A great set list is key to any performance and opening with a rocking intro, straight into a fast paced rocker was a perfect start to their show! My only concern was "Tallahassee Woman" which just didn't seem up to par with the rest of tunes, It's busy guitar work just was a bit too much for what this tune called for and was a slight dip in the energy but they brought it back up right after so all was good!
At the end of their set rocked "The Boys Are Back In Town" and what a wonderful job they did. Embodying Thin Lizzy's soul they rocked that song so hard I swear they had wrote it! Truly a great end to a great set!
Columbia took the stage and had a more refined sound right off the bat. A touch of U2, The Beatles, Oasis and a clear 90's rock influence crafted their sound. To be completely honest the first song did not blow me away and it took until the 3rd song to really immerse myself in the art that is Columbia. Their set ramped up as they got crunchier and crunchier.
Their new single is what solid me and made me a true Columbia fan. "Money" just took my breath away as I watched a fantastic blend of rock emerge. The rest of the set proceeded to rock my socks. Ending it with a fantastic heavy rendition of "Helter Skelter" they have truly made an impression on Roxy and I that we soon won't forget.
