LANY and Role Model had an enormous turnout for their show at The Coca Cola Roxy on Sunday night. Just past the halfway point of their one hundred city world tour, LANY immediately expressed how highly the band had anticipated playing Atlanta.

I shoot shows at this venue frequently, but this was the most amount of people I’ve seen fit into the space. Regardless of the stifling heat and shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, the show ran smoothly and both acts were wonderful.

Role Model, also known as Tucker Pillsbury, is a bedroom pop artist that wraps angst-driven, emotional lyrics with a comforting sound. His stage setup was minimal and without over the top lighting and flashy clothing. His sounds of heavy percussion, light guitar, and clean vocals reflects the simplicity of his

While I saw few people singing along, a lot of the audience members danced to his songs. He had a friendly reaction from the crowd, and got a particularly enthusiastic response for his cover of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”

Role Model did a fantastic job of hyping up the crowd for LANY.

The consideration for the attendees’ experience was impressive, and as a photographer I definitely appreciated the sentiment.

LANY performed all the songs from their new breakup album, Malibu Nights. The record is an eclectic mix of heartbreak ballads and comeback pop hits. If I’m not familiar with the band that I’m photographing, I don’t often listen to their music before the show. I enjoy experiencing new music in a live setting.

My first impression of LANY was a pleasant surprise. Paul Klein demonstrated powerful and controlled vocals, and the band played their parts in synchrony and interacted well with Klein despite being fifteen feet above him.

The crowd went absolutely nuts calling for the encore, so much so that Klein shed a few tears as the crowd chanted his name. LANY and Role Model were huge crowd favorites, making the concert an exciting place to be on a Sunday night in Atlanta.
