Review: X Ambassadors at Bootleg Theatre *excellent
Last Thursday I saw an excellent performance from X Ambassadors, who debuted new tracks off their latest EP, The Reason as well as did a brief cover of "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys to lead into another one of their tracks. They even performed two songs in their encore, including "Brother" off their first EP and a song with Jamie N Commons, "Jungle", that makes me want to see the film the song was made for. Overall a very impressive performance from the rising Brooklyn band signed to Kid In A Korner's label (Imagine Dragons, Skylar Grey, Jamie N Commons), the subsidiary under Interscope led by producer Alex Da Kid. I highly recommend catching X Ambassadors live as they will not disappoint because of their high energy, catchy hooks and the drums and guitar are straight fire throughout the song. I loved all but 1 song, some acoustic slowed-down jam that I wasn't in the mood for. Other than that, nearly perfect set and this group is going to blow up once their debut album drops! Stream "Brother" and The Reason EP below, all the tracks on that are STRAIGHT FIRE!
