Touchstone at Boston Music Room, London - live review
Venue: Boston Music Room, London
Touchstone bring their new sound to London
The Boston Music Room is perhaps only one-third full when The Room take the stage tonight, and it remains stubbornly under-occupied for the remainder of the evening. It’s a Friday night, with two good bands – where were you all?
Those who did turn up will have seen The Room’s blend of AOR hooks and prog on full display in the opening Carrie, with drummer Chris York busting out some dextrous stick tricks. Their live sound has more meat on its bones than their studio output might suggest. The Book touches on Neal Morse Band territory, with a bouncing energy that nods towards 60s pop and features an impressive guitar solo from Steve Anderson.
