    Young the Giant The Rave Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Young the Giant is riding high on a huge success of their second single “Cough Syrup” off their 2010 self-titled release. Another high note for the band was Fox’s hit show Glee covering  “Cough Syrup” in their latest episode.  The band is also set to play on one of the hottest music festivals this summer, Bonnaroo, as well as the Hangout Music Festival in Alabama. Their latest headlining tour is sold-out with the support of Walk the Moon. Thus, 2012 is looking good for this alternative rock band from Irvine, California.

    Young the Giant The Rave Milwaukee WisconsinLast night at the Rave was very interesting. This was the first time I’ve seen Young the Giant live after hearing the chatter about “Cough Syrup.”  It’s pretty bad of me because these guys have been around since 2004 and were formerly known as The Jakes. They sure know how to make an incredible first impression and one of the things I noticed was the amazing lighted backdrop on stage; it illuminated the stage setting the tone for the show.  There were hanging lanterns along with stands of exposed light bulbs that dominated the back of the stage.  The real surprising thing I noticed was how many fans, young ones, in attendance smoked pot.  That’s all I smelled as soon as the first song was over.  It was unexpected and slightly funny because just a couple weeks before Megadeth and Motorhead were at the Rave and that very familiar scent was not present.  For Young the Giant to be playing Bonnaroo just seems more appropriate than ever.

    I can dig Young the Giant because they are a cross between Coldplay and Kings of Leon. At times  Sameer’s vocals even reminded me of Jim Morrison from the Doors.  He has such a strong vocal presence that trumps many of the other bands in the alternative rock genre.  As mentioned above the hanging lights from the back of the stage lit up the band and created a surreal vibe for their alternative rock sound.

    This is the time to catch them before they hit it really big. Tour dates and photos from their set below.
