Kesha: At The End Of The Rainbow

Kesha: At The End Of The Rainbow

With praying, spitting, and a little boogie-ing, Kesha’s last stop on her U.S. leg of the Rainbow tour was nothing short of a pot of gold.

If you say you don’t listen to Kesha then there’s probably a good chance you’re a liar or an elitist. Catch me and the rest of the world, without shame, screaming the lyrics to middle school smashes like “Tik Tok” and “Take it Off”. The rest of the world may be an exaggeration, but there’s a good lot of people that know those songs whether they want to or not, and there’s something to say about Kesha’s relevance in that sense. HOWEVER, I am digressing..I am here to talk about her FINAL U.S. stop for her Rainbow tour that I attended..and what a time it was.

On November 1st, a Wednesday (HUMP DAY), Kesha closed out her Rainbow tour in the U.S. at the Hollywood Palladium. This is a historic and iconic venue in Hollywood that regularly hosts concerts and events with intermediate to pretty well-known acts. I saw Troye Sivan there just last year around the same time.

It can hold around 4,000 people and it was pretty packed that night...lots of heads blocking my view of KE$HA (does anyone remember?)

So it started off with an opener..and they were not too impressive. I never caught their name and could not find it online, so apologies for that. Either way, the music was more so in the alternative realm and wasn’t bad, the issue was the interaction with the crowd. Had they been more engaged with the crowd then I think the concert would’ve had a better tone set for the rest of the night but I’s Kesha...we all knew why we were there.

SHE ARRIVED on stage and obviously the whole crowd went wild, and from then on the concert was a night to remember. Equipped with a glittered face and my good buddy Sloan (FELLOW ODYSSEY CREATOR), the show was great. She did hits from her earlier years like the aforementioned “Tik Tok” and “Take It Off” as well as others like “Your Love Is My Drug” “We R Who We R” and more. Songs from her latest album, Rainbow included “Praying”, “Godzilla” (a personal fav), and “Woman”.

She delivered high energy and a pretty rockin’ delivery with her vocals. It was made clear at the beginning of her set that she wanted the “rock n roll” spirit she adored to be alive in her shows. So naturally, by the end of the show, she had found her child...

OKAY, no I did not just reveal Kesha has had a secret child this whole time..she instead found the nest to her egg...the beak to her worm...the baby to her bird. What that means is that Kesha spit alcohol into a VERIFIED 21+ year old’s mouth and thus added to her family of regurgitation. Some may quiver and/or shiver at this thought, but I thought that was pretty wild and I’m all about the unexpected. Whoever she did it too was into it, they why not?

Kesha also told us about the fake ending a lot of artists do so that we would know that we get another song...but then she played us and did another song after the one she said would be the “real” ending after exposing her “fake” ending confused yet? Either way, she liked to play with our minds.

Lastly, I think the types of people that show up to a show for an artist say A LOT about the artist themselves. At this show, there were many people in glitter (as I mentioned I was), fun clothing, dyed hair, and just generally eccentric people. This brought a very accepting vibe with it and made the night feel free from judgment or expectation.

So, basically Kesha is still killing it, and it’s amazing that she is. After all of the troubles she has had to endure with Dr. Luke and the legal battle there, it is amazing to see her doing what she loves without regard to those who have tried to bring her down..emulating the message that the biggest “F U” you can EVER send to people who hurt you, is that you’re doing better without them. Now go stunt on someone who did you wrong, it’ll feel good. BYE!

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

You're finally back to your old self.

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
