Saturday night was Tristan's birthday, and the Young Bombs debut headlining show in Vancouver. Having just returned from a nation wide tour with Adventure Club these two gentlemen were ready to bombard (see what we did there?) the crowd with pure energy. At one point an entire club ranging from 19 yr old bar stars to 30 something hipsters principally against Granville Street all belted out 'In the Jungle' like their sex lives depended on it. Amazing choice of switch up track.
This interview took place over a few pints and man hugs in the green room just before set time. Have to say, these two have the charisma to go places. Obviously the musical genius is there (have a listen) but there's more than that. You look at Alex and Drew of The Chainsmokers and you just kinda want to hang out with them while you listen to their new music... true, it would be amazing to hang out with pretty much any rock star - Kanye, Elton John, Sinead O'Connor - but that's just because they're rock stars. Even if Martin and Tristan were baristas in between jobs (it's complicated) we would be down to chill.
Amazing night. So down to support these two Vancouverites. And we might even have a new favourite venue. Big shot out to Young Bombs, Can I Live, and the Biltmore Cabaret for a glorious Saturday night. If you missed it, kick yourself.
