On Thursday, I attended the sold-out concert of indie rock band Walk the Moon, who performed at The Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood.
As I was making line to enter the concert, I couldn’t help but notice that most of the people attending the concert were either teens or people in their early 20s. Most of the concertgoers creatively donned colorful war paint, a huge staple of the band. In the music video for “Anna Sun” the band cover themselves in paint.
The opening band was named The Griswolds, I have never heard of them until that day and honestly they weren’t bad at all. The songs they performed were extremely catchy, reminiscent of the music from the band MGMT.
Walk the Moon performance was one of the best I have ever seen. The band opened with the song “Different Colors”, a very upbeat song that complimented the vibrant lighting of the venue. The best surprise of the night was that the band covered the Killers’ “All These Things That I’ve Done.” My favorite band in the whole world is The Killers. So to see another band who I adore, cover one of their song just left me shocked and breathless.
Overall the band was amazing live, I was dancing and singing along for the whole set. They ended the night with the first song that made them famous, “Anna Sun” the whole crowd went wild and it was the perfect way to end the set. By the end of the concert, I was left sweaty and tired but if I could I would definitely relive this concert again.
