Last night was my first Popscene experience and the indie club night certainly lived up to its reputation of fast times, good bands and lots of dancing.
Indie pop darlings, The Frail started the night off right with a tight set played to a growing crowd. Vocalist, Daniel Lannon spent most of his time between the crowd and the stage as the band delivered their 3-minute catchy tunes to a very receptive crowd. The local four-piece closed their set with “Frenemies” from their newest EP ‘Lasers Over Lovers’ and Lannon invited the crowd on stage to finish their set with a bang.
Under a sea of laser lights, show stealers The Hundred Days kept heartbeats racing as they flew through the first half of their set. The band brought their British inspired indie songs back to back, only stopping for a spot of social commentary about a guy attempting to pick up at the bar by vocalist, Jonathan Smith.
The Hundred Days are a captivating live band to listen to and watch. It’s easy to see why The Hundred Days pull a crowd and booked a spot on the SXSW 2011 line up.
The Frail are playing at The Independent on 1/30. Keep an eye out for both bands as they are best heard live!
