Two of my favorite new bands, Walt Disco and The Ninth Wave played an epic show together this past weekend at Heartbreakers in Southampton. It was my first time at the venue and seeing both bands and I couldn’t have been more excited to get there. Heartbreakers is an incredibly intimate venue that reminded me of some of my favorite venues in Philly.
Walt Disco took the stage and the five piece from Glasgow blew my mind. The drama, the passion, the theatre, the GLAMOUR. I wasn’t ready really. I thought I was ready but I wasn’t…I couldn’t stop smiling. It is an absolute necessity to your life to see this band live. Seriously. Their set was energizing and electrifying. They’re a band that once you see them, there’s no going back. You’ll want to go on tour with them and see them live every day if possible. Do they need a roadie? Does their manager need an assistant? Give me a call. I’m ready now.

In some cruel twist of fate, Walt Disco’s next show sold-out before it was even announced (naturally but also cool cool cool…). Sneak in with us on July 24th at Rye Wax in Peckham. UPDATE: Walt Disco are also playing a FREE show at Old Blue Last June 28th with PIXX!!! Secure your free tickets via DICE here.

Closing out the show was another one of my favorite new bands, The Ninth Wave. I’ve been trying to see this band live for a few months now and kept missing them, so naturally I hightailed it to Southampton because this lineup could not be missed.
The Ninth Wave are one of those bands I just can’t get enough of. I love every song they’ve released so far so seeing these tracks come to life in front of my eyes turned into an epic dance workout for me. I love the way the band interacted with each other throughout the show and they genuinely looked like they were having the best time and most fun playing together. That sheer joy flooded out to the crowd who got down during the entire set. The Ninth Wave have released the their debut album Infancy and you can purchase this epic album in two parts on a gorgeous red and blue vinyl (or CD/Download) here!!!
