The Mindsweep Tour // Vinyl at Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas

The Mindsweep Tour

Enter Shikari, Hands Like Houses, and The White Noise

 

The Mindsweep Tour made its Las Vegas stop on Wednesday night. Though the small club was slow to fill, by the time Enter Shikari the place filled out and the crowd was primed for what was to come. With a great lengthy set, Enter Shikari played a mixed set of material spanning their entire catalogue that kept the fans singling along all night. The high energy kicked off with “Solidarity”, and old fan favorite “Sorry Youre Not A Winner” until slowing down a tad into “The One True Colour”. At different points in the set, Rou made his way into the crowd, at one point taking his synth and mic stand with him into the crowd. The crowd got to show off their best Shikari Shuffle during “Destabilize” mid set. By the end of the main set, both band and fans were still feeling good and going strong. The band ended with “Mothership” and immediately as the band walked off, the “And still we will be here, standing like statues” chant began referring to the band’s song “Reprise”. The place erupted with cheers as the band one by one took the stage for the encore. Pandemonium broke out as the guys started “Anaesthetist” and then finishing on “The Appeal & The Mindsweep II”.

When the tour was first announced, I was very excited to see Hands Like Houses would be on as support. Hands Like Houses never fails to impress when it comes to how well they sound live and this show was no exception. The guys came out with a 7 song set that was made up of almost completely all new songs from their 2016 release Dissonants. Luckily for the fans, to cap off the set, the band busted out “Introduced Species” from the last record “Unimagine”.

Unfamiliar faces to the line up was Los Angeles’ The White Noise. With raw and aggressive vocals provided by Shawn Walker and David Southern, The White Noise tore up the stage at Vinyl. Playing material from their debut EP “Arent You Glad?”, the guys brought a high energy set and got the early crowd primed for the rest of the night. By the end of the set, there was sweat, some blood, and a guitar smashed through a bass drum head. These dudes are on to something and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them.
