Thousand Foot Krutch, Building 429
April 26, 2007
by Tracy & C.J. Darlington
Concert goers lined up hours before the doors opened. Many of them were shivering in the frigid air by the time 6:30 rolled around. But their wait was worth it. Unfortunately, Portable Sounds tour openers Family Force 5 were not able to make this showing due to their transportation breaking down somewhere in the wilds of America. The crowd hushed as the emcee announced it, and you could almost feel the disappointment drop over the room like a blanket.
But the emotion was shortlived as Building 429 kicked things off and immediately held the crown in the palm of their hands with songs like "Glory Defined" and new cuts off their Iris to Iris release.
Thousand Foot Krutch rocked the house, as expected, frontman Trevor McNevan sporting his trademark skeleton shirt and powerfully delivering TFK hits "Rock Fist", "The Art of Breaking", and "Absolute". These guys know how to rock.
By the time Toby hit the stage, we were all pumped and ready for the amazing musicianship of his band and backup singers. A Tobymac concert is an experience---one every Christian music fan should have the privilege of feasting their eyes on. It's a montage of colored lights, grooving dancers, and amazing musicians. From hits off the Portable Sounds cd including "Boomin'", "Made to Love", and "Suddenly" to favorites like "Extreme Days", "Irene", and "Jesus Freak" . . . you name it. Toby delivered it.
