The NBHD (The Neighbourhood)

The NBHD (The Neighbourhood)

Formed in 2011, The Neighbourhood are captivating concertgoers with a fusion of evocative, moody indie rock melodies and hip-hop inspired beats. The band burst onto the scene in early 2012 with the track “Female Robbery.” With little to no information available about the band, fans clamored for more, until finally the Neighbourhood’s identity was revealed as a young quintet from Newbury Park, Calif. consisting of lead singer Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott, and drummer Bryan Sammis.

I expected the concert to be a little more chill but some fans were animals. Not sure how many people I nearly elbowed in the face. But totally worth seeing them.

It took a long time for the band to come on stage and there was about a 30 min wait between acts. I wish they had played more from I Love You but it's understandable as to why they didn't. I showed up 3 hours before the show started and ended up with a front row spot. The first opener was really weird but JAKOY was great and I'll be following him now as well. Overall fun Tuesday night.

I had such an unbelievable time listening to a band I've loved for a while... All of my expectations were met or exceeded!! The crowd was pushy and loved to be in my personal space but it was worth it for The Neighbourhood...

Both The 1975 and The Neighborhood were an amazing performances. Venue was perfect for their shows and if you didn't have a chance to see them, you truly missed out. Make sure you catch their shows!!!

Let me start off by saying The Neighbourhood are phenomenal and one of my favorite bands ever. The 1975 are also fantastic and I was quite pleased with their performance. The crowd went nuts when Jesse came out and you could really feel the energy throughout the night. I will definitely go to another one of their concerts for sure! I was in front of where Zach Abels (guitar) was and I was not disappointed at all considering Zach is fine fellow. Waiting in line in the rain was worth it and I totally would get poured on again to see these boys! Now concerning the venue: Usually after the concert is over both bands head out to the back of the venue to meet the fans. Security was a pain the butt because they would not let anyone through after a group of girls got in. I was really disappointed I was unable to get a picture with anyone from The Neighbourhood. Matt (lead singer of The 1975) was nice enough to come around to the front and meet everyone there for pictures. He is super sweet and I am glad I got to meet him.

The 1975 was a very pleasant surprise; good catchy riffs, danceable, good energy, and cute accents. The Neighbourhood was a bit of a dissapointmen; the sound was poor, the vocals weren't clear, and their was too much base. The energy was good and the crows was receptive, but their live show didn't match their recordings.

This was the second time seeing them live and have to say I was a bit disappointed in the sound! I was incredibly muffled and did not seem like a professional was behind the sound board at all! Was very disappointed in that!

The concert was one of the most looked forward to things ive had, however as an avid concert attendee, i normally keep my tickets; BUT the security as opposed to scanning the tickets just took them and let us in. I was quite upset about it because now i have no ticket to add to my collection. Not even just that but the ticket i would've preferred to have had to have signed as well. HOWEVER this is just one little thing that i can go on without because i happened to be the first person in line and i got front row! It was great both bands sounded amazing! A tad loud from the opening act that caused me to plug my ears momentarily, but it was still wonderful. Also after the concert had ended both bands were in the back of the venue in the alleyway to be met and taken pictures with which was absolutely wonderful! All in all it was a wonderful concert that i HIGHLY recommend!

They were excellent in STL. The crowd wasn't the best and feedback was awkwardly lacking, but they made it work. There was a slight synthetic quality to the lead singer's microphone so the music sounded very similar to the cd. I would definitely see them again. The sound tech had some issues and the microphone fed back a few times which wasn't pleasant. The vibe was was very "underground" and they all seemed/looked like 90's cool kids. They are also insanely attractive, which is just a plus when staring at five people for an hour.

First the good news, and there is plenty. California indie rockers The Neighbourhood have released a rather solid debut record (released 4.23), I Love You. From it, we have been fortunate enough to learn/devour/enjoy some exciting new songs; namely the comely and sedutive "Sweater Weather" and pulsating/spooky "Female Robbery". The band, Jesse Rutherford (vocals), Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels (guitar), Mikey Margot (bass), and Bryan Sammis (drums) have youth on their side. As I struggle to get out of bed these days it is easy to lavish praise on kids. And these guys are kids! For that reason it is easy to give them a pass when it comes to identity, stage presence and overall live presentation. With that in mind their sold out performance at Bowery Ballroom 4.29.13 must be graded as an incomplete. Some more positives if you will allow. For a Monday evening show the place was jammed and most of the crowd was energetic, engaged and polite those in attendance old enough to be their parents. It must be noted that my ever growing sample size indicates concert crowds under the age of 30 are far more behaved than thirty somethings and beyond. Also, although it can adversely effect your morning routine for days to follow, seeing a concert early in the week can be rewarding in a few ways. That is, if you head to a concert on Monday you are making a firm commitment. So are the rest of those in attendance. These folks really want to see the band on stage. Worst case they are eager to see a live act and jump on the bandwagon. My posse qualified for the latter. Go to Terminal 5, or even my beloved Webster Hall, on a Thursday or Friday and the crowd is vastly different. Some are out for a good time. Some are out to get drunk. Some are there for the band. The chatter intensifies among the concert goers as the night moves on. Not to mention those evenings might find the band hitting the stage after (gasp!) 11pm. That kind of night screws up your morning routine for weeks! Anyway, the kids on stage and the kids in the crowd were clearly having fun. For my money, the hour long set was entertaining, but not captivating. Rutherford seems to be trying 1) to establish himself as a large than life lead singer in every sense of the phrase while 2) still trying to figure out who exactly he is? Is he a tough, leather jacket-wearing rap/singer jumping on stacks and leading the crowd in a sing along? Or maybe the soft spoken, misunderstood romantic you might see in an Abercrombie ad or Twilight film? He works real hard, maybe too hard. His voice is strong and his hit singles were all played to perfection. Many times a new band will try desperately to "re-work" their notable songs in an effort to show their versatility. When you roll into a town the first couple times you are better server playing them as we all know, and love them. The Neighbourhood did exactly that and both "Female Robbery" and "Sweater Weather" were high points. It was during the quieter times that Rutherford and his mates became more worrisome. Some songs were similar sounding. It was not bad, just similar. More troubling was Rutherford's styling as opposed to the rest of his crew. Sure they all wore the same crew cuts, but that is where the similarity ended. Rutherford was in all white, covered in ink, with sharpie written messages sprawled on his ripped white jeans. His bandmates wore things like Anaheim Mighty Ducks t's, wife beaters, blazers and scoop necks. All. Over. The Map. While that might not seem like much, trust me, it is. Because during those "off" moments when the song performed does not captivate your eyes start roaming. They notice a disconnect. They start wondering about cohesion. Then you start listening to the song again and think "maybe this isn't sounding quite right cause they are not ALL feeling it." "Perhaps the lead singer is wielding too much influence and turning the others off?" Listen, if your mind starts playing tricks like that then something is amiss. But, as mentioned earlier, these guys are young. They roll through NYC in June for stops at Bowery again and Music Hall of Williamsburg (tix here). Maybe this added time on the road will seem them mesh even stronger. Maturity is a wonderful necessity. Marrying maturity with the inherent adolescence rock and roll demands is a tall task. Time will tell if The Neigbourhood remains up to it.

I loved The Neighbourhood, the show was so awesome! They played nearly every song they've ever written - including their newest album! The band sounded perfect - just like their studio recordings! Wow! Also, Brighton Music Hall was a great venue, I'd never been before and I can't wait to go back. I had a lot of fun, I hope The Neighbourhood comes back to Boston soon!!! I'll DEFINITELY see them again!!

The venue was a bit more cramped than I'd anticipated, but not horrible. The Neighbourhood was just as great as I thought they'd be, but opener Little Daylight was amazing, and a band I'm looking forward to seeing a lot more from.

The crowd was young, but very excited and were clearly devoted fans. This makes for a better overall experience, in my opinion. The openers played well, and had a good mix of songs. The Neighbourhood played well, seemed to be energetic and excited to be there. Fairly engaging, and definitely good musicians. Overall a really fun time, especially for a Tuesday!

The band was amazing, opener: Little Daylight was amazing, but the acoustics at the Brighton Music Hall with the brick walls was a bit much. I should have brought ear plugs.

Saw them last night in Boston at Brighton Music Hall and it could not have been a better show! Small venue, cheap tickets, and a great band! I've been wanting to see them for a long time and this was just what I'd hoped it would be. Plus I got to meet lead singer Jesse Rutherford after the show and he was super nice! They seem to really appreciate their success and were really happy to talk with their fans for awhile. Can't wait to see them again someday!

These guys certainly know how to put on a show. They sounded fantastic (bass turned up the way it should be) and were excellent performers. I've never seen a bassist groove so hard.

The best live performance I've seen to date. The lead singer has so much energy and soul and puts it into his performance. I was a huge fan before the show, but I walked away even more impressed with the band's talent. I can't wait to see them perform again.

The NBHD is one of a kind. A different sound, an amazing collaboration of hip hop and rock. Jesse is an amazing vocalist surrounded and supported by his remarkable band. I was already in love with them, I didn't think it was possible to fall even more in love with them. But I did. Jesse is an entertainer, and a humble one at that. You could see it in his face how much he adored and truly appreciated the screaming fans as we all sang the words to every song. I couldnt help but just truly smile the whole time. They are a band you can relate to both lyrically and on a personal level. I am so glad I was able to experience them in a small venue before they start performing for thousands of people. Its a different kind of connection when you are that close to them. I think if they continue to do what they're doing, they will be my favorite band for life. I love The Neighbourhood!

The Neighbourhood put on an amazing show! The lead singer Jesse was sick during this show and they still sounded great! Even though the show was sold out the venue was small enough to easily get close to the band/stage but big enough to easily walk around if needed. Had so much fun!

I waited months to see The Neighbourhood perform live and I don't think it could have been any better, even if I planned the entire day my self. We actually got to the venue really early like(2pm in the afternoon) in order to guarantee a spot in the front since it was general admission. SO WORTH IT. Hanging out all day in LA was fun and we actually heard their sound check and saw the band while we passed the back of the venue. After we got inside, literally being at the front and against the barrier, we were incredibly close to the band that it was unbelievable. The show was perfect. Their set list order was amazing. They perfectly planned their songs in order to make that slow and intense vibe that The Neighbourhood loves and feeds off of for every aspect of their band. Multiple times during the show Jesse was standing straight in front of me and making deliberate eye contact. At one point he even kneeled down to my eye level and sang right to me. Maybe it was just my personal experience but his amount of interaction with the crowd truly makes their shows one of the best I've ever seen. The Fonda is a create small venue. I almost hope that the Neighbourhood doesn't get too big in order to stay in those small venues to preserve and enhance their intimate style that resonates through their lyrics and music as a whole. Bottom line, they sound great, they look great (Jesse is smokin), they are so cool and friendly, and overall genuinely the best concert I have ever seen. And I've been to a lot of concerts.

I was really excited to see both of the bands, but mostly The 1975. The 1975 came out and played an amazing set. I was so sad when they were done. The Neighbourhood came out and I was excited to hear them, but unfortunately I could hardly hear Jesse's singing. I don't know if something was wrong with his mic. The rest of the band sounded great, so that kind of stunk. They also didn't play an encore. But all an all it was a great show. After I bought a shirt from The 1975 and the bands were hanging out by the merch so I was able to get a picture with Matty from The 1975. I had an amazing time and I can't wait to see them both again!

The 1975 and The Neighbourhood are both talented, young bands. The crowd was eating up their cool-guy looks, and their smooth voices with multi faceted background compositions. They were entertaining to watch, and very good live! The only complaint I have is that they took a very long time to get on stage, but I suppose all "rockstars" do. They also could have been a little more interactive with the crowd, but that's my personal preference. All in all a very good live music experience! Extra points because they came out to meet their fans.

This is the second The NBHD concert I have been to in less than a year. Both times they slayed. Opening acts Kevin Abstract and Mxther had great energy and music. The Neighbour opened with their killer Ferrari. The crowd was so hyped with anticipation. The venue was packed shoulder to shoulder from pit to balconies. They didn't have visuals this year but it brought that right amount of focus on the music. Finally, the closed with their new anthem other than Sweater Weather, RIP 2 my youth, the crowd went wild. After the song, people stayed to see if there was an encore unfortunately, there wasn't. The concert was a ball

Got there about an hour early. Doors were supposedly going to open at 6, but they opened at around 7. Stood around for a long time, and then Kevin Abstract appeared. The performance was sort of bizarre but his vocals are pretty good. Mothxrs came on at about 9. Seriously terrible... best way I can put it is it's like one of those indie bands who only has one sound. Sooo at about 10 I think The NBHD finally appeared. I've seen them before, so I knew what to expect. They perform for about an hour, Jesse never really acknowledges the crowd, and I don't think they've ever done an encore. I like their music so that's why I'm giving this 3 stars. I think that they should find better opening acts, and maybe perform longer than 45 minutes to an hour. Maybe that's not in their control, but I don't know.

The opening acts were alright. The neighborhood disappointed me. The band washed out the lead singer. His vocals were trash. I would see the band with the lead singer any day though! I still love them but they need to work on their performance. Also the didn't say goodbye to their fans just walked off the stage after the last song :(

I love the Neighbourhood! However I felt like the show was too quick. It's like they were in a hurry. Also, The opening acts felt like they lasted more than the actual band I wanted to see. After the show was finished, they didn't decide to do encore and he just left. I would recommend if your just going to have a good time with a couple of friends and your want to listen to good music. Other than that, I didn't think it was such a great show.

The neighbourhood is my favorite band so I was pretty excited for this concert. I waited on line since 9 in the morning, terminal 5 should be more organized when letting people in the venue because a lot of people skipped, but I still got the second row in front of barricade. The performance was AMAZING. The energy is always going. If you not sure about seeing the nbhd YOU NEED TO GO YOU DONT WANT MISS THESE GUYS ON TOUR THEY NEVER LET DOWN.

sold out show so my friend and i decided to stay in the very back by the bar and boy i am glad we did. now i am not sure if it was because we were back there or what, but the sound was not very good. all i could hear (and feel) was the bass. but with all the young folks (yes i felt old at the show even though i am not) up towards the front, there was no way i wanted to deal with all of them. the way i could tell they were young is because there was hardly NO ONE buying alcohol :/ oh well, i would still go to another show by the neighbourhood, maybe just an outdoor one as it might be better for the sound.

The venue was great but the neighbourhood was not. They seemed rushed to get off stage, they weren't personable at all as in they didn't even acknowledge the audience and they were on for maybe 30 minutes.
