Eliza McLamb recently released her debut full-length, Going Through It, via Royal Mountain Records — and she’s touring the album now! Eliza swung by Union Stage in DC for a show recently, and Carolin Harvey was there to photograph the concert.

The following article is adapted from a press release.

At Union Stage on March 25, the setlist consisted mostly of the album as Eliza opened with tracks “Before,” “Glitter,” and “Punch Drunk.”

Toward the end of the main set, Eliza performed “Modern Woman,” the single that proceeded the release of the album.

Stream “Modern Woman” by Eliza McLamb on YouTube:

Eliza closed the set with “Mythologize Me,” a caustic look at “young love” with its lyrics: “Make me in your perfect image of a girl/ So sweet but always incomplete and grateful for/ Your needs to give me meaning.”

On top of pursuing a career in music, Eliza is the co-host of the enormously popular podcast Binchtopia which has received much deserved recognition from The New York Times in their deep dive into the exciting new wave of female creators. McLamb also has her Substack where she publishes personal and investigative essays. While both of those avenues offer insight into McLamb’s mind, it’s her music that helps her work through the past.

“I sit down to write when I’m feeling a certain way and I don’t know why,” she said. “It’s a process of translating an emotional reality into a musical one, something that can be easily shared.”
