Imagine Dragons: Live at The Observatory 10/10/12

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Imagine Dragons. Even if you don't yet know their name, you know their song "It's Time", which is virtually inescapable everywhere from radio, to being covered on Glee. Imagine Dragons took the stage last night at The Observatory in Santa Ana, as support for AWOLNATION and turned in what has to be one of the Top 10 live performances of 2012. From the moment they took the stage, frontman Dan Reynolds and company had the sold-out crowd in the palm of their hands, singing nearly every lyric of every song right back to the band. In his interactions with the crowd Reynolds exhibited a positively infectious level of joy, and a genuine appreciation for how lucky they are to be riding their current wave of success. As Imagine Dragons finish out this tour and head overseas for November before returning to, among other things open for Garbage at San Manuel Casino in December we strongly advise you catch them live while they are still on their way up and playing reasonably-sized venues, because if this current tour is any indicaction, this band is headed nowhere but up.
