Live Review: Wolfmother and Electric Citizen at The Observatory 7/27/14

There’s always electricity in the air when Aussie group Wolfmother come through town. It was almost exactly one year ago that the trio leveled Orange County at The Observatory and fans were ready for more.

Along with Wolfmother, Ohio’s Electric Citizen knocked the wind out of the audience, powered by Laura Dolan’s searing vocals. Not only did Dolan’s voice leave a mark, but her entire presence was larger than life. There’s no doubt that Electric Citizen was rolling off everyone’s tongue by the end of the night.

While their last performance in Orange County was fueled by the band’s triumphant return under the moniker Wolfmother, this show was tight and just a slick as ever. Frontman Andrew Stockdale has an immense power over the audience, rallying them into a frenzy. Bassist/keyboardist Ian Peres and drummer Vin Steele propel Stockdale’s licks to new proportions.
