Aurora is a Norwegian artist with a mesmerizing voice. She graced the Los Angeles community by performing this past Monday at the Fonda theater. There within the sea of people I stood knowing that this was going to be one of the best nights.
Guitarist/back up vocals of 'Oyster Kids'
The Fonda theater is a small venue, Which I loved since it makes it that much personal. The first group to perform was the 'Oyster Kids'. They honestly look like a group of cool guys that you want to kick it with. The music was very chill and the light tones of blue and purple added to the environment. The best way i can describe them is if 'foster the people' and 'owl city' had a baby It would be 'Oyster kids'. Their Electronica indie sound was a breath of fresh air. It was refreshing to hear good music.It's the type of music where u want to get your favorite person and go under the stars while you smoke a blunt.

After thirty- minutes and a small break we were all introduced to 'Foreign Air'. Their sound would be upbeat then suddenly change to a more serious tone. The energy was felt throughout the crowd, like drugs to a junkie. They weren't on stage long but they left a long lasting impression.

Although I enjoyed the previous groups I was there for Aurora. The audience cheered as the curtain lifted to unveil the Norwegian beauty. I sang along, I danced, I felt everything. Runaway was the first song I stumbled upon when I discovered Aurora. When she sang it live I felt it at a personal level. Every single word I can relate too. I wasn't surprised that at the end of the show we wanted more . Even when she said her goodbyes and walked off the stage with her band we stayed. We called out to her and she came back to do one more song.There within the sea of people I stood knowing that this was going to be one of the best nights.
