Young the Giant: "Home of the Strange Tour"

Friday, September 15, 2017 - 7:00pm to 11:00pm

Location: Festival Pier

Young the Giant live up to their name with a youthful exuberance and a larger-than-life sound that blends intelligent pop hooks with alternative rock quirks. When he’s not headbanging along to the instrumental breaks, charismatic frontman Sameer Gadhia croons his catchy melodies and brings his songs to life with inimitable energy. While he provides the band's soulful pop foundation, dueling guitarists Eric Cannata and Jacob Tilley envelope listeners in the ambient soundscapes that they conjure with their echoing riffs. Bassist Payam Doostzadeh and drummer Francois Comtois hammer out driving rhythms to bring a furious rock edge to the band’s sound. In concert, the group combines all these elements to hypercharge already electric hits like “Cough Syrup”, “My Body”, and “It’s About Time”.
