The Band CAMINO are one of the hottest up and come bands in the indie rock music scene right now. The Memphis natives are bringing a new outlook on the popular genre, with a diverse range of beats and lyrical topics that cover love, romance and vulnerability in a way that we haven’t seen quite yet. While it can be hard to stand out in such an our populated genre, The Band CAMINO is not only standing out —they are soaring worlds above. Their largest headlining tour to date hit New York’s Webster Hall for a sold out show on Thursday night and we stuck around to take some photos and check out the show.
Opening band, Valley, hailing from Toronto, Canada kicked off the night. Their upbeat songs got everyone inside the venue loosened up and dancing around. Heads were bopping and people were definitely making note of Valley as a band to check out before they blow up. I had never heard of the band before Thursday nights show but I definitely left the photo pit with a smile on my face.
After a venue wide sing along to “Stacy’s Mom” as the sets were transitioned, it was finally time for the main event. A light layer of fog covered the stage as white lights illuminated a giant backdrop that read “The Band CAMINO”. The band took the stage and instantly dove into “Break Me” off their recent EP tryhard. Fans were screaming the lyrics along louder than the band and lead vocalist, Jefferey Jordan, couldn’t help but rip open the biggest jaw dropping smile as he looked out into the sold out crowd.
Watching The Band CAMINO perform, I could see the excitement on their faces and for a moment, I couldn’t tell if the band or the fans were happier to be there! The band played a lengthy hour and a half set that featured songs from way back when as well as their recent release, including “2/14”, “I Spend Too Much Time in My Room” and “Haunted.” After the latter song, the band went backstage and the lights went dim. A slight pause occurred before the band returned to the stage for an absolutely killer three song encore that was chock full of smiles, dancing and CO2 cannons shooting white fog into the air.
It was clear that absolutely nobody inside Webster Hall wanted the night to end and when the first notes of the band’s hit single “Daphne Blue” began, fans both young and old started screaming. The iconic breakup song became the song of the evening as every single person inside the venue was grooving and singing along with the band.
After a wildly fun and popular sold out performance on Thursday night, it will be truly exciting to see where The Band CAMINO is headed in the future. Their extreme talent and passion shines through on stage and they are, without a doubt, poised for a great future where they will surely see their name up in lights!
