Day two of the All Things Go Fall Classic flowed with the same energy from the night before. The line-up was still dominated by women on Sunday, Oct. 7, leading to Carly Rae Jepsen closing out the day. But before Carly’s set, there were plenty of sets to be discovered throughout the day.

I started out the day with Snny, a New York based artist, who brought out the laid back approach to the day. His set consisted most of his EP Learning to Swim, songs that blend psychedelic and R&B sounds, influenced by indie-pop. I recommend adding “MTG” to your everyday playlist.

A huge crowd formed when The Aces took the stage, and there were some diehard fans (specifically some with The Aces-inspired tattoos) who made sure to see them front row. I couldn’t help but to compare them to HAIM because of the all-girl band vibe. When My Heart Felt Volcanic, their debut album, is the perfect blend of summer and melancholy tones. The crowd even got sing “Happy Birthday” to Alisa Ramirez (drummer), turning 21. Easily, The Aces were my new favorite discovery of the day.

Cautious Clay was legit the definition of multi-talented when it comes to music. Not only does he sing, but he can play the ukulele, saxophone, guitar, and flute. He was so calming and so smooth that your forget where you are, if your close your eyes for a second. His Blood Type EP was a perfect introductory to this soulful crooner.

Two Feet brought the BASS to their set. It shook the front row barricade, and you could definitely feel it throughout your body. This intensified the set perfectly with Bill Dess on guitar. I’m a sucker for good guitar solo(s), and I was not disappointed. On A 20 Something F*ck EP, there is literally a song that’s called “Felt like Playing Guitar and Not Singing.” Me and Two Feet were a match made in heaven.

The sun had just set and cooling off from the heat. Betty Who brought the whole market down with her set. Everyone on that stage was so energetic and danced way better than I could even imagine. She even gave a shout-out to her loyal fans that have seen her all over the country. Favorite song from the set is “Mama Say,” from her The Valley album.

Special guest Misterwives continued the same energy into their set. Mandy Lee (lead singer) was ready to leave everything on the floor. “Coloring Outside the Lines” and “Drummer Boy” were personal favorites of mine. Mandy did mention that they are working hard on their third studio album, and she can’t wait to be back onstage to perform new songs for everyone soon. The crowd was fortunate to hear a new song from the upcoming album.

Carly Rae Jepsen ended ATG Fall Classic with disco-pop set. All of her fans were waiting all night to dance her set away. “Cut to the Feeling,” “I Really Like You,” and “Run Away with Me”definitely amped up the crowd. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Carly Rae Jepsen set without “Call Me Maybe,” a song that you couldn’t escape in 2012, but you secretly still listen to in 2018.
Thank you ATG Fall Classic for an amazing weekend. Throughout the whole weekend, I met so many people from all over the country like New York to Denver and even internationally from Australia. Music really does bring people together, and I’m so glad that women had a huge creative voice this year. Thank you to the amazing artists that performed over the weekend and I can’t wait for ATG Fall Classic in 2019!
