The UK indie rock guys from The Vaccines were definitely up for giving a show. They were very present as lead singer Justin Hayward-Young yelled to the audience ’How are you Northside?… You definitely all look hot today!’. And even though it was pretty chilly, The Vaccines made it possible to actually get to feel hot during their show.
With lovely and recognisable guitar riffs and nice beats in ‘Handsome’ as the opening track and later ‘Post Break-Up Sex’ they had people jumping around or at least bouncing a little too hard to keep the beer from spilling over.
Even in the back, people were cheering whenever a song had come to an end, showing the artists that they wanted even more.
‘Are you having a good time today!?’, Justin Young went, and the audience answered with applause throwing their arms in the air.
Then came another hit, ‘If You Wanna’ that kept the audience on their feet, inviting them to clap along and nearly every hand in the crowd did so. It was as if everything came together with every beat on the drums and with every hard guitar stroke. They really did bring true and reliable indie rock to the audience, who had been craving something like this the entire day.
After a pretty slow afternoon at Northside, this was just what we needed to get back on our feet!
