Local Natives/Blind Pilot @ T.T. The Bear's Place: 6/10/09

After scrambling to make plans for the two and a half hour drive up to Boston, the f/k crew was met with open arms by Local Natives upon arriving at T.T. The Bear's Place. The five-man, one-woman group didn't let the club's small stage stop them from putting on one hell of a live show. They always seemed to find a way to keep the audience on their toes and wondering how they could top the previous song, and they always did, leaving us longing for more as they left the stage.

Here's a song from their upcoming release, Gorilla Manor.

Here are two more pictures of Local Natives, click on them to see the full size version!

After Local Natives was Blind Pilot. Although we were there to see Local Natives, Blind Pilot took the stage to a packed house. They were smooth and crisp, proving why they were the headlining act for the night. It wasn't a show meant to get people dancing, but instead one that had people singing along as they enjoyed every strum of Israel Nebeker's guitar and every vibration of his vocal chords.

Overall, it was fantastic night. We look forward to seeing Local Natives and Blind Pilot again, and we recommend that you catch their show if they come to your town. If you see them, be sure to say hello to the guys from Local Natives, they're a fun group of down-to-earth guys that seem to be having the time of their lives.
