I had been listening to Kodaline for awhile before I saw them for the first time as a last minute addition to the ACL weekend one lineup. The set was first thing Sunday morning so there weren’t a ton of people there but of the ones who were there, it felt like everyone was charmed by their Irish accents and soothing rhythmic songs.
I had the same experience when I saw them on Feb. 20 at Emo’s in Austin. Although this time, everyone knew all the songs and was singing every word back. That’s one thing I really love about concerts- being able to see a band grow from unknown to having a crowd of dedicated fans. See all photos here.
