Ryan Star w/Hope & Days Difference - Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge 11.8.2010
Hope opened the show around 8:45 with her guitarist Mike and percussionist Manny and was absolutely adorable. It was her first tour, and had Ryan not said something about it later in the show, I never would have known. She was poised, had a great amount of stage presence and her songs were great. She only sang 5 songs, but I found myself jamming along at times and really getting into it. Everyone in the room was very polite and responsive to her as well, which is always nice to see. I hate it when I go to a show and the crowd is rude to the opener because they don't care. Hope played for about a half hour and I think I'm going to have to investigate some of her music further. She wrapped up around 9:15 and the stage started to get turned over for Days Difference to play at 9:30.
