Faye Webster & Maya Hawke – Union Transfer – Philadelphia, PA – August 20, 2022
Last Saturday night, Faye Webster’s Car Therapy Sessions Tour came to Union Transfer in Philly, accompanied by none other than Maya Hawke, singer and actress on the popular show Stranger Things.
I wasn’t sure what type of crowd this show would draw, but I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The seemingly never-ending line wrapping around the venue was one of the most vastly diverse groups of people I’ve ever seen, which was incredibly refreshing. People of all ages were eager to see both Faye and Maya that night.
Prior to Hawke taking the stage, the crowd was buzzing with excitement to see the two singer/songwriters. I chatted with a couple of girls in the venue, and they shared with me that people began lining up at 10 AM for the show that night, so then I knew how important this show was to Maya and Faye’s fans, which made the evening even more special to witness.
When Hawke took the stage, audience members let out uncontrollable screams. After the initial shock wore off, everyone quieted down to assure that they’d hear every note of the melodious acoustic set. Maya performed hit songs “Sweet Tooth” and “Thérèse” as well as songs from her upcoming album titled Moss. Her stage presence was illuminating, to say the least.
A little while later, it was Webster’s time to step on stage. As she came out, the crowd sang along with her to the lyrics of “Better Distractions,” followed by “Kind Of,” and then hit song “Right Side of My Neck.” The mellow lighting and vibe of the shows that Faye puts on are unbeatable and unmatchable. Everyone in the room came together to sing along to each and every song, appreciating every moment with their newfound friends in front of their favorite artist.
She then played more songs from her newest EP “Car Therapy Sessions,” as well as her most recent album I Know I’m Funny Haha. Though the audience was sad to see the night come to an end, they were gifted with memories of an unforgettable night because of Faye’s and Maya’s performances.
