The German alternative rockers burned the house down last night with special guests Vin Mariani. This was their first time in Atlanta since their 2018 "Blossom" tour, where they played The Buckhead theatre with Lewis Capaldi.

Musicians all around, every member of the band seemed to cycle between their guitar and keys. Bongos, a large floor beat pad, and a harmonica brought a slew of sounds to the stage. Speaking of the harmonica, fans were treated to harmonica solos on the band's slow burner "Loveland." All around an amazing performance musically.

Despite the large audience, The Tabernacle is a rather intimate venue. Milky Chance took advantage of this, bringing up the crowd lights on multiple occasions to talk to the fans, waving and talking to individuals in the pit. Even fans in the balconies were treated with this connection.

Originally, a band named Giant Rooks were set to open the show. After the frontman was unable to perform, Milky Chance called up Atlanta natives Vin Mariani to fill in. Despite getting the call just the night before, the duo were ready to perform on the big stage their first time performing at The Tab. Their electronic fusion of dance and R'n'B brought a fun and light-hearted energy to get the crowd moving.

One thing that can get lost in a live performance is a group's ability to command the stage and crowd. Milky Chance has no problem with that, strutting up and down the stage with ease, dancing, moving, and jumping all around. The fans followed suit, seeming to have a fantastic time.

Another note, the band's crew were on point. Not only did they sound good, but their lighting package was insane to say the least. Dozens of moving lights, and grated LED wall, and plenty of strobes light up the room like a carnival.
