I’m almost never compelled to buy the CD of an opening support band. Usually, their music might be decent enough but it isn’t more than a warming up. I’ve seen more than enough opening bands make a complete failure of themselves on stage so I’ve come to expect little of them.
Hence I was very pleasantly surprised by the musical gem that’s called Safemode! Halfway during their first song I had to admit that I loved it! Actually,I happen to think they’re the definite winner of the evening but let’s leave that to the concert reviewer. I’ve never seen such a solid musical presentation before in an opening band – an engaging stage presentation, great music – well done guys!
