Pendulum attacks NYC with support from Innerpartysystem
At the start of this month, UK rock sensation Pendulum played a sold out show at "The Fillmore at Irvine Plaza" in NYC. Matched with a rhythmic trio known as Innerpartysystem for an opening act, the 6 piece powerhouse that is one of the most explosive acts to come out of Europe since the late 90s took a crowd filled with people of all ages, race and affiliation on a whirlwind journey of sonic possibilities that truly deserves the "You had to be there" cliche.
Opening the night up with Salt in The Wounds from their newly released album Immersion, Pendulum started things off with a bang and got the crowd jumping and the floor booming. By the time they reached "Witchcraft" the latest single the Plaza's floor took on a life of it's self. With all the movement in the crowd and the bass lines pumping, Pendulum actually managed to topple over a wall of crates and coolers that was stupidly stacked along the side of the concert hall.
You might remember hearing Pendulum's name from any number of music journalists after they exploded onto the scene at the sight of the 2008 Coachella festival, or you might have seen them while they were opening for Linkin Park during the "A Thousand Suns" tour, either way, If you consider yourself a real music aficionado chances are pretty good that you've heard of this group.
Having just released "Immersion" in the US, Pendulum has set out on a headlining tour alongside their duties as Linkin Park support, they will also be cruising to Miami for the Ultra Music Festival and over to CA in time for Coachella. If you haven't seen this band live and in concert, I strongly encourage you to take the time and make it out to one of their shows.
