Blair bands hold concert at the Veterans of Foreign Wars building
Local Blair bands Swan Song and Frailboys headlined a concert at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) building in Takoma Park on Saturday night. The two headliners performed original, creative songs that had the jam-packed crowd reeling late into the night.
Swan Song gained popularity through word of mouth and a string of performances at Blair's open-mics, although the band has yet to officially release a song. They've been able to draw sizeable crowds to both of the shows they've done so far through their professional sound and the fusion of a variety of genres (rock, jazz and funk) into their songs. A five-person group, Swan Song seems like an average high school band, but they have a unique sound and vibe anyone can dance to.
Students were packed shoulder to shoulder, dancing and singing along throughout each band's set. By the end of FrailBoys set, the entire crowd was just as hyped as when the night began, and everyone yelled along with the rappers as they ended with their signature song, 2 AM. Blair's bands put on an impressive show, and everyone in the audience can't wait to hear more.
