Its March and if we're being honest it shouldn't be snowing anymore, but hey it's Upstate New York. Three bands came to Upstate Concert Hall and put on a hell of a show. The evening started out with the trio Tall Heights. The last time they came through it was at The Egg with Darlingside and I was really impressed with them. This time was no different. Their harmonizing is what bands strive to sound like live. Their songs sounded great in the larger space and they easily won over some new fans.
Colony House took the stage next and I can't believe how many times I have seen them in the past few years. The local radio station WEQX shows that a lot of love and they always make sure to stop in to the Albany area each tour. These guys absolutely rip live. If you want a band to rock out to this is the group to get to play for you. Their songs are catchy and it is only a matter of time until they are headlining tours like this themselves. They have only been getting better as a live act too on each tour.
Headlining the night was Judah and the Lion. These guys have a ton of energy and get the crowd as involved as I've seen one at a live show in recent memory. The whole band is constantly moving about and clearly having the best time on stage. While their music isn't my thing, I can appreciate the rock, hip hop, folk mash up thing that they do. A fun cover of The Killers hit single "Mr. Brightside" with some help from Colony House brought the house down. Enjoy some photos of the entire evening below.
