House of Blues- Anaheim, CA

In the true spirit of Halloween, the Danish pop punk trio, New Politics brought all of their tricks and treats to a sold-out House of Blues Anaheim. The trio, known for their hit singles, Yeah Yeah Yeah and Harlem, delivered a 19-song set that had the members and their road crew dressed in Halloween costumes that New PoliticsIMG_1401were very fitting, but also created quite the perspiration as the set went on. Singer/guitarist Soren Hansen joked with the crowd that it was “the worst we’ve ever had” as he donned his pink furry animal costume. During the 19-song set, New Politics performed a healthy mix of their 2010 debut and its 2013 successor that opened with Tonight You’re Perfect which put the sold-out crowd intensity level already in overdrive that led into Berlin. A cover of the Beastie Boys hit Sabotage, Everywhere I Go off the forthcoming 2015 record Vikings and the set closer Harlem kept the crowd going well into the 75-minute performance. Lead singer, David Boyd was on fire from the beginning to the end showcasing his break dancing skills and energetic performance, while posing multiple times for the photographers who covered the show.
Los Angeles natives, Bad Suns contributed to the Halloween spirit as each member wore respective Halloween face paint and masks. Singer Christo Bowman captivated the young female fans screaming for him as Bad Suns performed a brief performance of material from their 2014 Vagrant Records debut, Language & Perspective.
