The British invasion continues, and rock lives as evidenced at a packed Teragram Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles, Monday night March 11. The show featured English rockers You Me at Six from Surrey. The band has been producing chart-topping hits for over a decade in their home country, packed into six diverse sounding albums. The group may be lesser known in the mainstream American music scene but judging by a packed house of elated concertgoers at the Teragram, they have a loyal following in this country as well. The Teragram is an interesting venue in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. It was opened in 2015 by New York city club purveyor Michael Swier. The old ballroom features three bars, and an adjacent restaurant bar/cafe. The 600-capacity concert hall also features a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system.

The show opened with a well-received set by the machineheart. The band features the truly dreamy voice of Los Angeles singer Stevie Scott, who teamed up with the rest of this synth-rock band from Tacoma Washington. As the venue began to fill with young Indie music lovers the next group took the stage the Dreamers. This band has created a buzz based on several songs the Indie charts and they seemed to please the crowd with their short but intense set of original music. They played "Circles" which was featured on their debut EP, In Your Dreams, which was released in 2015 and a pair of well-received singles, "Stonecold" and "Speak in Tongues," recorded in 2016 and 2017.

By the time You Me at Six began their set the large crowd was packed tightly around the stage. Fronted by charismatic lead singer Josh Franceschi, the band immediately captured the attention of the enraptured crowd. The band tore through a fourteen-song set culled from their six albums before pausing and returning for a breathless four-song encore. Many in the audience knew the chorus lines to many of the songs and sang along with the band. The group tours as a seven-member live band and the added musicians created a multi-layered texture of pure Indie rock sound that had the Teragram crowd enthusiastically responding to every song. You and Me at Six is simply a great rock band keeping the dream alive for future generations of rock music lovers.
