first_imgLoad remaining images Bloomington, Indiana’s own The Main Squeeze came to Boulder, Colorado to celebrate the release of their new album Without A Sound. The band came strapped with new tricks, ultimately throwing down one of the most energetically lifting shows of 2017 at the Fox Theatre to date.The Fox was packed shoulder-to-shoulder on this snowy Friday night to seek out the hype about what is undoubtedly one of the most talked-about, up-and-coming bands in the scene right now. Right out of the starting gates, the band played “One,” “Sweat,” and “405” off the just-released Without A Sound, and the one-two-punch got the nearly packed-to-capacity crowd attentively on their feet.Read More About Without A Sound In This Exclusive Interview With Guitarist Max NewmanAfter giving us a sweet taste of their newest material, the band hopped into Main Squeeze classics “Ebaneezer,” “I’ll Take Another,” “WWC,” and “Dr. Funk,” then brilliantly decided to close the set with two more new tunes, “Get At Me” and “Only Time.” Lead singer Corey Frye’s vocals and lyrics provided such a soulful and powerful structure to work with, while guitarist Max Newman took full advantage of this strength by absolutely annihilating his guitar solos.Along with keyboardist Ben “Smiley” Silverstein, bassist Rob Walker, and the man on the skins Reuben Gingrich, the Main Squeeze walked back out onto the stage for an unexpected and extended encore.Before returning to the music, the band made sure to thank all of their Madison House management (based in Boulder), old friends, new friends, family, recording extraordinaire, crew, and “every single person who has came out and shown this band from a small town in Indiana more love than we could ever imagine.” Corey Frye was speechless to the crowd’s overwhelming response, and took a minute to soak it in, with his jaw dropped to the mic-stand. The band’s heavy-hitters “Love Yourself Somebody” and “Return of the Mack” were executed perfectly to end a night that will go down in Main Squeeze history.Check out the full gallery below.Setlist: Main Squeeze | Fox Theatre Album Release Party | Boulder, CO | 4/28/2017Set: One>Sweat, 405>Spirits>Angelus> Ebaneezer, Miss That Feelin, In a Funk, Rule the World, I’ll Take Another, WWC, Dr. Funk>Get At Me, Only TimeE:: Love Yourself Somebody>Return of the Macklast_img read more
