Audendo Festival Photos & More!
This is was a great night of music! Those who were there, we don’t have to tell you and for those of you who had to miss it, shame shame! But don’t fret, we’ve got pics in our photo gallery under Audendo 2010 and highlights below ..
Pigeon John started the night off and we must say we’ll be looking into him further. He was hype and got the crowd lifted to start things off. He had a decent flow, back round tracks and a live drummer. We’ll prob end up downloading some of his music this week and you’ll be hearing more about him from us in the future..
White Rabbits played 3rd… this band has been working the indie circuit for some time and has a core following. Their energetic set, with high powered kettle drums and harmonies got the crowd moving and intrigued. This guys are a really tight band and it shows they’ve been seasoned in playing live shows.
Anberlin was the headliner and the crowd was very jazzed for this group. Chanting their name before the set and signing along to most of their songs, the band and the Audendo crowd really had a good time together. The band was very endearing to the crowd and loved the fact the crowd was loving them. These guy’s musical style have not changed as much as their looks. We remember them with emo hair cuts, girls jeans, & T’s. But now they rock shorter hair with a more matured rock attire. None the less, the show was still very high energy and the crowd loved it.
The highlight of the night for us was undoubtedly, The Low Anthem. We knew of a few songs from this band before seeing them live on Friday, & let us tell you, we were not prepared for how stellar this performance was. The Low Anthem played on a constant, shadowing, warm lit stage, which totally gave the appeal of them playing in a candle lit barn or something. The 4 part harmonies were magical enough to bring tears to your eyes and the variety of song and instrumentation definitely left us longing for more. They did and audience participation element we have never seen at the end of the song “This Damn House”. They asked everyone to brake out cell phones and call the person next to them at the end of the 2nd chorus. Once answered you held the phones so they were facing each other. It created this warm like cricket sound, which complimented the end of their song beautifully. Chilling… (See pics in our gallery)… Definitely see this band live and download their album, Oh My God Charlie Darwin, this instant!
Messiahs is already planning Audendo Festival 2011 and we are excited for the next best things they have in store! So stay tuned…
