American Youth at the 7th Street Entry

A crowd gathered Tuesday night at the 7th Street Entry for what many called “a night of youthfulness.” Carroll and Youth at Large led the night to make way for American Youth. Hailing from a number of different cities, the group fuses together a unique blend of vocal harmonies with a mix of folk and rock while bringing energy not quite like anyone else.

The five-person group filled the small stage and got the crowd of about 50 people on their feet (or at least tapping) from the very first song. Lead singer Ben Garrett’s voice is undeniably appealing, and when paired with harmonies from Emily Cline and Philip Michael Christensen Jr., it makes for a sound surely worth listening to. The addition of auxiliary percussion such as xylophone, sleigh bells, and tambourine compliments the slick and rocking bass and guitar parts well.

Although Garrett admitted feeling a little under the weather, jokes were  plentiful. From pointing out his drink of choice (herbal tea and whiskey) to Christensen saying, “Time to look like Rambo,” as he tied a bandana around his head, or even asking the whole audience sing “Happy Birthday” to Cline, you can tell this group likes to have fun. All in all, American Youth deserves a listen, and proves you can still party like it’s the weekend no matter what night of the week it may actually be.
