A Silent Film and Flagstaff – A Concert Opportunity

     A Silent Film is the first band that comes to mind in a discussion about bands that inexplicably aren’t as popular as we believe they should be. A Silent Film has done everything right. They tour the U.S. often. The performances are solid in every aspect – mixing, setlist balance… The frontman, Robert Stevenson, is charismatic. The band has hits that should draw attention to the rest of their discography (“You Will Leave a Mark” and "Danny, Dakota & the Wishing Well”). Still, while A Silent Film has a loyal fan base, that base should be more formidable.
     We wish A Silent Film dramatically increased success. But if there is an upside to the current U.S. situation, it’s one experienced by the fans. When this Oxford, UK band visits the San Francisco area, the performances are relaxed and intimate. Well, here comes another opportunity. Flagship and A Silent Film will be at The Independent on Monday October 19. Ticket information is available at CLICK HEREOther dates of the A Silent Film/Flagship tour are pasted at the bottom of this post (and shown in the above picture).

     A Silent Film released a first track from their upcoming album (due October 16). The track is “Lightning Strike.”

     “You Will Leave a Mark” (from the early album "The City that Sleeps")

     Quoting one of our earlier posts: Flagship is firmly planted in the Pop genre. The band is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The core members are Drake Margolnick and Michael Finster. In their visit to The Independent, the two toured with a pair of members of the band Campbell (Matt Padgett and Christopher Comfort).
