UTG PHOTOS: Twenty One Pilots & New Politics (4/26/13)

Twenty One Pilots

Under The Gun’s photographer, Tori Thomas attended the Twenty One Pilots show featuring New Politics and Five Knives at the LC Pavilion in Columbus, OH on April 26, 2013.

I arrived to this show expecting nothing but surprises, especially with this being a hometown show for Twenty One Pilots. First in the lineup was Five Knives, however I was unable to make it in time to see their set. Judging from a previous show I saw them at opening for TOP, I’m sure they set the mood for the evening with a flawless performance.

Next up was New Politics, who got the crowd in an energized mood as they always do. Admittedly, I have never previously listened to New Politics but their performance made me an instant fan. If you have an opportunity to see them live, I highly recommend it. Soon came time for the headliner and hometown heroes, Twenty One Pilots. I’ve never been to a show with so many surprises and endless energy. Every time I’ve seen TOP they have given everything they can, but it seemed as if they doubled that for their hometown. Frontman Tyler Joseph proved that he loves climbing around the stage by ascending every possible structure he was physically able to. To add to the extraordinary performance, drummer Josh Dun had a drum kit secured to a piece of wood and had the crowd hold him up while he was performing. Furthermore, both Tyler and Josh got small “X’s” tattooed live on stage to forever remember this special show in their hometown. To conclude their set, they brought the Ohio State Drumline onstage to assist them. Overall, there was an array of surprises throughout the night and something no TOP fan wanted to miss. I recommend seeing them live regardless of location; they always give their all and love crowd interaction while letting loose for their fans.
