Joywave played next, owning the crowd with their electronic sensibility and mustached lead singer. Their radio hit, “Tongues” was the highlight of the set with it’s catchy beat. They also played two new songs from their upcoming album, as they have so far only released an EP. Another popular hit was “Somebody New” and ensured that their presence in the music industry would be a long lasting one.
Obviously, the best was saved for last as Bleachers shook the crowd with its 80’s drum-heavy dramatic tune. Lead singer Jack Antonoff of Fun. and Steel Train was a seasoned veteran bantering with the crowd and introducing all of his fellow band mates. He moved with confidence across the stage and played the guitar with ease. Eager for more, the crowd called for an encore and eager to please Bleachers played “I Wanna Get Better” the feel good anthem and their most well known song. “Rollercoaster,” “Wild Hearts,” and a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” also made a lasting impression on the fans. Playing their first headline show in San Diego, the deafening cheers of the crowd insured that it would definitely not be their last.
