Iration at The Moon
Iration came to Tallahassee to start the leg of their Florida tour last Tuesday at The Moon Venue. The band originates from California so it is interesting to see them over here on the East coast. The Moon is a great venue, a very spacey and unique vibe inside the doors. It is perfect for smaller shows, where a lot of seating is not needed. Iration stopped in Tallahassee Tuesday, then had a day off followed by four straight nights in a row. So, the Tallahassee fans definitely got a good show as far as timing is concerned. The band seemed well-rested, energetic, and ready to party, considering a day to relax was following!
In regards to their performance, they played some solid reggae rock. It was my first time seeing them live, but was similar to a Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, or Soja sound. I recognized a few of their popular songs, such as “Time Bomb”, “Falling”, and “Summer Nights” that were played. They also covered the Bob Marley song “Is this Love”, which seemed to really hook the crowd. They seemed to stick to their originals for the most part though, which all sounded good. At the end, the band brought a guest performer on stage with a ukulele, which was fun to see and would have been nice to see more like-wise entertainment. Ultimately, Iration played some quality tunes and The Moon did a great job providing those tunes to the city of Tallahassee!
