A story through American Bollywood with Young the Giant

Great evening, great bands, and a great story to be told.

What an incredible night we had yesterday with Young the Giant, Milky Chance and Rosa Linn at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater in Austin, TX.

We were part of the crowd for a few minutes and the energy was really contagious.


First opening act was the Armenian singer-songwriter Rosa Linn, who even without her usual band was able to put on a great show for a crowd that was excited to be there. She played a few songs such as “Hallelujah”, “If I were you”, and “SNAP”.

After such a good experience that last a little bit over half an hour with only her and her loop pedal, we are excited to also see her set with a full band.

The second act of the night was German alt-rock band, Milky Chance. They shared with us songs from their discography, from their earliest albums Sadnecessary and Blossom  with songs such as “Synchronize”, “Flashed Junk Mind” and “Cocoon” and from their latest album Living In A Haze, “Living In A Haze”, “Feeling For You”, and “Better Off”

The crowd was singing along with the band throughout the show, but definitely the classic songs such as “Stolen Dance” and “Sweet Sun” turned the crowd on with their playful beat and surprising harmonica sound. 

It was a total of 13 songs the band played leaving the crowd ready for the big act of the night.

A little after 9 pm, the story surrounding Young the Giant’s latest album begins.

Their set was a story told in four acts (Origins, Exile, Battle, and Denouement), which mirrors a story from Indian mythology called Mahabharata but is translated into a story told in our times.

An interesting concept and an amazing way to portray that in a show. While the tour was for their latest album, their set included quite a few other songs from their catalog.

The band gave it all on stage, their performance was fantastic, and their energy was something that the crowd could feel and enjoy.

After the four acts were over, the band left the stage to freshen up a little bit, just to come back with its most powerful bit of the night.

The encore started with “Firelight”, a slow ballad that was dedicated to our loved ones and the ones that already left. Which gave us a time to rest for the next couple of songs.

For the last three songs, the audience (us included) had a blast with their most energetic songs. They closed their set with “Superstition”, “Silvertongue”, and “My Body” to which we danced, jumped, and screamed!

Overall it was an amazing night that we won’t forget anytime soon. This is one of the couple of bands that started the alternative rock movement back in the 2010s and their experience is clearly visible on-stage.

We’re thankful that we got to be there for this unbelievable evening. Young the Giant will continue touring with Milky Chance for a few more dates so be sure to check them out if they are in a city nearby.
