You’ll need to bring a few things to a Walk The Moon concert. First, make sure you have your Walk the Moon tickets. Second, make sure you’re ready to dance and sing-a-long. Lastly, you’ll need to bring some face paint.
The band might provide face paint for you, but just in case they don’t it’s a good idea to have your own supply. The band will paint their faces too. They started the tradition of daubing their mugs back in 2011. When we talk about coloring the money maker we don’t mean like the members of KISS or Insane Clown Posse. We mean a few designs on the cheeks and forehead. You know, something tasteful.
What Genre is Walk The Moon?
Walk The Moon plays alternative rock slash indie rock that has elements of new wave, power pop, and synthpop. Their sound translates well to the concert stage.
On top of their bright and energetic sound, Walk The Moon has plenty of rousing and crowd friendly songs like “Different Colors” and “Talking is Hard.”
Nicholas Petricca is the perfect frontman to connect the audience to his band’s prominent guitar riffs, infectious bass lines, and boogie-friendly beats. Petricca is known to charm audiences which are generally on the younger side.
