Concert Review: COIN at Iron City

October 27th, 2021 | Birmingham, AL

COIN kick off their Rainbow Dreamland Tour in Birmingham last night to a sold out crowd.

After having to cut their tour short in 2020, COIN returns to the big stage in support of their last two albums, Dreamland and Rainbow Mixtape. The band has played at Iron City on numerous occasions, with their most recent featuring Dayglow as the opener.

Fusing pop and alternative rock, COIN drew in a younger crowd who were ready to party. Party they did. Commanding stage presence, energetic performances, and expert musicianship combined to bring a full show. A fantastic lighting package sealed the deal.

The band Valley opened up the show with a warm welcome. The Canadian pop stars were a perfect match with COIN, who historically has had great support. Their energetic frontman and danceable tunes got the crowd ready and roaring for COIN.

COIN's set covered almost all the bases, from the big hits "Talk Too Much" and "Crash My Car" to slower tracks like "Cemetery". A notable track that was missing was the song that put them on the map, "Run", from their debut self titled album. It appears to have been absent from their live shows for a quite a while now. Their setlist is below:

          1. Chapstick

          2. Into My Arms

          3. I Want It All

          4. I Don't Wanna Dance

          5. Simple romance

          6. Growing Pains

          7. Don't Cry, 2020

          8. Valentine

          9. Cemetery

          10. Babe Ruth

          11. Let It All Out

          12. Malibu 1992

          13. You Are the Traffic

          14. Youuu

          15. Sprite

          16. Crash My Car

          17. Fingers Crossed

COIN continues to impress with their lives shows. As the band continues to grow, I can only see their shows getting better and better, with even higher production value. Expect them to return to the Magic City sooner rather than later.
