Live: The Twilight Sad @ U Street Music Hall, 5/12/19

It had all been going so well. Up until the fifth song of the set, that is. But not halfway through that fifth song, "Last January," The Twilight Sad's front fellow James Graham turned to face his compatriots onstage and made "cut" gestures, shaking his head and slumping his shoulders.

With this being the third show of the band's US tour, and with his vocal health on the line, Graham went into self-preservation mode. Obviously wrestling with his decision, it was a pained and incredibly apologetic James Graham who announced to the warm, supportive crowd at the U Street Music Hall that the show would not, in fact, be going on. After looking like he was holding back tears at the idea of disappointing the assembled fans, Graham left the stage, followed by his four TTS compatriots.

Admittedly, this wasn't how I imagined my first Twilight Sad show.


That being said, it's difficult to fault Graham's decision, and it was obviously not a decision lightly…
