Enter Shikari supported by The Algorithm
Back from a sell out headline tour across Europe, Enter Shikari returned to UK shores to play a final, very special show for us and all their army of fans at the 100 Club. With queues around the block in the January rain, anticipation and excitement for seeing the band play such an intimate date was at fever pitch.
Electro metal outfit, The Algorithm got the crowd going with their unique, ear bending sound whilst fans got stuck in to the bands own brand beer, Sssnakepit.
As the final few punters crammed through the doors and into the mosh pit in waiting, the band soon made their entrance and the club exploded with the post hardcore sound of ‘System/Meltdown’. As they ripped through the likes of ‘Stalemate’, ‘Hello Tyrannosaurus’ and ‘Return to The Energizer’, a sea of bodies supported the endless stage dive and surfers who threw themselves into the heaving mass creating a consistent tangle of feet and heads.
Ever the showman, lead singer Rou Reynolds got fully involved and carried by the crowd made his way to the sounds booth opposite the stage and perched precariously in black Chucks over the adoring audience. Giving the security and crowds a much needed breather, he made his way back to the stage for a mellower moment. Buoyed by the infectious energy, they were soon back to full throttle and by the time they encored with ‘Arguing with Thermometers’ a stage invasion had taken place.
2013 marks ten years of Enter Shikari and judging by this show, there’s no chance they will be slowing down any time soon. Solid, rock!
