Black Crystal Wolf Kids, Weapons of Audio and Mind the Gap at The Bootleg Theatre

November 8th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

I know I’m a bit late on this review but on Halloween night, I was blessed to see three very talented music groups perform. It all went down at the Bootleg Theatre in Silver Lake. I saw the Black Crystal Wolf Kids, Weapons of Audio, and Mind the Gap kill it on stage. Everyone was in their costumes and it was a very great vibe f0r an awesome concert.

Black Crystal Wolf Kids are an indie rock cover band who impersonate many widely popular alternative rock groups with style. This group has a solid following and loves getting very involved with their crowds at their shows. They just love to enjoy themselves and joke around on stage which makes them even more legit. This show featured songs by the likes of Foster the People, MGMT and many others. My favorite was their cover of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”. They sounded so much like the real band. All I have is the live version for now but it is still very enjoyable. Check it out below.


Next up was Weapons of Audio, this was my third time seeing them live and though their drummer Grey couldn’t make it to this show, they still do an amazing job on stage. My favorite track of theirs live is one that has been at the top of my list for a while. Check out the future radio hit “Night Light” below.


Finally to cap off a great night of music came a very talented an unique band called Mind The Gap. The are an indie pop-rock band whose group members are a Korean, a Sri Lankan, a Mexican, and a Jew from Cleveland. Their stage presence was great an they even dressed up in costumes that matched their stereotypes and their response to it was “we are who we are”. Check out my favorite track of theirs below called “Once You Leave”. Enjoy!
