Run Whirlwind Run- Seeing The Naked and Famous live

20140311-112904.jpgI have nothing, but rave reviews The Naked and Famous concert at the Cleveland House of Blues last night.   I had listened to a few songs from the opening band, Gemini Club, but they were fabulous live. They really got the crowd going for a Monday night and definitely made me a fan. I’m sure they gained quite a few new fans from last nights concert. They were a great opener for TNAF.

The Naked and Famous had an amazing set. Their live performance was one of the best I have ever seen and they sounded unbelievable. The relationship between lead singer, Alisa Xayalith & Guitar player/co-lead singer, Thom Powers, made the performance that much better. The charisma that the two of them had made the performance very real and unstaged. Not to mention Xayalith is the cutest little singer and really helped the crowd connect to the band and vice versa. The overall charisma between the band members was great and made the performance that much better to watch. They are all extremely talented, which was quite apparent in their musical ability. As a huge Kings of Leon fan, I couldn’t help, but think that the bass player, David Beadle, looked like a young Caleb Followill. The entire set was great and I can honestly say I don’t think they missed one song that I really wanted to hear.

This was my first concert at the HOB and I will most definitely be attending more. Seeing bands like Naked and Famous before they really make it big was great and Naked and Famous will definitely be a big name one day. Hopefully when they do make it big they will make a return to Cleveland for another outstanding performance.

I know I’m nothing, but an amateur photographer with an Iphone, but here are some of the pictures from last night.

I swear he looks just like Caleb Followill




Live your life, find your happiness

Live your life, find your happiness

One of the things I frequently find myself doing as I am becoming my own adult is doing things that I think will please my parents, family or even society. I found this quote today and it made me think that there are so many things that decide our lives for us. We are constantly trying to prove something to someone when we should be living the life we want to live and for ourselves only.
