Traipsed down to Dalston on Tuesday evening to see The Neighbourhood play a free gig at Birthdays. It was much too short a set (they didn't play 'Leaving Tonight') but amazing nonetheless. I can't remember ever seeing such an enthusiastic and infectious performance. Cannot wait to see them again in November.
They are such an unassuming band. Half the audience didn't realise who they were when they took to the stage. After the gig Jesse Rutherford was happily handing out hugs like a toddler that was never warned of stranger danger and Jeremy Freedman walked straight over to the bar without being approached or ambushed once.
Such cool and talented kids.
They closed the show with Sweater Weather:
