Back in 2013, I made a blog post about the first concert that I ever attended: Two Door Cinema Club. It was such an iconic and special night for me and after the show, I promised myself that I would see them again, but next time in the GA pit. Well, almost three years later in April 2017, that wish finally came true at the Santa Barbara Bowl!
The opener for that night was Grouplove, who I only knew for their songs Photograph and Tongue Tied. Still, the band had a very unique, charismatic and loving energy. Everything that they played felt so intimate yet fun! When they played Tongue Tied, the whole bowl was screaming the lyrics in unison, making it feel like one big close knit event.
And of course, these guys. Two Door Cinema Club had as much energy as I remember, if not more! I have to admit, I didn't listen much to their latest album,
The photo and video are of "Changing of the Seasons", one of my favorite songs from them.
The lighting and design of the stage was so amazing! There were extra backdrops and effects to compliment each song played. It felt incredible; almost as if we were being absorbed by the music.
I had such a wonderful time watching Two Door Cinema Club again after so long! It had been a while since I listened to them consistently and I was especially worried since I hadn't completely listened to Gameshow yet, but the band played so many classics from Tourist History and Beacon. Of course, their encore was What You Know and it ended the concert with a bang. I hope to see them very, very soon because my love has been reignited!
