Strangers You Know at the Pike Room
-Article and Photos by Taylor Ohryn-
While waiting for the opening act for the evening to get their band mates together, I find Strangers You Know manager Christian sitting on top of their tour bus. After an invite to join him, we speak about the story of the artist and the con-artist. We discuss how group member Grady snuck into Coachella via Artist Alley and ran into Adam. The event brought the boys together as if it was destiny that wrote the screenplay that day.
"This will be the day everything will change." seemed to be the motto for Grady as he said out loud to himself (or to anyone who was willing to hear.) Their manager was hoping that bit of optimism will be practiced at Today's show. Their set time was now up as they move to the Pike Room inside the Crofoot to perform their set.
Strangers You Know music is a crossbreed of California charm rock mixed in with an electronic edge. The show consisted of the group testing out newly performed songs to covers including "Roses" from Outkast. In theory, these two guys in their early twenties will have no problem getting the attention of the girls. As for their music, they shall have to wait and see. The potential to grow is there and alive as long as they stay optimistic.
