Quirky pop rockers The Front Bottoms never fail to get audiences singing along to each upbeat melody and heartfelt sentiment in concert. With lyrics that alternate between sincere poetry and tongue-in-cheek humor, frontman Brian Sella always invokes serious feels among ticket buyers. As he strums away at his acoustic guitar, booming drums and melodic basslines add a muscular punch to fan favorites like “Twin Size Mattress”, “Laugh Till I Cry”, and “The Plan”. The group's kaleidoscopic approach also incorporates French horn, accordion, and synthesizers to make sure each song brings a unique sound to the stage. The resulting live experience is an endearing combination of geeky charm, sophisticated arrangements, and first-rate hooks, helping The Front Bottoms win over new fans any time they play on tour.
