My first show of 2015 brought me out to the recently opened Regent Theater in Downtown Los Angeles where Cardiff’s own Until the Ribbon Breaks were set to play along with Run the Jewels. Until the Ribbon Breaks started the night off with their glitchy R&B and impressive visuals that scream Los Angeles. Mastermind and frontman, Pete Lawrie-Winfield played a musical chairs of sorts with different instruments throughout the night. He brought his music to life with the help of James Gordon and Elliot Wall who similarly played more than one instrument at a time. The sound alone made it seem like there were at least five people on stage when in reality it was three dudes packing that strong of an audio punch. These guys are doing some impressive things so you’ll want to keep tabs on them for sure. They’ll be hitting the road with London Grammar in the next few weeks, so ears and eyes open my friends! By the time Run the Jewels hit the stage the crowd was over the brim with excitement. Within seconds the entire crowd was in motion while Killer Mike and El-P stormed the stage. Their energy was infectious and their delivery was flawless. Clearly, the duo is at the top of their game and after a show like this one, it doesn’t come as a surprise that they’re on everyone’s radar.
