Concert Review (2017) by Lysergic Sound Department

"When We Met is easily one of the most fitting names I’ve ever come across as they exude that feeling of when you met the love of your life. They often start soft with a drum machine and a two piece and climb very slowly to suddenly but flowingly break out of their pop shells like popcorn out of a kernel. These two have undeniable chemistry together! Lyrically they blew me away and had me beginning to think someone must’ve dosed my drink while out smoking. I’m the type to dance or rage depending on the show and I very well could have to this but as I stood there all I could do was prop myself up on the wall next to the stage in awe of how perfect their sound truly was. Melissa Dorres is another favorite Bassist/vocalist in town for me. With a beautifully accessible and relatable voice she is an essential aspect to their overall sound and style and makes an awesome team with Bryan Casey, the guitarist who is a king of the high end of a guitar."
"Usually, to be honest, I hate drum machines. I think they sound overly fake and I’m a drummer lover myself so I tend to like the real deal. That said, I told Bryan later that evening that they should stick with it because it works so well and gives them more freedoms to merely go off without the worry of beat timings and synthesizers as well. Bryan will be the first to tell you he wishes they didn’t put in  as much effort as they truly do into what are actually not drum machines at all, they are back tracks of drums, synth, piano, alien pads, and midi programming Bryan has played and recorded himself. I highly recommend these balls of fun as I do the other two bands. I was sorry to have to leave early to pick Rachel up but Ill definitely be dragging her out to many more to come."

"PS: When We Met created a condom promo. Very clever with regards to their band name. Had to pick one up." - Alex Why of Lysergic Sound Department
