|Step right up!|
We watched the opener from the Foundation Room while having some drinks and food. We lost count of how many people were actually on stage for Y La Bamba but who cares? They sounded pretty cool. The band is from Portland, Oregon and describes themselves as "eclectic indie folk pop." This song, "Juniper," has a great call-and-response and I love how their voices harmonize.
The crowd was in love with The Lumineers from the moment the lights came up. Looking around, every fan around us was singing along - when the band performed their second single, "Stubborn Love", Y La Bamba joined them on stage. I loved hearing "Ain't Nobody's Problem" - I love the build-up.
This moment was pretty great, when members of The Lumineers came out into the middle of the crowd and performed the hit "Ho Hey":
What did I learn that evening?
1. "Monday is the New Friday." - Mike
2. If you order Vodka and Red Bull shots at the House of Blues, they come as actual drinks, not shots. Bottoms up!
3. The Lumineers has a HUGE following in Boston - it was a sold-out crowd! I certainly recommend checking this band out when they're in your neck of the woods next. You won't be disappointed.
