This Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, only gave me more to be thankful for because it was the first time I was able to catch a Ha Ha Tonka show. This has been a personal struggle for me as over the last couple years some conflict has always came up that has kept me from making it to their show. I was bound and determined to catch this band this time come hell or high water and I’m so glad I did! Below are some things I loved most about the show.
- The band to my surprise played a very wide variety of music from their catalog that spans across four different releases, I was very happy to hear so much from Death of a Decade because it is was made me fall in love with this band in the first place. They completely blew my mind with their latest release Lessons, and hearing them perform their material live further sold me on this group.
- About 5 songs in the band announced that the show was being recorded for a live release and it made everyone freak…it was AWESOME!
- Vocalist, Brett Anderson, is such a great frontman and the crowd could really see he was enjoying himself. This only adds to the intensity in the room and it was kind of magical to experience, it by far doesn’t happen enough at shows.
- All the members harmonized in a way that made you stop and just focus on what you were hearing. It really was almost better than their recordings.
- I will forever try to see this band live anytime I can.
