Prior to this concert, I had never listened to (or really heard anything about) Wolf Parade. The only reason I went was because my friend, George, had won a pair of tickets and was unable to attend.

Video Concert Review
I didn’t have a clue on what to expect from Wolf Parade. I knew that they were an indie rock band – that’s it. I arrived at the Wiltern about 20 minutes into the set, because a friend had to bail last minute causing me to find a replacement concert buddy. As soon as I walked in the door, I felt what I can only describe as a lack of energy. The crowd was dead, no one was dancing, singing along, or looking as if they were having any fun at all. I almost wanted to walk out of the venue right then and there.
I’m glad I didn’t leave at that point. About two songs after I walked in, Wolf Parade began rocking out, and the crowd went wild. I am not sure why everything was so melancholy when I first arrived, but Wolf Parade def rocked out for the remainder of the set.

I think Wolf Parade has a great Rock n’ Roll vibe, and put a lot of effort into their music. After seeing Wolf Parade live, I’m much more interested in their music and would strongly consider seeing them perform again. – lorn
