Built to Spill – The Social Orlando

A few weeks ago, a friend asked if I’d join him for the Built to Spill show at The Social. Even though I’d never heard of the band, I’m always up for Live music, so I agreed to go.

Apparently, I was the only one who hadn’t heard of this band, because Thursday night’s show was SOLD OUT!

Built to Spill - October 14, 2010

The band, led by Doug Martsch, squeezed on stage for a 2-hour show full of crowd favorites … noting that the shallow stage made them feel like they were hanging like frames on a wall.

Built to Spill’s music is so cohesive it felt like a tightly knit sweater, and the best vocal comparison I could come up with is a (hopefully flattering) comparison to Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard.

The Social is still my favorite music venue in Orlando. The sound is great, the location even better. Next up? Neon Trees.
