I know you think I'm going to say, Imagine Dragons were AWESOME! Well, you're wrong. They were BEYOND AWESOME! It was amazeballs - they killed it. They play with SO much energy and passion, They are super fun to watch and we were bummed when their segment of concert time was over. We could have listened to them all night.
We were right up front for the concert. The stage is really small at Mississippi Studios and so with the setup, we could see Wayne and Dan perfectly, part of Daniel but could only see the top of Ben's head.
The photos were taken with my small pocket camera, no flash and dim lights. I don't even care that they are blurry. Even if the lighting was brighter, they'd still be blurry because I couldn't hold still the whole time they played.
Benjamin Francis Leftwich opened first. His songs were mellow and some of the lyrics were interesting, not sure what inspired some of the songs, but overall we liked him. He was really funny.
The Jezabels were the headliners. They were good, but to be honest, they should have been opening up for Imagine Dragons. No joke.
