Sun 13 Feb – The Bravery + Transfer
I arrived at The Ruby Lounge before doors opened and was privileged to catch Transfer sound check before the gig. At 8.45pm Matthew Molarius, Shaun Cornell, Andy Ridley and Jason Cardenas graced the staged welcomed by screaming from their fans on the barrier. It’s great to see Transfer’s support of fans growing. I think Manchester had the most ‘babies’ at the tour so far, which you could see they were genuinely thrilled about.
The set consisted of 7 songs, most of which came from their debut album 'Future Selves'. Front man Matthew Molarius approached the iconic microphone during the opener of ‘Losing Composure’, Transfer’s debut single, which immediately sent the crowd up into a storm. Followed by songs such as ‘Like a Funeral,’ drummer Andy Ridley’s favourite ‘Wake to Sleep,’ with Shaun Cornell’s true rock and roll style on the keyboard and the genius guitar solo from Jason Cardenas during the final song ‘White Horse,’ Transfer definitely made their mark on the evening.
