Young Rising Sons at The Palm Door for SXSW

Screenshot_2015-03-23-16-10-41The pop rock quartet Young Rising Sons pulled off an amazing SXSW showcase at The Palm Door at “dirty” Sixth street on March 20th, not disappointing the set expectation.The band, made up of lead singer Andy Tongren, guitarist Dylan Scott, bassist Julian Dimagiba, and drummer Steve Patrick started off the show by chanting their pre-show ritual taken from the band Stillwater from the movie Almost Famous. The energy was set from the start with the band’s infectious smiles and positive vibes.

They start of the set with King of the World, a song from their self entitled EP, along with Red and Gold, Turnin’ and their most played Spotify song, High. Adding to the mix, they played a cover of Melt With You and a sneak peak of a song from the new album called F**ked Up.Screenshot_2015-03-23-16-12-18

Young Rising Sons utterly enveloped the crowd with their upbeat instrumentals and pick me up lyrics. The band surrounded the entire venue with every beat bouncing off the walls. Old and new fans shared the audience, covering the floor with dancing bodies that sang along to every lyric.

Andy constantly addressed the audience saying how unreal it is to be playing SXSW since they’ve only signed to Interscope last year, with humble spirits and kick ass music, they won over the crowd.

They are currently on the American (You)th tour, co-headlining alongside Halsey with Olivver as their opener.
