Klaxons – Venue – October 4, 2010
Three years in the making, Klaxons finally return to Vancouver in support of their long awaited second album, Surfing The Void
With huge buzz out of the gate, taking their time to follow up their debut seemed like a risk especially for a British band facing the fickle British music press.
On this side of the pond, if the crowd at Venue was anything to go by, the enthusiasm hasn’t diminished. Although not completely sold out there was a good turn out to catch their bouncy new-rave songs.

Even though I don’t know their new material well yet, their enthusiastic performance kept me bounc?ing? and engaged throughout the night…a tough task late on a Monday night. ? ??? ??? ?
