The indie rock band, Bad Suns, came home to the Teragram Ballroom. Hailing from Los Angeles, the gig marked the return home and an end to the band’s “Disappear Here” tour, supported by Kid Bloom and COIN.
Fans of Bad Suns were treated to a set filled with songs from their newest album as well as their first studio album, “Language & Perspective.”
Friday night provided Californian sounding music from the first opening act, Los Angeles-based band, Kid Bloom. The band proved their ability to rock from balconies to sold-out venues with impressive instrumentation and laidback vocals. Their sweet sounding psych-pop songs attracted many of the Bad Suns fans.
The only band that wasn’t from Los Angeles, COIN, went on next. Although most of the attendees were there for Bad Suns, a significant amount of people sang along to their set.
Behind me were two very energetic middle school-aged boys. Even though most of the crowd was made up of teenage girls, these young Bad Suns fans didn’t seem to mind. I overheard the two talking about their favorite songs and what they hoped to hear. When Bad Suns finally took the stage, they and the other fans were not disappointed as Bad Suns kicked off the night with songs from “Disappear Here” and slowly added older songs like “Dancing on Quicksand.”
The night ended with a three song encore. A throwback to their first album, they performed “Rearview,” “Heartbreaker,” and “Salt,” to the cheers of the jubilant crowd.
Fans left with a reenergized passion for the band. Though they just released “Disappear Here,” many were anxiously waiting for their next release.
