On May 1, 2023, hyperpop artist Glaive announced a North American headlining tour following the release of his first full-length album, “i care so much that i don’t care at all.” As the sixth stop on tour, he performed at Atlanta’s Terminal West alongside Polo Perks and Origami Angel.
New York artist Polo Perks opened the show, performing a short set of some of his most popular rap songs including “Who Killed Kenny,” and “Duppy Drill + FEBPHONZO.” The rapper was met with cheers from the audience as he encouraged the room to jump along to the beats and shouted out audience members who sang the lyrics.
American rock duo Origami Angel followed with a very lively performance. A small mosh pit formed as their set continued with upbeat tracks like “24 Hr Drive-Thru.” The final song of their set beckoned a few crowdsurfers, which was unexpected but very welcomed by the rest of the audience.
As he performed almost every song from the newest album as well as some of his older hits, the energy in the room never died down. As Glaive ran back and forth across the stage, audience members at barricade sang into the microphone, handed him gifts, and were able to ask questions in between songs.
The energy in the room was at an all-time high as the performance neared its end and Glaive thanked the crowd for their continuous support. He finally closed the evening with a bouncy performance of his tracks "Minnesota is a place that exists" and "Astrid," the song than can be credited for his initial rise to fame.
