{RECAP} fictionist, COIN, neon trees

Concert Correspondent Danielle was able to check out Fictionist, interview alumni COIN, and Neon Trees at the 9:30 Club on Monday night -- read ahead to see what she thought!

You would have never guessed it was a Monday night if you caught the crowd at 930 Club this week. There were no sleepyheads in this group. Fictionist, COIN and Neon Trees played to a packed, energized house of fans that from start-to-finish didn’t once stop singing and dancing along with them.

Fictionist opened with a futuristic yet retro sound. Songs like “Not Over You” showcased spacey electronics and masterful electric guitar talent. High pitched vocals and resounding guitar chords were perfectly synchronized in “City At War.” These Utah boys ended on a high note with “Free Spirit” off their third independently released, self-titled album Fictionist. This head bopping-induced, dancy rock song alone should give you enough incentive to check these guys out if you haven’t already!


COIN, a teenage girl’s dream indie boy band, followed with one incredibly catchy track after another off of their debut album released just last month. The songs cooked up by these Nashville natives have a way of encapsulating the infinite energy of youth, also displayed by their bubbly awe-struck fans. Listen to “Run” and “Atlas” and you’ll be hooked for good on these summery, indie pop tracks. 

When headliner Neon Trees took the stage, the night was far from over. With theatrical, David Bowie style, frontman Tyler Glenn had everyone captivated by his gold sneakers and electrifying dance moves. The entire crowd sang along in unison to alt-pop favorites including “Animal” and “1983.” They ended with the popular “Everybody Talks” and then with a cover of “Come on Eileen”; a perfect encore for these '80s rock-inspired all-stars.

Thank you so much, Danielle!! Up next: Andrew's photo recap of Kishi Bashi and Guster at Wolf Trap!
