Langhorne Slim @ Brooklyn Bowl


It has been a joy following and writing about Langhorne Slim for the last four years. The band has always been able to stir a crowd with it’s infectious music and Slim’s charismatic showmanship. So what’s been changing? There is a different feeling in the air. People are finding out about the group from a variety of sources and coming out to see for themselves. The power of exposure. But music in general can’t be supported by a simple download. It is when a fan makes a commitment to see a band live.

One such patron was up front with her camera, ready to hear the song that brought her to the show. She was visibly overwhelmed with the power of the live show and although unfamiliar with most of the set chronicling their discography she will ultimately be a true supporter of the band and it’s output.

At the Brooklyn Bowl the popularity of the group was apparent. Slim did not have to win the crowd over they were already there hanging on every word, dancing and singing along. Even with an adoring crowd the band does not take anything for granted they bring it on more.

All the roadworthy experience has catapulted this group into another category. The momentum is building and for Langhorne Slim stardom is right around the corner and they are ready.

Langhorne Slim has one of the best live shows I've ever seen. It is obvious he cares about his fans and gives them 110% of himself.
