Hotel Mira Come Home To A Sold Out Commodore Ballroom

On January 19, 2024, Hotel Mira comes home to a sold out Commodore Ballroom.

"Thanks so much for braving the shitty weather to be here."

“Once upon a time there was light in my life, now there’s only love in the dark. Nothing I can say…” As the band took the stage in the blacked out Commodore, they were serenaded by the crowd, singing enthusiastically to the song playing over the PA. Despite the 11:00pm start time, both the crowd and band were ready to rock. They kicked things off with “King of the World”. Singer Charlie Kerr, might be the King of the world, but he’s definitely a King of the stage. His presence on the stage is undeniable. 

"If you're going through a breakup, and you're the problem. this ones for you."

The crowd was connected from the first note. Singing along to every word. A few of those being Kerr’s parents, of which he noted that it was weird singing some of the songs, when they were there in the front row. The crowd was there for the once local, now LA based band.

"We're lucky to play this stuff for our fans, thank you guys."

"Did you say I'm amazing? gotta raise your standards."

It was an ebb and flow between the stage and crowd. The two coming together, not just in spirit, but a few times, physically. With Kerr jumping down off the stage and standing on the barricade, leaning out into the sea of people, holding as many hands that he could reach. He then floated up over them, surfing to the midway point, never missing a beat. Until finally he was let down, and made his way back to the stage.

"No sad songs, make us dance? You came to the wrong show...!"

And with that line they hopped into their final song of the night. Giving their fans something to remember as they headed back out into the shitty weather.

Were you at the show? What did you think?
