Photos: Converge @ w/ Coalesce @ Neumos

As soon as I heard news that Converge was coming to Nuemos last week, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to go. I knew it would be one of the craziest/sweatiest/rowdiest shows of the year so far. It most definitely was. Not to mention these guys are four of the most talented musicians playing hardcore music right now. This show was nothing short of amazing. Sure, I took wayyy too many pictures with a really crappy lens on my camera (the viewing of which you can subject yourself to below), but I don’t think there was a second during the show when there wasn’t a foot in my face or a body flying over me. There was way too much going on to not fire off a shot at nearly every person jumping off the stage.

Show Review & Photos: Two Door Cinema Club @ Nectar

Wow. And wow again. That’s my response to Two Door Cinema Club’s show on Saturday night. This band is so fantastic and it was such a pleasure to see them at Nectar. As an avid fan of bass guitar, it was a special treat to see bassist Kevin Baird nail those lines and attack his space. I’ve rarely seen such a good bassist. Two Door Cinema Club’s songs are stunners. I’ve been listening to their CD, Tourist History, over and over and there’s not a weak song on it. The band from Northern Ireland, is as they say, on the verge of something big. They should be the big band of the year, I reckon. Their build up in Do You Want it All was a soaring hop and This is the Life was a cool, terrific hug of a performance. Singers and guitarists Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday also proved to be unique and major figures. I am in love with this band – as were the audience members around me. I haven’t seen so many people hang around at a club show to talk to a band in quite a while. From their MySpace page I gather they actually are doing a world tour through November: America, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and then back again. See this band and buy the CD! Now! My photos:
