Mid-day at a music festival is a great time for Manchester Orchestra.
The indie rock band’s soaring songs, led by frontman Andy Hull’s emotive vocals and frenetic guitar, are a helluva way to get the energy level up.
I loved seeing them play Outlandia music festival’s second day, especially songs like Simple Math and Pride. Manchester Orchestra kept things amped up, even if the set’s last few songs slowed things down. That band does nothing quietly.
It was a fun set, and I was happy to see them on the festival’s second night.
