Speedy Ortiz in Concert
Saturn Birmingham | Birmingham, Alabama | September 7th, 2018
Recap + Concert Photography
"Twerp Verse", the latest album from Speedy Ortiz and released by Carpark Records, has been called the band's most direct and upfront release. It's an album that is upfront in terms of the sound of Speedy Ortiz and the politically charged nature of the lyrics. This upfront attitude is also on display when it comes to the band's live performances, and that was crystal clear during their set at Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama on September 7th. Playing in the opening slot for Liz Phair, Speedy Ortiz delivered a confident set bristling with attitude.
After hearing a lot of great things about Speedy Ortiz and the work of Sadie Dupuis, I was quite happy to be able to see them perform in concert. The group did not disappoint one bit as they more than held their own with this show, which was only the second stop on the tour with Liz Phair. It really was everything I look for in a show when I photograph one. There was a lot of movement from Dupuis, great lighting on the band, and just a stellar vibe from start to finish. Speedy Ortiz is aces live and in concert just like they are on their albums.
