[LIVE] Japandroids @ The Echo, June 15th, 2012

♫ Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built

Th story goes that Japandroids had basically quit being a band in late 2008, right before a surge in Internet attention got them to give it one last go. Cheers to you, Internet, I owe you one. Watching Brian and David rip through their set on Friday night was a sight (and sound) to behold. One guitar, one drum kit, two voices, and the two absolute beasts controlling them all. I haven’t seen that kind of overflowing passion pour out of a band on stage in years. And crowd gave back. There was moshing, stage diving, crowd surfing, and electric sing alongs throughout. Do not miss these guys live.
