Monday night I got to live my dream of finaaaaally seeing Bombay Bicycle Club live at Cat’s Cradle. It was everything, and waaaay more than I could have even imagined. They’vre hands down one of my favourite bands, and probably one of my favourite live shows…ever.
The band opened with “Overdone” and of course, they immediately commenced blowing my mind. This show was far from a soft lullaby to tuck the audience in for the night. The English band, with it’s typical warm tones and softer ballads, dashed all expectations of anyone who thought that’s what they were about, with a head-banging garage band persona. They closed with “Carry Me” and prior to that, “What If” – which is one of my all-time favourite older BBC songs, off their 2009 album “I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose”.
I honestly don’t have any other words to say except THE SHOW WAS FREAKING AMAZING. It was insanely hot that day, (in the mid 90’s) and the venue didn’t really have any A/C going…so, everyone was drenched in their own sweat..GROSS, I know. It was so worth it though! Tons and tons of dancing – I mean, if you’re gonna sweat, at least do it right!
Here are some videos and photos from the show! Don’t mind the occasional shaky video..and lower quality iPhone pics..enjoy! :)
“Lights Out, Words Gone”
“It’s Alright Now”
(And a little bonus: Royal Canoe’s “Button Fumbla” – cus I have to rep my Canadians!)
