PHOTOS: Maudlin Strangers / Coasts / Bad Suns @ El Rey 1/24/15

words and photos by Shabnam Ferdowsi

I've never seen the El Rey more packed than it was on Saturday night. The crowd was filled with, from what my ears could tell, 16 year old girls, understandably so since the stage was about to get filled with quite the attractive line-up. I spoke to a few of the audience members in the front row how long they were in line: 4 am! That's a real fanbase right there. 

It was overall a real fun show. I've been wanting to see Coasts for a year, and they didn't let me down. From their own grooves on stage, to their poprock hits that made us move on the floor, no to mention their heart-melting British accents,  it was exciting seeing them infuse their crowd with that energy.

This will be Bad Suns first headlining tour, and from their own hot performance I've no doubt they're going to make waves during the rest of the ride. They ended with their crowd favorite "Cardiac Arrest", naturally getting an encore applause.  

Check out the photos we took and catch them on the rest of their tour if you can!
