Just Friends bring their unique blend of ska and pop punk to Brooklyn Bazaar

They’re not ska, they’re not pop punk; Just Friends is their own entity of music.

Over the past years, the San Francisco based band has embarked a long journey of building a fanbase out of their unique sound. On Friday night at NYC’s Brooklyn Bazaar, the house was packed and raging from the moment the gang hit the stage.

The night kicked off with a variety of different bands who joined them on their first headlining tour. Hotline TNT, The Sounder Bombs, and Save Face set the atmosphere before Just Friends came out to close up the night.

During their set, the group had showcased all of their hits like ‘Supersonic’ and ‘I Wanna Love You”. They also included their newest single ‘Stupid’.

It being my first time experiencing a Just Friend’s show, I had a general idea of what energy the band would bring to the crowd but not to the extend shown across the floor. As each member belted out with their instruments and vocals, the sea of fans transformed into a compete war zone. The band strutted, jumped, danced, crawled, and even crab walked across the stage while the crowd reacted with mutual energy in their full impact mosh pit.

It was a special sight, sound, and feeling to experience a group of people who love each other so much, share their abundance of love through their music.

The band continues now on their headlining tour traveling south and eventually wrapping up their journey in the Midwest. Check out their tour dates here.
