Are you ready for some Sweater Weather?!
Nooooo, we don’t mean wearing actual sweaters in Houston in the middle of summer…We’re asking if you’re ready to see The Neighbourhood perform their hit song “Sweater Weather” at Bayou Music Center this Thursday, July 17th! The indie rock band (also known as The NBHD) has been touring along with Danny Brown, Travi$ Scott, 100s and White Arrows for El Tour Blanco across 21 cities in North America.
The NBHD was formed in 2011 and consists of members singer Jesse Rutherford, Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels on guitar, Michael “Mikey” Margott on bass and drummer Brandon Fried. The band released their debut album in 2013 titled I Love You which peaked 25 on the U.S Billboard charts and their single “Sweater Weather” was #1. They’ve also been on tour with Imagine Dragons, The 1975 and a Hive favorite, JMSN. Pretty good for a band that’s only 3 years old! The band is known for blending atmospheric indie rock, electronica, and hip-hop beats with melodic R&B inspired vocals. We even featured them on our first mixtape Field Trips Forever. The NBHD is definitely a group that can appeal to even the pickiest of music elitists.
Mo City resident and hip hop artist Travi$ Scott and unconventional Detroit rapper Danny Brown are also big names on the El Tour Blanco. Both were featured as XXL’s Freshman Class covers and are guaranteed lively performers. I had the chance to watch Danny Brown last year during his tour with trap and bass artist, Baauer (of Harlem Shake fame) and although I wasn’t familiar with all of his songs, I was pretty hyped with the audience by his performance. That’s a really good thing in Houston, considering our reputation for having dead crowds. Travis Scott’s cameo with Drake during Houston Appreciation Weekend was one of the moments that made the concert an amazing one in my book. Nothing like the entire room at Warehouse Live jumping in unison and yelling along with Travi$ “We so high, UPPER ECHELON!”
