Rowdy took a new form Thursday night at Tremont in Charlotte, North Carolina. Junior Astronomers is known for putting on a wild show, and they did not disappoint. Joining the stage was Atlanta’s Lazer/Wulf, Charlotte’s Air Station, and a last minute change added Charlotte’s Mon Frere. Manray was scheduled to play, but due to complications, they could not make it. Luckily, the guys from Mon Frere were there to see the show and gladly took the stage to play.
Charlotte’s The Air Station is like a mix between Anberlin and Taking Back Sunday. Their pop rock sound is mixed with fast guitar riffs and drums. The vocals are soft and melodic, creating music that is easily relatable to people in this day and age.
Mon Frere brought a harder sound to the night. The band is made up of 3 guys from Charlotte, North Carolina. To only have a couple minutes to put together a set list and perform, they did a great job, pushing a nu-metal sound with an emphasis on hardcore bass lines and screaming lyrics.
Lazer/wulf is another 3 piece hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. These three guys are extremely talented and make creating one unanimous sound look easy. Thursday was the first time I had ever seen them. I had heard so many things about this band, particularly how amazing they were to watch. They were indeed just that. The drums are insane, constantly changing, and filled with double bass. The bass is full and boisterous, adding ear shaking notes. The guitar is technical and straightforward metal. The energy on stage was huge and the crowd soaked up every minute of their set.
Watching Junior Astronomers is always a fun filled show. Lead singer, Terrence Richard, is dancing around everywhere, jumping on the drums, and even into the crowd. This was their last show in the Carolinas for awhile, so they put on a heartfelt, heavy show. Junior Astronomers sound is gritty and playful with an indie punk style. When they played “Settle Down,” everyone in the crowd went wild dancing and singing the lyrics. These guys are all about making sure everyone in the venue is up on their feet, loving the music and enjoying the night to the fullest. If you get a chance to see JA, do not hesitate to go up to them after the show to chat and have a couple drinks with them.
Overall Thursday night’s show was fun and filled with talented musicians more than willing to put on a wild show for everyone there.
