caught him on the throwback night, as both of his 2-night stints at The Fillmore were said to be at capacity. Friday night's set closed out with "Sideways," and a cameo from supporting vocalist Alice Smith, who has literally the most unreal voice we've ever heard. Overall, a strong presence, an enthusiastic crowd, and some amazing lyrics pieced into beautiful melodies.
