Lumineers specialize in audience participation
A few weeks ago, the Lumineers were in the midst of the South by Southwest shuffle. The Denver band was playing a quick gig at a makeshift concert venue during the annual music conference: a downtown church in Austin, Texas. Amps and microphones were in place near the altar, but the Denver band abandoned them to stand on pews and wander the aisles. The group thrashed away on their instruments and invited the audience to sing with them, setting up a rousing call-and-response that made the lack of amplification irrelevant.
