One guitar, one set of drums, a few spotlights and speakers and a ton of sweat. Welcome to an evening with Japandroids.
The Vancouver duo did not disappoint. High energy. Good times. Killer songs.
Be sure to head over to the KDHX website for a first look at pictures and we’ll be back here later in the week with more photos and a recap.
I really regretted missing out on Japandroids the last time they came through town (Billiken Club, w/Surfer Blood!), so their opening set for The Walkmen at Off Broadway was a priority for me on the concert calendar. Having checked out video/reviews/pictures of earlier shows, I thought I was prepared for the Japandroids experience, but that changed a little when I walked into the venue and saw the wall of amps dominating the backside of the stage. A nice heads up for the rock assault that would soon take place at the hands of the Vancouver duo.
