Phantogram / Future Islands (10/8/13)

This was quite the double-bill.  While I guess you could say Future Islands was opening, for me these guys are a headline act - and usually were so in the Tavern side.  I was excited to see such a large (and good looking!) crowd out on this night.  While I adore Future Islands, I'm not sure it really resonated with the crowd like it does in the Tavern.  I think proximity is great for them, with such an aggressive lead singer… or maybe audiences just are giving up on dancing.  Either way - I LOVE the music that Future Islands put out and was thrilled they had a larger crowd.

As for Phantogram - that was ONE HELL of a light show!!  While I rarely wish people to sound like their recorded music - on this instance, I wish they did.  Live I wasn't quite as excited about their sound, but they more than made up with it with an assault on the eyes.
