Sound: The singing is great, with both male and female singer, as well as a rapper/singer as well. Generally, LZ7 use computer created tracks, but on stage they always seem to have drums - these are good to have live as it helps keep the rhythm going whilst still keeping something real for the songs instead of it all being made on a computer. The quality of the sound was good, as the crowd was close to the stage and so they could all hear the music as it happened rather than hearing it after a small delay. This made the general effect of the music much better. // 7
Perfomance: The audience fully enjoyed the performance, with many people dancing and singing along with the lyrics to the songs, some of which included:
"This Little Light" - the main song of the evening, as the show was to help make the release of the song bigger - the remix/newer version of the song was being released for download that night at midnight, and so everyone fully enjoyed it. It went to reach No.26 in the Official UK Top 40, and No.4 in the UK Indie Charts.
"Sold Out" - a great song which was used during the performance with a catchy tune and chorus, and also a little part in the bridge which is easy for the audience to join in with, as it is made up of Oh's and Ay's.
"Amazing" - this is another great song with a good meaning behind it as well as bearing some sort of similarity to the song "Trouble" by Shampoo.
"Dance The Night Away" - generally a very good tune with a catchy chorus to get the audience involved as most songs aim to.
(other songs as well) - LZ7 put on a good show, no matter what songs they play, and it is quite hard to remember exactly what they played (as it was over a year ago that they had this concert/performance). // 8
Overall Impression: 25th September 2011, Manchester O2 Apollo, Manchester, England, UK. The opener for the gig was The Band With No Name - a group whose frontman used to be in a different group with LZ7 frontman Lindz West (that group was called The Tribe). They performed a song along with Lindz which they had originally made together, called The 4Points (or simply 4POINTS). I loved the show in general, with many light effects and so on. There was nothing really to hate about the show, apart from the fact that the room was a bit stuffy - probably due to the crowd, lack of ventilation and smoke machines which were used. The tickets were 5 each and were definitely worth the money, especially to say it was at such a great venue.
Probably the most unforgettable moment of the show was when the drummer was lifted high into the air along with his kit to do a solo while the rest of the band went backstage. At one point in his solo, he threw one of his drumsticks out into the crowd! I will go to their next gig if I can, it just depends on when and where it is, and if I can get to it. // 9
