Video: The Love Language brings a big band to the Lincoln Theatre

Posted by on Mon, Nov 12, 2012 at 12:50 PM

The Lincoln Theatre hosted quite the three-band bill on Friday with The Love Language, Gross Ghost and The Toddlers. One act after another unveiled refreshing material, making this one of my favorite shows of the year.

The Toddlers offered a number of new songs, presumably from their upcoming Kickstarter-funded release. As they began to play the sparse "Starlight" in near total darkness, the crowd slowly began to quiet down behind the eerily perfect vocals of Nathan Toben. Gross Ghost barreled their way through 10 songs in just about 30 minutes; frontman Mike Dillon seems to be becoming more and more comfortable in front of larger crowds. The Love Language then closed the evening by bringing out a 10-piece band that included a string section and saxophone player. They ran through several new songs in the larger format, making the upcoming release of their third album seem that much more intriguing.

The three-band bill packed the Lincoln Theatre, and a sizable percentage of under-21 patrons injected additional energy into a bill already overflowing with it. Someone should send this trio on a nationwide tour.
