On April 13, 2011, The Boxer Rebellion rocked the roof off New York’s Bowery Ballroom.  After great sets by Zach Williams and the Bellow and We Are Augustines (more on each band coming soon), TBR hit the stage at 10:30 and played for 2 hours!  Mixing old material with songs from their latest album “The Cold Still,” The Boxer Rebellion kept the audience mesmerized for their entire set.

The Boxer Rebellion’s music takes you on a journey and each of their 3 albums are meant to be enjoyed as a whole instead of the typical “hit and album filler” formula that so many bands adhere to.  I loved the whole show and highlights for me were “Spitting Fire,” “Semi-Automatic,” and “If You Run,” (which was featured on the “Going The Distance” soundtrack).  After the set, the band hung out at the merch table and greet fans.  Lead singer Nathan Nicholson was extremely cool.  See a photo of my encounter with him as well as the set list after the jump.
