Brand New close the second night of Give It A Name

Glowsticks are also out in force for Enter Shikari

Brand New closed the second night of Give It A Name 07 with a stunning show in Earls Court tonight (April 28).

The New Yorkers performed a 50 minute set which borrowed heavily from their recent album ‘The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me’.

Alongside the likes of ‘Sowing Season’, ‘Deagausser’, the tragic ballad ‘Limousine’, which singer Jesse Lacey revealed was about a “six year old girl who died in his home in New York”, the band also performed recent hit single ‘Jesus Christ’.


Brand New played:

‘Sowing Season’






‘Jesus Christ’


‘You Won’t Know’

‘Welcome To Bangkok’

Earlier, The All American Rejects played a short set which saw singer Tyson Ritter attempt to kick a football through a human goal before he launched into ‘I’m Waiting’.

New Found Glory paid tribute to Hemel Hempstead punk five-piece Gallows during their hardcore performance as guitarist Steve Klein declared: “Gallows are the radist band I’ve ever met.”

Kicking off proceedings, electro-hardcore NME Award winners Enter Shikari played a memorable set in front of their glowstick waving armada.

Lead singer Rou Reynolds pleaded for help from the crowd before the start of recent single ‘Anything Can Happen In The Next Half Hour’ after he declared his voice to be “fucked”.

Towards the end of the show, Batten also encouraged the crowd to form as many human pyramids as they could as the band closed with ‘OK Time For Plan B’.

Give It A Name 07 continues tomorrow (April 29) with performances from The Automatic, AFI and Jimmy Eat World.
