Live Show Review: Night Train’s Last Show

There was a different feeling for this show. Knowing that this would be the last show of a band that had been around for several years and who had really been able to make their mark in the Seattle music scene, really made you realize before even stepping foot into The Lofi, that this was going to be a great show!

Brandon Daniels and the chic came on stage and just tore through their set with reckless abandonment. I loved the attitude that they played with through every song. They have a very old school punk rock sound in their play. Best song ,”All Things Chic”, great mix of old school rock and punk. There new album is, “In Light”, which I highly recommend.

The night really belonged to Night Train. The Lofi was as full as I have ever seen it for any band. You would stare to the side watching Night Train do their on stage ritual one last time before they went on stage. They performed with that fierce attitude that all have come to expect from this band. They went through the songs that we have come to know them for such as ,”Huntress”, and ,”Mister.” With the guitar player, Nicole People, who opened their songs with catchy guitar melodies, then the bass player, Selena Whitaker-Paquiet, comes in with the punchy bass lines combined with the thunderous drums of Taryn Dorsey seemed to always be the strong foundation of all their songs. I have always enjoyed how the vocalists, lead by Rachel Ferguson, would blend their voices perfectly on songs such as,”Mating Call”, weather it was animal growls or eerie soulful vocals.

I would recommend getting there music while you still can. They represented the Seattle music scene with a rolling punk enthusiasm in there shows yet with a soulful sound that made you never leave there shows disappointed. The saying that they always pushed one last time, Choo Choo MotherXxxX!!!!!(the rated version)
