Live Review: The Wombats at Bristol’s Colston Hall

26th September 2011

The Wombats honoured Bristol’s Colston Hall with an amazing performance as part of their 2011 tour to promote their third studio album “This Modern Glitch” which was released back in April.

Support came in the form of Get People and The Good Natured. Get People played an impressive set of indie electro to warm up the crowd.

The Good Natured followed with an outstanding performance. We were blown away by lead vocalist Sarah McIntosh. Her stage presence and powerful vocals warmed up the crowd nicely. This band is set for big things. Their recently released EP ‘Skeleton’ is well worth a listen and they will be playing the good ship Thekla on the 3rd of December. We will be bringing you more details on this shortly.

The Wombats bounded onto the stage to open with “Our Perfect Disease” with an energetic performance. This enthusiasm and adrenaline continued right through to the 2007 hit “Let’s Dance to Joy Division”. This energy was infectious, and as the band worked their way through their set everybody was dancing and singing along to every song.

Judging by the diversity of the crowd, The Wombats have amassed a loyal fan base, from young girls screaming for bass player and vocalist Tord Øverland-Knudsen, to couples in their forties.

The Wombats have a long and successful career ahead of them and we look forward to them returning to Bristol in the hopefully not too distant future.
