For the second time in 2 years I’ve been lucky enough to see Tonight Alive (an Australian band), I’m a big fan of them and slowly their coming through. When I first got into them not many people had heard of them but now they’re creeping up after playing Reading Festival this year, supporting You Me At Six on the Australian leg of their tour and now playing a sold out tour, as well as two dates at Koko in Camden (the same night as Mallory Know were playing down the road) playing album The Other Side in full tonight.
I love Tonight Alive and front woman Jenna McDougall kicks ass at every show I’ve seen. The band can go from going crazy to slower songs like ‘Amelia’, which Jenna bravely played on her own tonight with just the fans and an Acoustic Guitar, something not many front women do alone. The band just seemed so grateful for us all to be there, and you could see how much it meant to them. Comparing seeing them in a small venue and somewhere like Koko I think it would be fair to say that there were some nerves but they pulled them back in.
I really do love live music.
