Brooklyn, NY band American Authors graced the 303’s own Larimer Lounge last night as the opener for Lousiana indie rock band Royal Teeth.
Where have you been all my life? That’s all I have to say. These guys have amazing chemistry.
American Authors put on a show that was passion-loaded and one hundred percent awesome. I was dancing and singing along side stage - and so was everyone else. Simply the way they interact with one another on stage makes them a force to be reckoned with.
They bring a unique sound to indie rock. With banjo riffs and animated drum beats, they don’t perform songs - they perform anthems. Their music is relatable and honest, and that’s much more than most bands can give you these days. They are a refreshing act to witness as they allow equal contribution from all of the members. They exude appreciation and humility - and they totally rock. Seriously. I don’t know what’s wrong with you if you don’t want to dance your ass off when you hear these guys.
I had the pleasure of chatting with the boys before they played - and believe me, they are just as lovely and genuine as their music makes them out to be. Enjoy getting to know Zac, Dave, Matt, and James of American Authors - and keep your eyes peeled for their first full length album coming out soon!
