If you’ve been following me on Instagram, and let’s be honest you should be following me on there, then you’d already know that over the past week I’ve gone to not one, not two, but THREE ‘MAN OF THE WOODS’ CONCERTS.
Now y’all know that I don’t mind going to shows by myself and that’s exactly what I did for these. I later found out that I had friends in the audience at two of them, but we must’ve just missed each other in lobbies. Anywho! The shows were absolutely amazing. I screamed, danced and sang my behind off and wouldn’t mind seeing the show another dozen times. It was a high-energy from the crowd and performers onstage, the vocals and choreo were on point and the opening act killed it each night!
I hadn’t heard of the ‘Shadowboxers’ before this tour and I now know that I was missing out. This trio from Atlanta had me grooving for 30 minutes before Justin each night and I was hooked after the first show. I legit got on Spotify after I saw their set for the first time and followed them and added the songs to my current favorited playlist. They just released an EP back in April and performed most of it, along with an MJ cover during their set. I was able to give the EP a good listen (a few good listens actually) on Thursday at work, and I’m sure people noticed that I had the same six songs on repeat all day. *Kanye shrug* I missed their meet & greets in Houston because I didn’t want to lose my spot on the floor, but I made sure to go in Dallas and I got the chance to meet the guys, let them know that they have a new fan and I even scored an autographed copy of their EP!
A few early favorites are “Wolves”, “Hot Damn!” and “Wolves”. Y’all, I probably had those three songs on repeat for like 2 hours. Yeah, they’re that good. In fact, the entire EP is which is why I wanted to share it with y’all today. Take a listen to it below and let feel free to follow them on Instagram where they share a ton of backstage clips from the tour and other shenanigans!
