I caught Finish Ticket on tour with Vinyl Theatre in St. Louis, and it was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. The stage was small, but passion and energy ran high; it was clear that though Vinyl Theatre was the headliner, the majority of people were there for Finish Ticket. Having performed with huge acts like Ed Sheeran and Twenty One Pilots, Finish Ticket is growing steadily in popularity, and will likely become huge this year. They have a passionate, loyal fanbase, and it is very clear that during performances, the band feeds off this positive energy. Lead singer Brendan Hoye is a dynamic performer, keeping the crowd engaged and lively, managing to make me feel as if I was in a huge concert venue. Their music is poppy with indie, electronic, and rock vibes, heavily reminding me of Capital Cities or Two Door Cinema Club. If you’re looking for your newest summer obsession, this band is it. Try and catch them live at some point; you will have zero regrets.
