The Temper Trap

The Temper Trap

THE TEMPER TRAP IN CONCERT:Indie darlings the Temper Trap quickly shot to fame in 2008 with their anthemic track "Sweet Disposition", and they haven't slowed down since. The Australian group plays bright, guitar-driven rock with a fervor and energy that always get the crowd pumped up during their live shows. Whether they're performing the track that launched their career or tearing through songs from their 2012 self-titled debut, the Temper Trap always has ticket buyers singing and clapping along on their must-see tours. BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:Hailing from Down Under, the Temper Trap formed in 2005 when the band members met while working at a Melbourne clothing store.

I am an avid Neighbourhood and Temper Trap fan. I had originally bought tickets to see Temper Trap and then was VERY pleasantly surprised that the Neighbourhood was opening for them and I was beyond excited. Both bands were incredible as was the venue. I would definitely see both again and at the Fillmore.

The Energy These Aussies Put In Their Performances Is Remarkable. Some People Say They Are Similar To U2, But I Say They Have Their Own Unique Sound. I Took My Kid Sister Along And - For This Being Her First Show - She Absolutely Loved It. She Even Gave Serious Praise To Opening Act "Darker My Love", Who Were Very Good As Well. Great Energy, Great Show, Great Band. Looks As If These Aussie Chaps Are On Their Way To Very Special Things. All The Best To Them. Cheers.

Most people came to see Temper Trap perform their hit single "sweet disposition" made famous in the movie, 500 days of summer. However, Doogie, impressed everyone with his soothing, falsetto and multitalented skills on the drums and guitar. The setting was simple, but it made the focus solely on the music. The drums thumping and vibrating through the walls and the ground. You couldn't just stand still. You had to bop your head or move your hips or tap the floor with each beat. The band showed everyone that they're more than just sweet... they're severely amusing and gratifying.

Knew the music was good, hadn't realised how much better they were live. Mandagi is the new Freddie Mercury - I hope he takes that as a compliment!

Great show, great venue. These guys rocked. Love love LOVE his voice. Too bad they kept having sound issue thru the first half of the show. I don't like watching the singer have to repeatedly tell the sound guys to turn down or up a mic.

The Temper Trap was soo amazing! Everything was just perfection,the music, the lighting, Dougie's dancing, and most of all the energy. The band had the best energy throughout the whole thing. It was so nice to see them all smiling at eachother because they knew their audience was enjoying it. I truely enjoyed it. I will never forget that performance. If The Temper Trap comes back to Atlanta i'm most definitley going 100%.

The temper trap is a show that no one should miss. They bring energy, musicianship and talent to the stage and they feed off of the crowd. It's like a mixture of Interpol, Phoenix, Local Natives and U2 put together with one hell of a light show and an amazing set list. The crowd tries to stay sitting down in their seats but at one of these shows, you have to get up and move....because the music demands it.

Put on a great performance, but they played a very short set. Felt like they played more like an opener than the main attraction. However, the songs they did play were fantastic. They are some truly talented musicians. The venue is great too. Not a single bad seat in the house.

The opening band was pretty good and definitely energized the environment. Then Temper Trap finally came on and gave one of the best shows I have ever seen!! The music, presence, and all around experience was unforgettable. Also, the crowd there was a good group, not obnoxious or anything like at some other concerts. Total win.

Great location at Roseland Ballroom. The was a good opening band called "the neighborhood". About The temper trap the drummer had some really groovin beats, while the basist and guitarist really jammed out to some of there best songs. Lastly the vocalists was out of this world with his amazing ability to sing. I highly recommend The temper trap to everyone.

For me a really good concert is one that makes you forget time and everything around you. You dance the night away because the music and the feeling transported through this music is so good. The Temper Trap was exactly like this: just amazing!

From the beginning to the end it was amazing! The band is full of energy and the lead singer is very talented. From having an amazing voice to being able to play so many different instruments was just entertainment to the max. I cannot forget to mention the music. Every song he sang was great. You don't need to know the Temper Trap in order to enjoy their concerts!

This was my first time attending a concert for The Temper Trap...It was more than what I had expected! The opening act was great and it really got the crowd pumping adrenaline for the main act to come on. However, the only thing I will make a critique on was the half an hour of time that was spent preparing, checking, and RE-checking the wires and musical instruments. It was rather irritating for the opening act to play a few songs and then have the crowd left waiting there for a while. It would have been nice if half of what was needed to be prepared was done prior to when The Temper Trap got on stage to perform. Other than that, the entire show was absolutely incredible! I enjoyed the lighting/visual very much as it really set a great mood and atmosphere to the entire show. Can't wait for The Temper Trap to come back to NYC!!!

First of all I loved the venue. Small enough crowd to make the show seem personal, but still fueled with the excitement of a larger crowd. The set list was fantastic. So glad they came back and encored with Soldier On and of course Sweet Disposition. Wild Belle was a pretty solid opening band as well. And the best part was tickets were only $20!

I am highly impressed by the performance Temper Trap gave. At first I was slightly concerned that Dougy's voice wouldn't have as good a quality as it does the recorded version. I was happily surprised to find that his voice sounded just as good/almost better than it does on the record. The venue had great acoustics and lighting that really added to the show. I was intrigued the entire time and the setlist they played had every song I wanted to hear except one. They ended the show with Sweet Disposition which is their best and most popular song. Overall please with the experience and would highly recommend anyone to see Temper Trap while they're in America.

The group keep us going with their energy and style. Involve the crowd and keep the audience dancing and singing. One thing was different is having 18 year old kids.

Excellent gig despite a venue that wasn't best suited to the sound or expectation of Temper Trap fans. TT don't need much space to please, but Terminal 5 presented an awkward vacuum to fill. However, the sound was distinctive and not all lost despite the surrounding. Dougie's voice was spectacular as always although somewhat lost on sections of the audience. The set was superb, both albums all just about covered, what more can a fan ask for? All said, this was the highlight of my trip to New York.

We were visiting Vancouver for the first time. While taking a tour through Stanley Park, we saw where the concert would be held. After the tour we immediately purchased our tickets to the show. The venue is very cool. Right in the middle of the lush greenery of Stanley Park. The sound system was loud but nice and clear. It felt good to really feel the bass. There was plenty of space to move around or get further back if the speakers became too loud. There's even a grassy knoll further back where everyone had blankets that they were sitting on. I hadn't been a huge Temper Trap before going. But, they put on a great show and were much better live. I was a little surprised to find that they didn't sell alcohol at the Malkin Bowl. And there were a ton of security people watching the crowd for anyone who might have snuck anything in.

One of the best concerts ive ever been to. Didn't care too much for the opening band though, sorry. I was pleased that the band not only met but exceeded my expectations. I've been following TTT since I heard them on KCRW a few years back and I'm so glad I was able to see them live. My only complaint is that there was no place to sit and unfortunately, there were too many people pushing there way towards the stage where there wasn't much room left. Many of these people were drunk and spilling their drinks on others and some dropping their cups altogether. I've had better experiences at other venues. I definitely recommend seeing TTT. I would like to see them again, I just hope they choose a venue with seating next time.

Temper Trap rocks and their new album is smooth, soulful and gentle, with a great sound. Doug has wonderful stage presence, the band is synced and I am amazed how awesome when they sing together, how great it is. Doug - your voice and your range is what gets me! It's perfect! Love the moves and your commitment. Saw you last year in San Diego (Conditions album) and you rocked the House of Blues. This concert was a bit smoother, love the setlist with new stuff and Conditions album. I told all the music foodies who didn't know Temper Trap to put it on their list and enjoy! They have and they are! Love this band!

After seeing The Temper Trap live I realized that recordings of them don't do them justice. They were wonderful performers and the show exceeded my expectations which were already quite high. This seriously is not something that you would want to miss. There are bands who don't sound as good live, but they actually sounded better, just amazing in every single way.

We saw TT at the Roseland in August - and they BLEW US AWAY. It made us want to see them again at this December to Remember event at the Crystal Ballroom....what a disappointment!! The sound was muddy, the lighting was HORRIBLE...they looked like they were in a fog and shadows the whole show. The bass was cranked too high, and it drowned out the rest of the band, and just reverberated in the room. I love the Crystal for the setting, but the stage lighting and sound system left much to be desired. I'd go see TT again in the future for sure! But not at the Crystal.

The Temper Trap is great on iTunes, but much, much better live. Songs came to life and an avalanche of energy poured out on stage. I would definitely see them again... and again.

Delphic was an incredible opening act for this performance. Their sound was energetic and was virtually identical to how they sound on their CD. But while their performance was great, the Temper Trap was truly unforgettable! The venue was perfect for their sound and charisma. Their line up of songs was truly amazing and very well play. They didn't mimic their sound off their album exactly, but in turn, they changed their their playing style ever so slightly as to give their stage performance just a little something extra all while putting on a great show and still sounding amazing.

First of all, I don't live in New York City, so I traveled there just for this concert. It was definitely worth the trip out and it allowed me the excuse to take a vacation. I would recommend any fan of music to see The Temper Trap! In fact, I already have recommended it to a friend already! :)

The Temper Trap put on such an AMAZING SHOW!! Literally one of the best concerts I have ever been to. I started listening to tham on a recent holiday to Australia and I feel in love with them and was estatic to be able to see them in the States. I met them afterwards and they were really cool and chill and asked me about my trip! AWESOME BAND!! Thanks House of Blues!!!

I remember buying tickets for this show on a whim, and then when the week of the show came, I almost questioned myself as to why I bought the tickets. I am a fan of The Temper Trap, but I only truly knew a couple of songs. Now, after seeing them, buying those tickets was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They are absolutely amazing live. Dougy's voice is angelic, and they have such a contagious energy. Even though they played many songs from their new album that I hadn't listened to yet, I fell in love with all the songs right then and there. I was in awe the whole night. They are also so humble and genuine; they signed merch and took photos with us after the show and they were so kind and warm. If you are on the fence on whether you should see them or not, please do. This was easily one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

Hands down one of the best concerts of my life. There's nothing like seeing one of your favorite bands at a local venue like Variety Playhouse, especially given The Temper Trap's fame. Great amount of songs from their old album and their new album. Their live performance is also amazing. I'll definitely be back next time they're in town!

Pretty good show but if you go to see this band you need to know that the lead singer, Dougy, is an 'ar-teest' and he made it very clear that it is far beneath him to play Fader, a hit song that really helped them break out and that pretty much everyone in the paying audience wanted to hear. You know maybe want-to-be bands like The Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, U2, Peter Gabriel, The Who.........can be cool and disappoint their fans by not playing all their hits like the currently do when they get to be as big and 'cool' as Dougy/The Temper Trap. Lot of unhappy/disappointed fans.

The show was probably one of the most amazing ones I have ever been to. The lighting was fabulous and the set list completely had the crowd going crazy. They opened with London's Burning, which completely set the mood for the entire night. Vocals and all instruments were right on target and I could not have asked for a more amazing performance. It was their last show in America for the year and New York definitely got a great show out of it. I would totally recommend that anyone who is a fan go see them because it is worth the money and time.

Temper Trap was just awesome. One of the most energetic bands I have seen to date. They sang all the right songs, and many of them were improved beyond imagination. 'Fader' and 'Drum Song' were definitely some of the best. Science of Fear was just incredible, and truly a chilling message in the lyrics. 'Soldier On' really hit me right in the feels.. Dougy has such an amazing and versatile voice. The venue (State Theatre) was 3/5. Small, but that's not always a bad thing. Sound was a bit muddied in my opinion, and a bit too loud from anywhere except on the upper level (where it sounded washed out.) Overall, a great show. Best part of this venue was the bar staff.. friendly, quick with the orders, and never made me a bad or light drink. A+ crew.
