Back from a short hiatus from making music and touring, Balance and Composure set out on a tour in support of their latest release, Light We Made. Opening up the tour were Queen of Jeans and From Indian Lakes, the latter of whom saw the room fill up nearly to capacity.

By the time headliner Balance and Composure took the stage and opened with “Midnight Zone,” more people had flooded into the room and most people were visibly enjoying the new sound from this record. The rest of the show consisted of 15 songs, all of which sounded great live, but felt much too short. Following “Midnight Zone” was “Spinning,” another song off of Light We Made. The band played a few older songs like “When I Come Undone,” “Tiny Raindrop,” “Notice Me,” and “Reflection,” off of 2013’s The Things We Think We’re Missing and a few more off of 2011’s Separation. They closed out the set with the fast-paced “I Tore You Apart In My Head,” eliciting a wave of crowd surfers.
