Concert: Wolf Parade x Vogue Theatre

Wolf Parade with the Moools live in concert at the Vogue Theatre on July 25, 2010.

Wow. Just wow. That concert was so beyond epic. Last night's incredible show at the Vogue was astonishingly energetic and vibrant.

Wolf Parade played a straightforward, very intensely energetic set. There was not much banter, apart from their words about being close to him.

The night started off with a mysterious buzz at who the opening act was. No one seemed to really know. There was an unusual hush as three strange looking Japanese men of varying ages quietly and indiscriminately took the stage. I do not think anyone expected the surprisingly robust performance by Tokyo band, the Moools. Suddenly, the trio of Japanese rockers were delightfully engrossing with their very loud, in your face brand of Asian garage rock.

Their songs really hit the spot, despite their foreignness. The Moools' hard rock infused style with Japanese pop lyrics and a heavy metal sound was a monster hit with the stunned crowd, not knowing what to expect. It was a interesting mixture of noise rock and hardcore beats as the lead singer yelled out an assortment of phrases and lyrics. Their presence was aloof with only a handful of English words at their disposal. Nonetheless, the Moools rocked the house and were a great compliment to Wolf Parade.

The audience was entranced and stood on their feet for well over two hours as Wolf Parade killed every single song they played with a kind of ferocious spirit and energy I have not seen in a long time. I have been to many concerts and have not seen the kind of breakneck enthusiasm and high intensity in a long time.

Wolf Parade performed not solidly, but incredibly as they jolted out their new and old hits. The fiery passion they embodied was infectious as the crowd ate it all up. Hits like "I'll Believe in Anything" and "Ghost Pressure" rocked the packed theatre.

I absolutely adore these Victoria rockers and their passionate live performance was something to behold as the energy with which they played encased the walls of the building and the loudness and sheer intensity was rather impressive. Wolf Parade's latest effort, Expo 86, is chock full of rock and roll hits and their concert last night in support of that album was stellar to say the least.

The feeling in the Vogue from the first song to the last encore was electric. Wolf Parade kept the rock and roll hungry audience standing in a trance for two and a half solid hours with their upbeat brand of independent rock. It was a thrilling performance and a jaw-droopingly good night of music.

Expo '86 is their third record, not 'sophomore' - which implies second.
