The Silent Comedy live at The Roxy

Talk about talent. Saturday night I was fortunate enough to see Southern California indie rockers The Steelwells and The Silent Comedy at The Roxy Los Angeles. I knew and heard very little from each artist and left with my hands red from all the clapping I did, continually feeling so grateful to witness great performances from these artists who have easily become two of my favorite SoCal rock groups. Here’s my review on The Silent Comedy:

After hearing great things about The Silent Comedy from various people at the show, I had sort of high expectations. Well, The Silent Comedy with their saloon rock style, surpassed my expectations putting out a high energy rocking show with fans constantly dancing or singing along to almost all their tunes.

Again, this is a group you need to see live to appreciate, especially as their set was much longer than I expected, constantly entertaining the crowd with their upbeat energy. Here’s my 3 favorites including a recent track they released, “Victory”.
The Silent Comedy – Bartholomew
The Silent Comedy – Footnotes
The Silent Comedy – Victory
If you like the above songs, I recommend checking out The Silent Comedy‘s album, Common Faults, and following them on facebook and twitter.
