It takes supreme confidence to begin a concert with a spoken word poem followed by a gentle, acoustic ballad. Neither tend to elicit the excited energy that is often expected at the start of a pop show, but Andy Grammer proved that expectations can be mistaken when he recently electrified the crowd at The Fillmore Silver Spring by doing exactly that.

If Tuesday night is not supposed to be a night to party, don’t tell that to everyone at the Andy Grammer concert. The 9:30 Club was packed full of people who were ready to dance, sing, and party all night long with Andy, and he was ready to entertain. Kicking the show off with his hit song “Good to Be Alive,” a sentiment felt by everyone who erupted when the first notes were played, the tone was set from the get go.
