The Front Bottoms gave their Minneapolis fans a night to remember as they performed for a packed and energetic crowd at First Avenue on Wednesday.
The energy was high from the moment the band took the stage with “Skeleton,” “Today Is Not Real,” and “West Virginia.”
After the first three songs, The Front Bottoms began to play their entire self-titled album in order. Beginning with “Flashlight” and ending with “Hooped Earrings” before adding on a few bonus songs from other albums. It was beyond cool to hear the album live from start to finish. That doesn’t happen at many concerts, but maybe it should.
Highlights of the night include “Twin Size Mattress” which the crowd went absolutely crazy for. Other tracks that gained a loud reaction were “Rhode Island”, “Father”, and “Maps“ which lead singer Brian Sella stated “is a song about traveling around with your friends.” I mean, what’s better than that? Not much!
The band wrapped up the night with “Au Revoir (Adios)” which couldn’t have been a more fitting finish to the night. Overall, The Front Bottoms put on one heck of a show. Don’t miss out on the chance to see them live, you won’t be disappointed.
