The Lumineers (3/11/17)

It’s nice to have friends, especially ones who offer you an extra (free) ticket!  That was probably the only reason I was seeing The Lumineers at the Wolstein Center.  Not because I dislike them but… that band, in that venue, for that price - doesn’t intrinsically motivate me.  However, it was still a great time with a good friend - and some decent music.  We just missed Susto, but were able to catch Kaleo, an Icelandic rock band that sounds a lot like the Black Keys.

The Lumineers sounded great, and the lead singer had some touching and earnest stories about the songs they were performing.  The first video below is a collection of clips, but the second one is a video Charlie Boy with some nice effects (and a great story).  You can find more details about the show, and details on the specific songs via the link below.

"Frontman Wesley Schultz told the crowd that band members put their heads together before the weekend's concert and decided their last appearance in Cleveland was a 2011 show at the now-defunct Barking Spider Tavern.

Schultz apologized for failing to make it to Northeast Ohio more frequently, encouraging much applause.

Their Saturday night show included a crowd-pleasing set filled with their hits, along with covers of a Tom Petty and a Bob Dylan song."
