Since I was a teenager, Young the Giant has been atop my favorite bands to listen to crossing over into adulthood. Incorporating many spiritual and life lessons into their energetic music is the thing that has made the band a must listen in the alternative genre. Ever since their self-titled debut back in 2011, they have progressively matured their sound to great creations with recently dropping the Both Sides EP. To say that I was excited to see a band that has grown with me through out my life would be an understatement. I couldn't wait for what was to come in this sure to be memorable night at 713 Music Hall.
The set would start out with a cool intro video, leading into American Bollywood. After that, I felt something incredibly special was happening that night. Along the way, the set would have popular songs such as Something to Believe In and I Got. We were even treated to newer tracks such as Cult of Personality from their fifth studio album American Bollywood. The energy throughout the night was strong and present, which the band reciprocated with a highly energetic performance.
The spectacular show would end with two personal favorites of mine, Silvertongue and My Body which took me back to the first time I heard it in my teens. It all felt as meaningful as it did way back then and every person in the crowd reverberated the lyrics to the nostalgic song. 
This show was one that I felt a deep connection to for the ties it had to my youth. I find myself grateful for the entire experience that Young the Giant gave the audience and can bet that others felt the exact same.
