The headliner, InHeaven, were obviously pleased at the well-attended gig which was the first of the tour. Having played the venue before to a more bijou crowd they must have had a warm fuzzy feeling from the very bouncy crowd. InHeaven have a sound that benefits from Nirvana-style guitar riffs, fun melodies and a pop sensibility. Not knowing much about the band I get the impression these guys have played with different styles until they found a musical “sweet spot” of their own. They are great on stage and built on the mosh circle that started with Otherkin.
Some of the audience were maybe past their bedtime and felt the need to jump on the stage. This isn’t wise, kids. Bands depend on expensive equipment to create that great sound…do your dancing in the crowd. Of course, crowd surfing by the male lead singer is fine, we approve of that.
