Half Moon Run surely had us “Turn our love way up inside”at the Independent (Jan 16, 2016)

The Independent, San Francisco
Written by Erica Andreozzi

It’s obvious from the previous review that I wrote back in 2014, Half Moon Run is one of my favorite indie rock bands and arguably my FAVORITE NEW BAND of 2013. After first being BLOW AWAY by their performance at The Village Underground in London (June 2013), I went on to see them 3 MORE TIMES in a span of a year. I even dedicated my birthday evening to rocking out to their November show that same year. That is why was MORE THEN READY (waaaaaay too long of a hiatus) to see them last Saturday at The Independent. What got me even MORE STOKED was that I’d get to see them in a ~350 capacity venue compared to a ~1,500 capacity back in London (yes, they SOLD OUT Shepherd’s Bush Empire two years ago). Just as I remember, their stage presence and energy were a force to be reckoned with, and everyone in the audience was howling for more. I enjoyed savoring a healthy sampling of new tracks (especially ‘Trust‘ and ‘Turn Your Lights Way up Inside‘) off their recently released album, Sun Leads Me On, as well as jumping up and down for their EPIC ENCORE (cover) of The Band‘s ‘I Shall Be Released‘ with their amazingly talented opener, Emilie & Ogden (see my recent review). I hope that they TOO leave their heart in SF and COME BACK SOON! ❤
