Venue: The Fillmore
Opening Act(s): Electric Citizen
I saw Wolfmother for the first time at Lollapalooza in 2006. I hadn’t heard of them prior to that, but I loved their modern day Led Zeppelin sound. Even though they were amazing at a large outdoor event, it was good to see them in a smaller venue because it allows you to actually see the artists.
Keyboardist/bass player Ian Peres had the most amazing 70s rocker look with his long wavy hair being held down by a headband. Lead singer Andrew Stockdale didn’t do much talking during the show, but did comment about wanting to take one of The Fillmore chandeliers with them to make it a part of their show. During a couple of the songs the chandeliers were turned off and on to coincide with the music.
Wolfmother released a new album earlier this year titled “New Crown”. They played several songs from this new album as well as their bigger hits including “Woman”, “Mind’s Eye”, “Vagabond” and “Joker & the Thief”. They sounded just as good as I remembered they did in 2006.
Electric Citizen is a heavy rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio. This quartet consists of Laura Dolan (vocals), Ross Dolan (guitar), Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums). Laura’s voice was powerful and her performance was fun to watch. She jumped around the stage banging her head causing her hair to fly all over the place. They were a great choice to open up the show.
