Cain’s Ballroom is one of many concert venues in downtown Tulsa, and recently, Judah and the Lion paid a second visit to Cain’s on October 26th, 2017 and did not leave fans disappointed. With their most recent album, Folk Hop n’ Roll, being recently released, Judah and the Lion have been on their Going to Mars tour. The four boys from Nashville, Tennessee bring a strange but unique sound to the stage with every song that leaves fans energized and mesmerized.

The boys have been non-stop touring for the past couple of years, and you may have seen them open for Twenty One Pilots on the second leg of their Emotional Roadshow tour this year alongside Jon Bellion.

This tour’s opening acts, Tyson Motsenbocker, an acoustic guitarist from San Diego, California had a short set but the crowd was left wishing for more. He brought feel-good, soft, indie music to the stage. His sense of humor and charm made everyone fall in love with his music if they didn’t already know him.  

The Academic, a boy band from Ireland are definitely someone else you want to be on the lookout for. The four boys got everyone perfectly ready for Judah and the Lion later that evening. With some of their more popular songs such as “Mixtape 2003” and “Bear Claws,” the boys had everyone jumping and singing the lyrics by the end of their set, even if they didn’t know who they were before that night.

Starting their set with a cover of “Booty Wurk” by T-Pain, Judah and the Lion keeps you dancing from start to finish. With fan favorites such as “Take It All Back” and “Suit and Jacket” from their newest album Folk Hop n’ Roll (Deluxe), and a cover of “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers is something everybody in the venue seemed to enjoy as well.  Judah and the Lion find a way to get the crowd involved in every aspect possible, even if that means bringing a girl dressed in a dinosaur costume on stage to sing the final chorus.

With fun little shenanigans in between, Judah wants everyone to feel like a part of a “Hippie Dance(ing)” family. The passion the bands put into their music is definitely transferred to the crowd and everybody leaves feeling better than when they walked in.

The Going to Mars tour recently ended but don’t worry, frontman Judah Akers said many times throughout the night they would definitely be coming back to Tulsa. You can also check them out in Oklahoma City on February 3rd, 2018. Buy your tickets here https://www.ticketmaster.com/Judah-the-Lion-tickets/artist/1863338
