Kicking off the evening were Toronto natives, Valley. This was the band's first time playing in Texas, but you would have never known by just how many people in the crowd were singing along to all the songs. The member's were decked out in NASA gear from their trip to the Space Center Houston earlier in the day and played an out of this world set full of songs from their recent summer release Maybe: Side B, as well as many other indie-pop fueled tunes. Every member of Valley had infectious energy from the moment their set started and kept it alive for the entire performance. Constant smiles, dancing, crowd interaction-- this is the perfect kind of opener, and I have no doubts this band will be playing many of their own headlining shows in the future.
Soon after Valley closed out their set, the lights went down, and it was time for the main attraction. Coming out to an intro song of the hit children's classic, "Banana Phone" by Raffi was an odd choice but succeeded in getting the crowd singing along and amped up before the band took the stage. The Band CAMINO made their entrance in a big way-- smoke, phenomenal lights and high energy from the second they stepped on stage. The band played through a stacked nearly 20 song set list to a packed room of die hard fans that could not get enough. The band recently released their new EP, "tryhard," at the end of August this year and played every track from that album as well as classic older tunes from their catalog.
Unfortunately, this tour only has a few dates left on it, so if you are lucky enough to be located near the next few stops, make sure you run out to support both of this amazing bands.
