A week ago I had the pleasure of attending The Front Bottoms//Basement//Bad Bad Hats show in Charlotte at The Fillmore. Not only are The Front Bottoms my FAV band, but I love Bad Bad Hats as well and really enjoyed Basement’s set.
Pop-punk, folk-punk, and indie rock are the genres I would say encapsulate TFB, and while normally at a show like this I’m nervous the crowd might be too rowdy or filled with some unsavory characters, however I’m pleased to say everyone there was more than polite, had a great energy, and were respectful to everyone attending! From the distance I watched as people glided over the crowd, surfing up to the front where security kindly grasped them like a mother would hold a newborn baby and safely took them to the side of the stage where many surfers made their way to the back to do it all again.
The nearly sold-out show was one of the best I’ve been to recently, and each set had me dancing away in the photo pit between snapping some of these excellent photos below:
This was definitely a show you should be sad you missed, as the chorus of voices singing along to Brian’s vocals mimicked angels, stage banter from the bands produced more than your average chuckles, and the tears of joy ran down my cheeks.
If you like these photos and want to hear more coverage of shows, let us know! We’d also love to hear from you about your favorite shows.
