Live Review: The Thrills @ Scala

The Thrills live @ ScalaSo, last night I was lucky enough to catch The Thrills and Palladium at Scala in London. I’ve already written a quick bit on Palladium for Londonist (who gave me the free tickets), but now for The Thrills, a highlight of the month for me.

I caught The Thrills for the first time last month at the Millennium Dome, and loved their short set, and now I’ve finally got to see a full set I must say they’re a brilliant live band… full of energy, pizzaz and Conor sure knows how to work a crowd.

Working their way through all of the favourites and a lot of their new album, the guys from Ireland via America bought a tiny bit of summer to a rain swept London. Introducing new song “Restaurant” Connor jokes “This is the bit the whole band hates – I’m on rhythm guitar, holding it all together, and, well, my rhythm is non-existant”. Still, the track passes without a hitch. Undoubtedly the highlights of the evening are the ol’ classics “Big Sur”, “Santa Cruz”, “One Horse” and “Corey Haim”, however “Long Forgotten Song” definitely has the chance to join the favourites, sounding brilliant both on record and live.

After the jump find some pictures and the setlist. If anyone wants any of the pictures bigger just shout or leave a comment.
