Life Size (Acoustic) Action
November 30, 2013
Friday, November 22nd, was a night for people who wanted to jam out to some live, good, and raw tunes. Even though Life Size was without two of the band’s five members, they still put on a terrific opening show at the new Lee St. Theatre in downtown Salisbury for the headliner that night, Bombadil.
The band is usually comprised of four Catawba College Seniors and one Junior, but as Tevin Carr, the drummer, explained, “Greg and me play too loud for tonight, but we’re still here to support.” Thus it was a quieter but still enjoyable set lacking the bass master Greg Moore and intense drumming, as well as backup vocals, by these two talented gentlemen. Those who performed on Friday were Allijah Motika, Silas Boyle and Jake Martin who played acoustic guitars, keys, and even a box drum for different songs.
The songs chosen for the setlist were a great way to start the night off, and the funny comments and shout-outs from the stage kept the mood light and successfully got smiles to tug at pretty much all the faces in the audience. On sharing the stage with Bombadil, Allijah said, “It’s such a cool experience getting to blend our take on pop music with their quirky, fun ‘pop without boundaries.’ It made for a great night of music.”
Below are several of the Life Size songs of that night if you missed it, so click ‘play’ and enjoy!
