First-time Las Vegas headliners The Head and The Heart proved that “you can get lost in the music for hours” during the band’s April 11 concert at Brooklyn Bowl. The musicians didn’t fall short of creating an intimate and memorable experience for their fans.

The stage was set with foliage and greenery that made the space feel warm and inviting. Dim lighting and a subtle neon sign announcing their tour, Signs of Light, created a peaceful and ethereal environment—an ambiance you’d expect from the indie-folk band from Seattle.

After walking onstage to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual,” the band opened the show with its latest single, “All We Ever Knew,” which got the crowd completely immersed in the music for the next hour and a half. Old favorites like “Ghosts”, “Lost In My Mind” and “Winter Song” trickled in between new tracks such as “City of Angels”, “Oh My Dear” and “Take a Walk.” The band ended its set with a three-song encore featuring a track from each of their albums.

The Head and The Heart have a special ability to make you feel like you’ve just watched a few of your closest friends perform. From the energy they bring on stage to the power behind their lyrics, they continue to leave their fans wanting more.
