Review + Photos: The Joy Formidable at the Independent

The Joy Formidable (photo: Patric Carver) The Joy Formidable returned to San Francisco Friday night at the Independent. Tancred was orginaly set to join them as the opening act, but due to a date change Joy Formidable was flying practically solo, with a DJ as their only opener. This was fine, and DJ Omar Perez did a good job of weaving in some more obscure tunes with standards. However, it kind of set the tone for the whole night. Things were good, but they weren’t great. When I think of the Joy Formidable, I think of a vibrance, a charge [...]

Photos: The Joy Formidable gave it all at the Great American Music Hall

The Joy Formidable (photo: Ian Young) Review by Ian Young If there's a band that epitomizes having fun on stage (or in the crowd) it's Welsh rock band The Joy Formidable. The energized, smiling and witty trio played their hearts out last night at the Great American Music Hall to a crowd who loved every minute of it. The up-and-coming English band Everything Everything opened with a set that was equally as exciting.

The Joy Formidable: "It’s not just volume, but dynamic and passion."

The Joy Formidable – "Whirring" When Welsh rock trio The Joy Formidable resolved to record the follow-up to last year’s critically praised debut, The Big Roar, the band did not settle on a studio in New York, Los Angeles or their home base of London. Instead, vocalist/guitarist Ritzy Bryan, bassist/boyfriend Rhydian Dafydd and drummer Matt Thomas decamped to a cabin in the woods of Maine. Bryan said her band, which kicks off a 2012 tour with two sold-out shows at The Independent next week, enjoys being in nature, be it the wilderness of New England, or the Arizona desert, which [...]
