The London Music Hall was host to the infamous Eagles Of Death Metal on Sunday night, with Toronto band The Beaches opening things up.
It was my first time catching The Beaches live, and it did not disappoint. I have heard them all over the radio and had many others telling me to get to a show if I can. Well, it didn’t take long. Fronted by Jordan Miller, this all female foursome can really rock. With quite a resume already, I expect to continue to see these girls rise in the rock world. Playing a couple major festivals again this summer in Festival d’été de Québec and The Big Feastival. Check out their EP Heights, and new single Give It Up.
Eagles Of Death Metal
Energetic rock and rollers, the Eagles Of Death Metal dropped into London fresh off of their performance at Montebello Rock Fest the day before. Showing no signs of any lingering side effects from what was surely a massive party in Quebec, front man Jesse Hughes had the audiences full attention from the moment he stepped out in his silver cape. Jesse was engaging with everyone in the front row, reaching out shaking hands before any music even began. A true entertainer, Jesse and the entire band put on a show that everyone in the Music Hall will recount on for quite some time. Even as I ran around the venue grabbing photos from all sides on the floor and balcony, people were always up and thriving off of everything the EODM were pumping out. I didn’t come across anyone who seemed to be uninterested or not smiling, having a killer time. EODM continue to tour through October with one more Canadian date in Vancouver July 15th. Pick up their latest album Zipper Down here.
