I wasn’t going to review this concert. I wasn’t even going to go see The Poster Children, but I got free tickets, and how can you refuse that. I tell you, it was definitely worth the price, maybe even double! The Poster Children are long-time indie rockers. They have been together for more than 12 years, and that’s a long time for a rock band. And these guys are still good!
This band has some of the sound of the mid-80s college bands like X or the B-52s, but they’ve obviously modernized their sound. They play catchy rocking and sometimes anthemic songs that make you want to bounce and sing a long. My two favorite PC songs are “All for One” and “Junior Citizen,” and they played both, so I was most enthused!
The bassist with the PCs has a lot of energy. With her floppy, curly hair, she bounced all over the stage, despite sound troubles. The singer played hard and sang hard the entire show. The drums, now they were impressive. Lots of great driving drum rhythms!
All in all, an excellent show. Check out this band if you get the chance. Openers were, yet again, Acrobat Down. I like ‘em, but I’ve seen them enough now.
