Half Moon Run – A Recommended Concert Opportunity

     On Friday October 4, Half Moon Run will appear at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco. This is the day after the visit to the same venue by the Australian group Jagwar Ma. We grabbed tickets for both. 
      The San Francisco appearance by Half Moon Run is just one in what is going to be an exhausting schedule that includes two continents and at least fifteen different countries. The schedule is pasted at the bottom of this post.
     Half Moon Run is a Canadian band, currently based in Montreal. Depending upon your source, there are three or four members. Even the band’s Facebook page seems a little unsure of the number. But we’re going with four. That said, the members of Half Moon Run are Devon Portielje (vocals, guitar and percussion), Conner Molander (vocals, guitar and keyboard), Dylan Phillips (vocals, drums and keyboard), and Isaac Symonds (vocals, percussions, mandolin, keyboard and guitar).
     Half Moon Run has opened for Of Monsters and Men and Mumford & Sons (and continue to do so). It’s apparent from the below video that the band has the stage presence and the hit song to draw concert-goers on their own.
     "Call Me in the Afternoon" 

     “Full Circle” – The guitar that starts around the 1:00 minute mark is an attention grabber.

     “Dark Eyes” – The quieter side of Half Moon Run
