Iamwe @ Crescent Ballroom| 1/19/13
We're going to need another venue.

Iamwe is a rare exception in indie music. Last night, the local rockers packed Crescent Ballroom to release their album, Run Wild.

After touring the East Coast with Anberlin, the boys returned to their hometown to play their first headlining show. Yeah, ever. Considering the rate at which the band has gained popularity, it's no surprise the show sold out. And for the first time ever, I craved for a show to be in a larger venue.
