Angels & Airwaves bring Lifeforms to life in New York City



It is never hard to find something fun to do on a Saturday night in New York City, and an Angels & Airwaves concert is certainly a fun option to have. This past weekend, we caught Angels & Airwaves (or AVA) play a sold-out show at Hammerstein Ballroom. They released their fifth album (and their first LP in seven years) Lifeforms, just over a month ago, and have been rocking cities across the United States ever since, bringing friends My Kid Brother and Bad Suns.

Opening the show My Kid Brother showcased their unique blend of indie rock to the mesmerized audience. While few people knew the songs, they definitely won over many new fans by the end of the night.

Next up were California indie-rockers Bad Suns. We’ve been a fan of them ever since their first LP, Language and Perspective, and were excited to see them again for the first time in nearly four years. They are releasing a new album titled Apocalypse Whenever on January 28th and are always a pleasure to see live. The audience was captivated by their set, which included songs from all three of their albums.

Finally, it was time for AVA. They opened up their set with “Kiss & Tell” before playing an energetic, lively performance with a ton of personality from frontman Tom Delonge. Their set was filled with songs from all of their albums and Delonge did quite a bit of storytelling between songs about what the band and their work meant to him. The band sounded incredible and everyone could sense the raw emotion coming from both the band members and the audience – who ranged in age from children brought to the concert with their parents, to adults over 50. They closed out their set with “Heaven”, a crowd favorite from their second album, I-Empire.
