It isn’t easy to keep your emotions in check when witnessing such emotionally raw music as Wet. I’ve been following Wet for years now, hoping to get the chance to see them and maybe even photograph the performance. Since the moment I first heard Kelly Zutrau’s voice I was left in awe at the honesty and emotion shown throughout Wet’s music. So when I got an email inviting me to their show on March 5th with Kilo Kish and Hana Vu, I was ecstatic.
Disappointing to me, the show wasn’t sold out although it was mostly full by the time Wet entered the stage. Walking on wearing an oversized pink pant-suit, Zutrau captivated the crowd instantly. The room was silent, everyone eagerly anticipating what they knew would come next. Although almost all of Wet’s songs are less than upbeat, no one seemed to mind as the audience screamed their heart out to the words that clearly touched everyone in the room, Zutrau included.
She joked with the crowd stating how she wanted to start being more honest on stage, and that talking wasn’t something she normally did during a performance but was pushing herself to be better. They then went directly into playing their biggest hit “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl” and as Zutrau put it, “- a song I never thought anyone would hear, let alone care about.”
Wet delivers a performance unlike any other, where the viewer is able to feel, see and hear the heart inside of the music.
