Show Review: Everywhere I Go Tour

I had the wonderful opportunity to check out New Politics, Bad Suns and SomeKindaWonderful on the Charlotte stop of the Everywhere I Go tour.

SomeKindaWonderful kicked off the show with a short but upbeat set, including their popular single, Reverse.  They quickly warmed up the crowed with their fun soul-funk-alternative sound.  Singer Jordy Towers and percussionist Sarah Dyer put forth particularly powerful performances, and these guys had the crowd jumping in no time.

Bad Suns followed with a much mellower sound.  This California-based band has cultivated a certain dreamy quality to their performance that really seemed to captivate the audience, and by the end of their set the crowd buzzed with excitement.

Finally, David Boyd, Søren Hansen, and Louis Vecchio took the stage and New Politics closed the show with a bang.  Throughout their performance, this three piece band managed to fill the entire room with their infectious energy and dance-rock sound.  Their set included everything from their hit songs Harlem and Tonight You’re Perfect to a Beastie Boys cover.  Toward the end of the show, Boyd jumped into the crowd, who happily held him aloft as he sang.  This is without a doubt a band that knows how to keep a crowd entertained.

You can catch these great bands on the rest of the Everywhere I Go tour.  Check here for dates!
