Show Review: The Front Bottoms with Weatherbox

Posted by: Ryan Gardner (06/14/13)
Read our review of the June 11th Austin stop of The Front Bottoms "Talon Of The Hawk Tour" with Weatherbox here.
The quirkiness of the records transferred wonderfully to the live environment. People were stagediving, crowd surfing, running up on stage, spilling drinks, belting their lungs out. Handclaps and stomping galore occurred throughout the set. It was a mad house in a tiny room. Chaos of an environment mixed with the simplicity of the music. An unexpected match made in heaven? Not sure – but it worked. From the haunting ending of “Swimming Pool” through The Front Bottom’s true masterpiece that is “Twin Sized Mattress” and the song that probably made many of us fall in love with this band (“Flashlight”), the set was one for the books.

Too all the "Au Revoir" haters, hearing it live makes you take it back. It's fantastic when the whole room is into it. Also, the way you described the Austin audience was pretty much the same for the Phoenix show. Hope the Cali shows are just as great!

I am a huge Weatherbox fan, but "unbiased-ly" they are one of the tightest bands I've ever seen. Incredibly musicianship.

Regarding Frontbottoms, I fell in love about a year or two ago and ran the self-titled into the ground and got annoyed with them. But seeing them live, and especially getting to spend about 20 minutes hanging out with frontman Brian before the show reminded me of how awesome they are, and especially how real and down to earth guys they are. Just happy to have such a big and growing fan base. One of the things he said to me was it still blows his mind seeing this many kids come out and how humbling it is.

Awesome review for 2 great great bands man!
