Alt-rock combo Silversun Pickups performance at the Commodore Ballroom on Friday Feb 16th 2024 with openers Hello Mary, and it was the 7th stop on the current tour in support of the 2022 album Physical Thrills.

The band consists of Brian Aubert (vocals, guitar), Nikki Monninger (bass, vocals), Joe Lester (keyboards) and Christopher Guanlao (drums).

I was told by a friend that I gotta check out this band live as they were her fave. I wasn’t too familiar with their music but have enjoyed listening to them on many occasion, and in particular the latest release showing the great songwriting from the band.  

By the reaction from the audience, they were singing along to their faves and thoroughly enjoying the bands performance who mix slightly thrash’s pop with shoe gaze. With lots of fog, excessive at times imo, but everyone were there for the music and just put that aside. The band delivered and the audience enjoyed it. That is what counts, isn’t it.
