What do you get when you mix an orange sunset, grey colored birds, clinging humidity and Italian inspired architecture? Weirdly enough, a metalcore concert. As these weren’t really the most ideal of combinations, but these worked together to set the stage for one of the most exciting up-and-comers. Setting the stage for the unleashing of Issues. And that fateful afternoon turned out to be beastly.
And the hooligans from Atlanta certainly did not disappoint. Laying of a song selection that shoots like an assault rifle – “Personality Cult”, “Sad Ghost”, “Princeton Ave”, “Never Lose Your Flames”, “Life of a Nine” indeed got things to business. Proving to be one tight unit, the 5-piece band kept on giving. The interplay between the members were entertaining and noteworthy with stylings that can get your Pony footwear ready for mosh action. And mosh they did! With “Stingray Affliction”, “Love Sex Riot” all in their robust setlist. Ultimately, “Mad At Myself”, “The Settlement” and “Hooligans” cap off their set nicely.
Like we said, beastly.
