02.28.15 Enter Shikari Live

Enter Shikari Live

Saw Enter Shikari live last night at the Roundhouse in Camden. Was the last night of the tour, and they put on a hell of a show. Fatherson, Allusondrugs and Feed The Rhino were the supports
I Am an Island

These guys came on first and were pretty good. Vocalist was excellent and came on later to sing Dear Future Historians (greatly improving it tbh). Enjoyable but a tiny bit bland. 3.5/5

Weird alt rock/shoegaze/grunge band that were surprisingly good. Singer looked like he was on drugs the whole time and was spazzing out for most the time. Got better as they went along and had a sick bassist. 4/5

The Sorrow And The Sound

Utter shite, Everything blended together into a indiscernible mesh of noise. A few moments where i could actually make out what the guitars were doing but for the most part it was crap. 2/5

The Mindsweep

They played more songs off this than i expected, playing Torn Apart, The Appeal and the Mindsweep (as their opener which was brilliant), Anaesthetist, The Last Garrison, Myopia, Dear Future Historians and Slipshod. Slip shod was probably the best out of these and the most suited for a live show. GET ME THE MANAGERRRRR

Dear Future Historians was surprisingly good as the Fatherson vocalist came on and sang most of it with Rou (who was struggling a bit by this point).

Take to the Skies

Only played Mothership off of this which sucked as I still havent seen them play Sorry You're Not A Winner.

Not that Mothership sucked, cos it was probs the best song off the night. That first synth bit came on and everyone went ballistic. I got pulled down to the floor several times during the "Walk the plank" breakdown. Got a sore throat from screaming the beginning. Best Song.

Rat Race

played Radiate and Paddington Frisk. Radiate is brilliant live, really anthemic. frisk was over so quickly it was just eh

they should of played rat race
7Enter Shikari
A Flash Flood of Colour

Played Stalemate, which i thought was a weird choice as they already played Dear Future Historians (it may of been the other way around). Juggernauts remix (another weird choice imo and i dont really remember much), Gandhi Mate, Gandhi which being such a crazy song was great live even if i dont listen to it much anymore. Sssnakepit remix as the closer for the night which was fucking mental. The "we're nice guys UNTIL WE'RE NOOOOOT" breakdown was probably the crux of the night.

Overall, 10/10 would shikari again
