Japandroids at Bluebird Theater, 11/18/12


Brian King said that while he and David Prowse had had a blast at the Larimer Lounge this past June, they were going to do even better tonight he declared. As promised, the pair proceeded to do just that with every single one of the seventeen songs of their set with a display of raw power and passion the likes of which you almost never see. Appropriately enough the show got off the ground with "Adrenaline Nightshift."
