Caamp, a Columbus-based indie rock & folk band, brought the heat to The Fillmore on the chilly night of November 5th.



Opening the show was Molly Tuttle, a bluegrass singer/songwriter and master guitar player from Nashville, Tennessee. As an opener, Molly needed no bells or whistles to bolster her robust energy to the far corners of the venue. Instead it was just her, her guitar, and skill for what she does best. Together, Molly and her guitar filled The Fillmore with rhythm, bass, and delicate prose sung by a sweet, accomplished storyteller.



Caamp began their set with the coordinated guitar strums of "No Sleep," quickly replacing the hefty crowd’s anticipation with pure joy. The crowd hung on every word from frontman Taylor Meier as he sang about deep, true love, and far off places we would all like to go to sometime. Caamp's music is special in the way each song is its own little warm universe inviting the listener to live in for just a moment. Their strong suit is certainly in their storytelling; Taylor and his bandmates, Matt Vinson and Evan Westfal, used this to curate an atmosphere that night of curiosity and beauty through the thick stage fog and invited everyone at The Fillmore to join in it with them.
