A Beautiful Day With the Neighbourhood

Last year, I was attending a Paul Banks show at the House of Blues, when a relatively unknown opener took the stage. The band was the Neighbourhood, and though there was maybe one recognizable track I'd heard on the radio, the crowd was mostly indifferent when they hit the stage. The performance, however, was somewhat mesmerizing, and I had that feeling you get when you know a band is going places.

Fast forward nearly a year later, and the band is performing to a sold out crowd on the very same stage. Anybody who tells you that radio has no sway, that it doesn't "move the needle," is jaded and should be ignored. The needle has certainly moved for the Neighbourhood and perhaps their openers, Lovelife and Ghost Loft, will share the same fate in a year from now. Nobody can truly predict any band's trajectory, but I will say for these guys: I totally called it.
