On Thursday I went to see Birds of Tokyo perform at the Hi-Fi. I’ve been obsessed with them since about February this year having their albums on repeat on my drive to and from work. This despite having one of their albums for over a couple of years. I missed my friend C who I normally go to rock concerts with…she’s moved to London. But at the same time, I had a rocking time.
I love the Hi-Fi as a venue. It’s a small venue with standing room only. And for rock concerts, who wants to sit?!
BOT performed some of their older numbers which I think were better received than their recent album…they seem to have gone a bit mellow with March Fires and I prefer their first few albums…they were more raw and definitely a lot more rocking. Let’s just say I was stoked they played a few of my favourites including The Gap, Broken Bones, Silhouettic, Black sheets, Wild eyed boy, Plans…
Can I just say one thing: I’m in love with Ian Kenny!
And I had a pretty good view of him during the entire concert…
So yes, it was a great concert and even though it meant I got home at 1 in the morning and missed the gym the next day and was pretty much caffeinated all of Friday to function, it was so worth it! I can’t wait for another concert of theirs. But I do hope they revert back to their old style for their next album.
Are you listening guys??
Until next time,
