Hey everyone! If you follow my Twitter @ovictoriamedia you know that many voted for an ICYMI blog post. I figured I’d make a bonus blog for you all. Hope you all enjoy!
Irving Plaza in New York City holds over 1,000 people. COIN visited Irving Plaza on the “North American Tour 2018” on Friday February 9, 2018. Accompanying COIN on tour is The Aces. The NYC date was sold out.
I purchased a VIP ticket to the show which allowed me to watch the show from the back of the sound board on the second floor. On the second floor is a bar and an open area where you can see the show.
The bar on the second floor had specialty drinks made for the group. Here is a picture of the drink menu.
The opening act was The Aces. The girl group put on a 30-40 minute set. The crowd was loud with the opening act singing back lyrics and dancing. After waiting 20 minutes, COIN took the stage. Here is the setlist:
- Growing Pains
- I Don’t Wanna Dance
- Time Machine
- Are We Alone?
- Don’t Cry, 2020
- I Would
- Heart Eyes
- Miranda Beach
- Malibu 1992
- Talk Too Much
- Fingers Crossed
- Feeling *ENCORE*
The show was awesome. I’ve never seen COIN perform live before, and the group performed as great as I thought they would. The group sounds as great live ans they do on an album. The audience were engaged in the music and vivacious with the group. I feel that COIN is an up and coming band and is gaining more traction with their latest album How Will You Know If You Never Try? COIN’s music has been playing on a variety of alternative music stations including Sirius XM’s Alt Nation.
After COIN’s set, I got the chance to meet Regan, a disc jockey on AltNation. After socializing with him, I went down the stairs and met with an employee of Irving Plaza. Since I purchased a VIP ticket, I received a poster courtesy of Irving Plaza. The poster is with COIN’s tour artwork giving information that the show is sold out.
Thanks for reading the bonus blog!
Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
