Decked out in a black sequined top and ripe cherry red lipstick, Maggie Schneider, started her quick set in Purgatory with a cheerful eagerness. The local songwriter was armed with her acoustic guitar, the case for which she left open on the stage reminiscent of a busker who could be on the streets of Atlanta.
Maggie performed originals like “Insomniac” which told personal stories in an upbeat tempo. Clearly knowing her audience, she performed a Blue October cover that headliner Dalton Rappatoni was known for singing on American Idol. A new song, Tinted Glasses, drew some digital lights in the crowd. She followed this by bringing up songwriting partner Alex Crane, to perform “Break”, a duet complimented by their male/female vocal pairing. Maggie closed out her set on a high note by playing an upbeat original that got the crowd clapping along to provide the backbeat.
