Airport. One of my desert island bands. I could watch these guys play all night, but I’ll settle for a closing set at The Lizard.
Watching an Airport show makes me feel like Benny from the Lego Movie. Just substitute “Airport!” for “Spaceship!” These guys draw from an endless well of perfectly crafted songs about modern life filtered through a ’70s AM Radio transmission.
That there was damn near perfect. Airport just delivered the best set I’ve ever seen them play. These guys have some of the finest songs in the land. Tonight they delivered them with precision and heart. A great Rumble set.
Nicole Anguish of Daykamp Creative has been designing some amazing posters for Rock-n-Romp Boston since the event’s re-launch back in October. When she was tapped to curate the February edition of this family friendly rock show, it was no surprise that she called upon a band that gets a lot of play in the Daykamp Empire offices. Airport opened the show with their perfect mix of pop, rock, twang and ’70s AM radio nostalgia.
My goodness, do I love Airport. Every time I listen to this band I become more dependent on their glorious ’70s-radio-made sound. Here are some pictures of the band at the Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood five year anniversary party.
