The Hunna, Coasts and Courtship sell out The Bowery Ballroom for a high-energy, passion-filled show

The Hunna performed at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City last month. The rescheduled April performance concluded their 2018 US tour, which began in early March. With a line outside the venue before doors were set to open, it was clear that fans had long awaited the rescheduled show.

People filed into the venue rushing to the front of the stage quite quickly. The sold-out show packed eager fans excited for both openers Courtship. and Coasts. From the start of Courtship. ’s set it was clear that it was going to be an amazing night.

I remember seeing Los Angeles duo, Courtship., open up for Urban Cone at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn in February of 2017. Seeing them again at the Bowery Ballroom was crazy to witness, especially considering that the first time I had seen them was supposedly their first “real” show. Flash forward to April, and the duo was touring with The Hunna and had just released a new single titled, “Bad Fun.” The show was a bit of a sneak peek with the mention of an album in the works ready for release in May. Their new album “Denial in Paradise,” dropped on May 11th. It was exciting hearing their new songs live. After listening to the album, I would say that I prefer their live sound. Their music is upbeat and exuberant regardless, but their stage presence and liveliness are what really sells.

Coasts

After an energetic performance from Courtship., British, indie band Coasts took the stage. As a fan of Coasts music since the release of their first single, “Stay” in 2012, it was super exciting to see the band perform the songs I became so attached to over the course of high school, live. It was a bit of a fangirl moment for me when the band got on stage. After seeing their tour videos and listening to their newer album, “This Life, Vol.1” on repeat over the past year, seeing them in person was surreal. This feeling carried on to The Hunna’s set. It was like I was in a dream seeing these bands perform after listening and following them for so long. The Hunna was just as amazing as I had imagined. Their performance was sensational, loud, and fun.

Unlike the cool, grooving alternative nature of Coasts’ music, The Hunna’s music being louder and more upbeat sparked a fire of raw emotions. All members of the crowd were either jumping, head banding, and or dancing. Some doing all three at once. To end the night the band played their hit single “Bonfire.” Before the band had a chance to leave the stage, their manager who was watching from side stage the entire show, came up to congratulate the boys on a successful tour. He mentioned how the night was a celebration of the band’s journey and how “Bonfire” was what started it all, suggesting that they perform the song once more. Similar to the first time the song was performed, the crowd sang along but this time louder. It was emotional for both the band and members of the crowd, and a lovely ending to a night filled with excitement, passion, and great music.
