We Are The In Crowd – The Mod Club – Toronto Live Review

We Are The In Crowd, The Mod Club, February 23, 2014

Who: We Are The In Crowd
From: Poughkeepsie, New York, USA
Where: The Mod Club
When: Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

Total Score: 8.4/10

Style: pop-punk. Comparable to bands like Paramore and All Time Low.

The crowd was very enthusiastic during We Are The In Crowd’s set. There was no shortage of dancing or singing along. The Mod Club did not have any barricades to separate the fans from the band, increasing the level of intimacy. Fans eagerly grabbed for the hand of vocalist Tay Jardine as she held it out over the crowd. The audience was mixed, primarily consisting of young teenage girls to older guys who were there to mosh and even started circle pits, providing for an interesting combination when the two were put together.

The pop-punk image of the New York quintet did not go unnoticed during their set. Dawned in cut off shirts with neat designs on them (courtesy of their tour sponsor, clothing brand Glamour Kills), skinny jeans, and Vans shoes, the band’s image and fashion was just as comparable to the fans.

After playing several mosh-worthy songs, the band slowed it down by playing an acoustic version of their song “For The Win”, off their EP Guaranteed to Disagree. Jardine was accompanied by guitarist and back vocalist, Jordan Eckes as the two performed and the fans swayed back and forth to the music. Things got even more emotional when the band performed “Windows in Heaven” a song about the death of Jardine’s father. It was a very touching moment for the singer as she stayed fairly static during the performance, focusing on her singing, and the band backed her up with dramatic dynamics.

Overall, We Are The In Crowd provided an excellent set for their fans. The intimate venue gave room for an enjoyable experience for everyone who was in attendance. Although they didn’t talk to the fans as much as was expected in between songs, it was made up with the energy that the band put into each song. With the already immediate success that their new album, Weird Kids, is having, this is bound to be We Are The In Crowd’s year.

The set list was as followed:
The Best Thing (That Never Happened)
Manners
The Worst Thing About Me
Kiss Me Again
Never Be What You Want
Lights Out
For The Win (acoustic)
Windows in Heaven
Long Live the Kids
Exits and Entrances
