Tuney Tuesday: Young the Giant in Concert

Happy Tuesday everyone. Since I didn’t post a Music Monday yesterday, let’s call today Tuney Tuesday. My friend Brandon and I went and saw Young the Giant in concert last night, and they were so fun.

Dat lighting doe.

Dat lighting doe.

I blogged about Young the Giant last year in this post, so obviously I am a fan. I have wanted to see them in concert for a while, so back in December when I heard they were coming to Indianapolis, I made my mind up to go. Coincidentally, a few weeks later, the band tweeted something saying they would give away free tickets to one random person who retweeted them. Since I love the Internet and was already planning on going, I retweeted them, and ended up winning. It was really random and unexpected since I don’t usually win things, but I was pumped that my tickets were free, plus they tweeted at me congratulating my win (I’m kind of a big deal).

The show was at the Egyptian Room, which has proven to be my go-to place for concerts in Indy. My friend Sam has seen Young the Giant before and told me that they were great live, and they were. They had really cool purple and yellow lights going the whole time, and the lead singer danced and grooved throughout the whole show. He danced a bit each time before he sang, so it kind of looked like he was working the notes through his whole body; it was cool. Also, one of the guitar players bopped around the stage the whole time, which was fun. They were all so into what they were playing and clearly enjoyed it. They also sounded fantastic! Probably even better than on their CDs. I would definitely see them again, and one hundred percent recommend their show to anyone who is a fan.

Have a great rest of the night, and thanks for reading :)

Music Monday: Young the Giant

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week. For this Music Monday I will be talking about a band called Young the Giant. Young the Giant is an American Indie-Rock band that got together in California back in 2004. The band was formerly known as The Jakes, but changed their name late in 2009. The members of the band include Sameer Gadhia, Jacob Tilley, Eric Cannata, Payam Doostzadeh, and Francois Comtois.

The band released their debut album, Young the Giant, back in January 2011, but had recorded a few extended plays prior to this release. Young’s first two singles, My Body and Cough Syrup, were both placed in the top five on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart. The band also performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2011 and is currently finishing up a tour. Fun fact, their song My Body is presently being featured on a commercial for Corona Beer (I tried to find a clip of the commercial but I couldn’t. Sorry!). Another fun fact about that song: It is one of Colbie Caillat’s favorite songs! I saw her in concert over the summer and the guy who opened for her sang it because she loves it!

I absolutely love their sound and how their songs are mellow but catchy at the same time. Anyhoo, here are a couple of songs by Young the Giant. I hope you enjoy them! Happy Monday and thanks for reading :)

P.S. Any Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros fans, they are playing next Sunday at 7:30 at the Egyptian Room in Indianapolis! Here’s the ticket info for anyone interested!
