|Jalin Roze & 1200 hype the crowd at Mercury Ballroom|
Before talking about 1200 and Jalin Roze, I’d like to first mention how disappointed I was that I didn’t get to see Shadowpact and Touch AC. I had a prior obligation with tickets to see Ben Folds at Whitney Hall (I reviewed that show, too!). Syd was there however, and told me they were amazing, as you’d probably suspect anyway.
When I arrived at Mercury Ballroom, Jalin Roze had just started, and he was performing with a full band just like he did at last year’s Forecastle Fest. The crowd was hyped, and Jalin Roze took advantage by playing a fucking great set. Watch a video I took of Roze playing his hot track “KYGT$” below:
1200 was up next, and as usual, he didn’t disappoint. He brought the passion and intensity we’ve come to expect from him, and while this is the biggest venue I’ve seen him play, it still felt personal and intimate. Check out a video I shot of 1200 performing below:
