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

    I was there too. It’s because their new stuff just isn’t as good….as soon as they played one of their older songs, everyone went wild, because that’s what they came to see. That’s how I felt, at least. Haha
