Steven Markowitz (a.k.a. Hoodie Allen) is undeniably comfortable on stage. Stage presence is usually something taken for granted for such a big name, but it was especially noticeable when following the openers of the night. While Miles Parrish and Luke Christopher made remarks explaining their novice in the art of touring during their sets, Hoodie emphasized the opposite, expressing gratitude to his fans for being able to tour for several… continue reading
