DALLAS- As you walked through the doors of the Bomb Factory at 7 p.m. last night, the crowd seemed to be small. If you were to walk through the same doors at 8 p.m., the room would have been packed from wall to wall. The band Purity Ring has the power to bring people together.

 

Before they could take the stage, however, two bands took the stage to get the audience prepared for what was to come. Born Gold played first, playing fast beats, with an amazing light show to back them up.

 

The next band was Braids who livened up the crowd with their female singer, Raphaelle Standell-Preston. She was witty, had an amazing voice and kept complimenting her best friends, Purity Ring.

 

Finally, after Braids was done, and a 40 minute wait, Purity Ring took the stage in an explosion of lights, starting off with songs from its newest album, Another Eternity. After a couple of songs they went into songs from their first album, Shrines.

 

It felt like I went to a concert, along with a special effects light show. Purity Ring already had an amazing voice, but it was amplified by the strobe lights and lasers. Every inch of the Bomb Factory was lit up at some point, and it made the experience that much more amazing.

 

As the show was coming close, they closed out with “Begin Again” and my favorite, “Bodyache.” By the end of the night my throat was sore from singing along, and my feet were throbbing from standing for four hours straight. None of this matters though, because Purity Ring made it worth it.

 

I can promise you the next time the band stops in Dallas, or anywhere close by, you can catch me in the crowd.
