Breathe Carolina headlined last night at the Ace of Spades, following no fewer than three very entertaining and strong support acts: Lionfight, Ghost Town and Mod Sun.
Very good evening and "the crowd went wild"!
Young fans were lined up outside the venue, clutching VIP passes, before the doors opened. A collection of photos to be signed; a new tour T-shirt already being worn; excited faces. A lot of the crowd were under 21; there were families and some oldies like me, but for the most part it was kids out having fun, seeing their favourite band.
Breathe Carolina opened their show with Savages, first single from the new album (also called Savages), which will be released on April 15th. The single is already available: find a link on http://www.breathecarolina.net/
From the moment they started, they just piled on the energy.
The light show was intense and together with the hazy-fog, made it tricky to photograph the individuals in the band. But the show wasn't about one person, or another: it was about the organic meeting of music, performers, audience and the energy generated. So in the gallery, that's what you'll find. <-- click the link
Breathe Carolina are currently on tour and still have many dates lined up. Catch them near you!
