AJR Celebrate “Living Room” Release at Webster Hall

Indie pop band AJR released their debut album, Living Room, earlier this week, and celebrated with a concert at NYC’s Webster Hall last night.  The album has been a long time coming for brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan, who got their start by busking around New York.  Those experiences certainly influence their performing style – they’ve mastered the ability to win over a crowd with their energetic playing style.

AJR promised this wouldn’t be a typical show, and they had quite a few surprises in store last night.  Using a GoPro camera and a selfie stick, they filmed a music video for the fan favorite, “Woody Allen” during their set.  We can’t wait to see how it turned out!   They also took crowd interaction to a whole new level when they played their new single “Infinity.”  Drums were placed just in front of the stage, and Jack passed out drum sticks to the lucky fans in the front row so they could drum along with him.  He later jumped into the crowd after a serious drum-off between the three brothers during “Pitchfork Kids.”  They also invited surprise guest  Alex Wolff on stage to play guitar for “Big White Bed.”

They played every track off of “Living Room,” and the packed crowd was singing along to every word, even the Overture.  It was fun to see the album come to life on stage, and celebrate how far AJR has come.  “Living Room” showcases AJR’s wide range and unique sound – from the mellow “Growing Old On Bleecker Street” to “Big Idea,” with it’s layered loops and lightening fast verses.  We’re glad that “The Green And The Town” made the album, thanks to the support of their fans, as it’s one of our favorite tracks!
