It’s a cool 60 degrees outside tonight, but inside Subterranean it is hot as it is filled with a sold out crowd. Everyone is excited to see Taylor Cameron Upsahl, aka UPSAHL, from Phoenix, AZ. She last played in Chicago at Park West with K. Flay and corook in February of this year.
“I wanted us to end up as friends, But you fucked it all up. You’re a douchebag, And I can prove that.” The entire audience dances and sings this along with UPSAHL. It’s such a fun and catchy song.
The singalong continues on “Thriving”. “La-la-la-la life is a bitch!” This lyric rolls off your tongue perfectly and the crowd is eating it up. Taylor sings this one with great enthusiasm and energy.
To close out the night, they play their biggest hit to date, “Drugs”, which has over 110 Million streams on Spotify. “I just came here to the party for the drugs / (Drugs), drugs, (drugs), drugs, (drugs) / I’m not tryna make a friend or fall in love.” It’s such a fun and snarky song. Taylor also released a version with Two Feet that is excellent.
See the full setlist here of her show in Austin a few days ago, which is very similar to tonight.
