The Joy Formidable at Mayan Theater, March 14, 2012

The main event that night was The Joy Formidable, a Welsh band that has been consistently getting bigger and bigger especially after the release of The Big Roar. Once the three came out on stage, they projected such a strong stage presence as a band that it was easy to get sucked into the excitement that filled the theater. Ritzy, Rhydian, and Matt looked and sounded like legitimate rockstars. The pretty elaborate production design that went into the show (they had a gong, a lighthouse, and some really gorgeous lights) perfectly accompanied the great sound that came from the trio. It was one hell of a show that surely made both fans and new listeners alike happy to have been there.

Some of my favorite things are beef jerky, bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, pistachios (aka the nut of the gods), my husband's face, and coffee.
