Avatar live review - Islington Academy, London
Venue: Islington Academy, London
Swedes put in a marquee performance
For a band that can only be described as a cross between System Of A Down and a circus jingle, Avatar’s crowd is proof that being off-the-wall is no barrier to attracting fans; in Avatar’s case, it’s worked in their favour. Johannes Eckerstrom is a reliable showman for whom performance and theatrics are as important as the music.
