Live Music: The Drums at Sonic Boom

On our usual Saturday stroll to Sonic Boom we headed down a bit later to peruse some records and catch one of our favourite bands du jour The Drums playing live in store before their set at Mod Club later on.

They were pretty gracious, expressing they hadn’t played at something like this in a while, and vocalist Jonathan Pierce even asked the crowd to “say nice things”, but neither us nor the crowd which flooded the rows of records seemed to notice anything but great sound. They played a handful of songs off their new album Portamento and stuck around after their performance to sign posters and albums for die hard fans.
