Taylor Momsen and The Pretty Reckless stormed through Revolution Live Friday night.
They played a variety of songs. From older songs like “Zombie”, “Miss Nothing” and “Hit Me Like A Man” to new songs like “Follow Me Down” and the title track from their new album, “Going To Hell”.
The star of the night was Taylor, who owned the stage. She used a combination of killer vocals and sexuality to keep the crowd jumping through out the set.
I highly recommend you catch The Pretty Reckless the next time they pull into your port.
James Bay is an Englishman on his first US tour. His one man show has a unique intimacy about it. Standing on the stage, alone, with a microphone and guitar, is about as basic as you can get.
I really enjoyed his set. He even got a bit of an encore, when Wild Feathers brought him out for a collaboration.
Wild Feathers was the second band of the night to hit the stage at Revolution Live. This five piece band has a very energetic, southern rock feel.
The highlight of the show for me was when they brought James Bay (the first act of the night) out to join them for a song.
All five band mates have a great feel for the stage. They don’t just play music, they put on a show.
ZZ Ward took over the stage at Revolution Live on Monday night. Her sultry and smokey voice had the small but boisterous crowd belting out her songs.
Fan favorites like 365 Days and Put The Gun Down kept the energy going from start to finish. Even the slow songs have a way of working their way into your body and getting your foot tapping.
I highly suggest you catch ZZ Ward next time she’s in town. Her music is great and the liver performance is even better.
The opening act for FUN. last night in Boca Ration, FL was the Canadian duo, Tegan and Sara.
They played their brand of indie rock to a adoring, excited and packed crowd. Admittedly, the majority of the crowd was there to see FUN., but they didn’t let it show.
Although I didn’t know much about Tegan and Sara going into the show, I did enjoy their performance. If this is your vibe, give em a listen next time they are in town.
FUN. brought their summer tour to Mizner Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Florida last night, starting the show off in formal attire.
Perched atop the elevated platform on the stage with three spot lights illuminating their faces, was quite a show opener.
The rest of the show is what you’d expect from FUN. Energy, lights and good music. The crowd was feeling it and so was I.
If you haven’t seen them live, I highly suggest you catch them next time they visit a venue near you.
Pepper lit up the stage last Tuesday night at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale. Right from the start Pepper filled the smokey venue with their high paced, energetic form of reggae rock.
The San Diego based trio is touring in support of their new self titled album, Pepper. The set list consisted mostly of newer songs, including the brand new single, Fuck Around.
This being my first Pepper experience, I was highly impressed. They held the energy at a 10 the entire show. I suggest you check them out next time they are in your town.
The second performance of the night was by Jelly Roll and Lil Wyte. These guys had a great command of the stage. Going back and forth between solo and collaborative songs.
My favorite part of their performance was the introduction of “Bob The Rachet Hatchet” to the crowd. Lil Wyte found a hatchet at The Gathering of the Juggalos and now carries it around with him on stage. Amazing.
Have you ever been to a Jelly Roll or Lil Wyte show? Tell me what you thought.
As part of the Twiztid show on Tuesday night I also got to photograph Aqualeo. This two man crew was first out on the stage and set the tone for the night.
They owned the stage right from the start with their high energy and face paint. Throw in a little choreography and you have a very entertaining experience.
I was pleasently surprised to hear some pointed, socially conscious lyrics, including a song about the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin trial.
Last night I got to experience my first Twiztid show. I really didn’t know what to expect going into it. What I saw was a high tempo show, performed by two guys who exuded energy and a love for performing.
Cheering them on was a small but dedicated group of fans. Faces painted or not, this group of fans showed up early and went hard the entire night.
I was thoroughly impressed with the entire experience. Check out the photos above and next time Twiztid comes to your town, you should check them out.
