Their sold out show at the small venue included supporting band Mini Mansions and was a show many won’t forget. The night brought intense strobe lights, multiple acts of crowd surfing and all around good old debauchery from band members Mike Kerr (vocals, bass guitar) and Ben Thatcher (drums).
All the above is not meant to be taken in a bad way. Royal Blood was gracious to their fans and commanded the Glass House with ease – their opening act Mini Mansions was just as entertaining.
Royal Blood opened up with “Come on Over,” a fast paces and seedy tune that set the tempo for the night.
Before them, Mini Mansions came out strutting to Taco’s infamous “Putting on the Ritz” before going straight into “Monk” off their new album. The band’s eight song set list included a creepy (yet beautiful) cover of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and new songs from their album The Great Pretenders such as “Vertigo.”
While Royal Blood only played 10 songs that night (the Glass House has another sold out show at midnight which left no room for a Royal Blood encore), Thatcher and Kerr got the crowd moving in the short amount of time they had.
