Finally I get to see my first live concert since last February when I saw Metro Station and Cobra Starship with my sister. I was going to see Peter Bjorn and John, but they canceled when they realized that Depeche Mode wanted them to open for them.
Since the concert was canceled, I looked at the schedule of shows at the Glass House and found a worthy show to go see. Monday the 20th provides me with a concert at least.
The Presets are an electronic music duo from Australia with two albums to their credit. They may not fill up arenas as in their home country, but in America we are fortunate to experience them in small theaters right now.
Their recent album is Apocalypto and it has some very good singles that have been released. “My People”, “A New Sky”, “Talk Like That” and “This Boy is in Love”. However it was Beams that helped bring forth awareness of their music to the world. The song “Are You The One” helped to lead me to obtaining all of their music. Their elements of punk and electronica help lead with a fresh sound.
Since many people are not able to afford tickets to Coachella, this seems to be the best alternative right after the festival.
The Presets at the Glass House, Pomona California $18 / $20 Day of Show.
