Concert Review: Snow Patrol in Austin, Texas

I have been lucky once more. I got to see Snow Patrol one more time this year. They were performing at the Austin Music Hall this week as one of their very last tour dates of their Fallen Empire Tour. I love their music, their sound and their lyrics. Though this was the third time I saw a performance of the Fallen Empire Tour, it was as great as the previous two I saw earlier this year in London and Cologne. I love the smaller venue and the Austin gig has probably been my favorite just because of this.

In the end, In the end
There’s nothing more to life than love is there?

[In the End]

Just take the hand that’s offered
And hold on tight
This isn’t everything you are

There’s joy not far from here, right
I know there is
This isn’t everything you are

[This isn’t everything you are]

These accidents of faith and nature
They tend to stick in the spokes of you
But every now and then the trend bucks
And you’re repaired by more than glue

[Lightening Strikes II]

Snow Patrol was supported by Jake Bugg and the concert was co-headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. I missed Jake Bugg, but saw Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. I actually and somewhat surprisingly quite liked him and his band. Their songs were pretty Oasis-esque, but that’s not a bad thing at all.
