Concert Review: Disclosure!!

By Jordan Weil posted Jan 27, 2014 at 05:15 PM

See what Jordan Weil thought about the Disclosure concert on Saturday night! You know you want to...

            Call me superstitious, but I take it as a sign of good luck when the first song in a show is my favorite song off the new album. If I were more of a scientist, I might hypothesize that this produces a calming effect on the brain that soothingly assures the concertgoer that this is going to be a great show. Usually, one expects an artist to scatter those more popular songs throughout the set, in order to keep the audience engaged. So it follows that, if the artist is playing not just one, but two of their best new songs first, they must truly have a handle on the crowd and their show.

            This was certainly the case for Disclosure on Saturday night at the Fillmore. They played the crowd in with my personal favorite off the GRAMMY-nominated album Settle, “F For You” and kept energy high with the ever-popular “When a Fire Starts to Burn”. If it felt like the Lawrence brothers were playing single after single, it might have to do with all the material they had to work with. The consensus around the crowd was overwhelmingly positive, from the young-wild-and-free types of front to the mellow groovers in the back. As fans were played out to ‘Latch’ there arose, for some, a general aura of nostalgia for a time when Miami Beach offered more of the funky, nu-disco vibes like Disclosure’s. For the rest, however, there was an after-party to get to.
