Saturday April 17th was a date I’d been looking forward to for quite awhile. I Am the Avalanche were headlining a soldout show at Webster Hall that night and they just happen to be one of my favorite bands. Like any band I’m excited to see, I’d been listening to them almost constantly for the previous week when I had the chance.

the excitement & anticipation was building...

The day dragged on but 8pm finally rolled around and it was time for me to meet Jules in Williamsburg to pick up some drinks at Turkeys Nest before a short trip on the L train over to Union Square. By the time we made it past the 80s disco upstairs and downstairs into the concert venue there was just enough time to stake out the perfect spot near the stage before IATA took the stage. I have to admit, I was pretty excited and I’m pretty sure I sang the words to every song, bar the new ones they played.

Despite not playing very frequently as a full band, and not having released a full length album since 2005, the fans went crazy. Most of the show the crowd were singing over the top of the band and the crowd surfers didn’t stop the entire set. IATA’s set drew heavily from their self-titled album, including ‘I Took a Beating’, ‘This is Dungeon Music’ and ‘My Second Restraining Order’, as well as three songs that will be on their new album, hopefully coming out sometime this summer.

Check out the video below of ‘Green Eyes’ and the photos from the show below.

They finally took the stage!

Oh hai there I Am the Avalanche
