Wallows released their debut album, Nothing Happens, nearly a year ago. Since then, plenty has happened: they've opened for Vampire Weekend, appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and are currently in the midst of a sold-out tour which brought them to the Carolinas for three shows this past weekend. We caught their Friday night show at Charlotte's Underground.

Wallows is a three-piece band consisting of Braeden Lemasters on guitar and vocals, Cole Preston on drums and vocals, and Dylan Minnette on guitar, keyboard, and vocals. The trio have been friends since childhood and you can see that friendship onstage. They had two other musicians rounding out the band on Friday, including one that played trumpet.

Wallows is a great live band. They're energetic, fun, and feed off the crowd's enthusiasm and there was plenty coming from this particular crowd. To say the crowd was stoked was an understatement. They knew every line of every song and screamed them to the band, sometimes overpowering the singer. And the band gave them everything they wanted. They played crowd favorites like current single "Are You Bored Yet?," "Scrawny, "Pictures Of Girls," "These Days," "Pleaser," and even manged to sneak in a bit of an old Drake Bell song.

Amidst a summer of music festivals that will see them hit Bonaroo, Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, and Lollapalooza Germay, Wallows will return to the Carolinas on July 13th for a show at The Orange Peel in Asheville. We strongly suggest you check them out!
