Walk the Moon – Live at the Ogden Theater

I’ve heard a lot of hoopla about the live shows put on by Walk the Moon, and I was very much looking forward to this concert. Throw The Mowgli’s and Smallpools into the mix and holy hell what a lineup. Both openers were fantastic and did a great job pumping up the crowd with their charismatic and joyful sets. So much so in my case that I couldn’t help but be disappointed once Walk the Moon took the stage.

It’s not that they’re bad live, they have pretty lights and sound almost exactly like their record. But unfortunately I don’t go to live shows to hear bands sound just like their record. I want to see and experience how much a band loves playing their music for a theater full of fans that love it even more. I just didn’t get that from Walk the Moon. It looked cool and sounded good, but by the end of their set I was a bored bystander. We left before the encore and I went home and immediately booked tickets for The Mowgli’s next show at The Gothic. You can bet I’ll be seeing Smallpools the next time they roll through town too.
