On July 5 I was fortunate enough to catch indie rock group, Bad Suns, at Vinyl in Atlanta. The dedicated fans had already formed a line outside the venue hours before the doors even opened with some fans even claiming that this was their fourth or fifth time seeing the group.
The show began with an emotional performance by local Atlanta band, LONER. The 6-piece band gave off some La Dispute vibes with haunting lyrics that sent chills down my spine. With powerful vocals and beautiful instrumentals, LONER delivered a beautiful start to the show.
As the lights dimmed and Bad Suns entered the stage, the familiar sound of excitement filled my ears. The rock group delivered an exciting set, with the lead singer making multiple efforts to connect with fans: Climbing on walls, holding fans’ hands, you name it. The band even played new music, but not without telling everyone to put their phones away first. Their set had me Dancing on Quicksand with their exciting vibes. Bad Suns’ new album, Disappear Here, is set to come out Sept. 16, and after seeing their live presence I am definitely excited to hear what they have next.
