The folk-indie-rock-fusion band Lord Huron headlined at the Riverside Theater on April 23, offering a distinct mashup of memorable harmonies, thought- provoking lyrics and jamming acoustics.

The opening act, In Tall Buildings, a familiar face in the Milwaukee area that last played at the Backroom @ Collectivo, was even better the second time. Their heavy bass and creative beats kept the audience wanting more. Once they ended their set, the audience definitely wanted an encore.

Once Lord Huron took the stage, frontman Ben Schneider and the rest of the band took us on a journey through the unknown. Their new album, “Vide Noir,” psychedelic and a little edgier than their last album, was definitely prominent at their show. The audience was very happy to hear songs like, “Frozen Pines,” “La Belle Fleur Sauvage,” and “Time to Run” from their old albums.

From the crowd’s response, I would describe the performance as electrifying. You could feel it in the air how passionate Lord Huron was about making sure the audience was having a good time.

Their music, upbeat and foot-stomping entertainment definitely made the night.

“Vide Noir” is available now on iTunes, Spotify and other music streaming services. Visit lordhuron.com to purchase CDs, vinyls and other merchandise.
