The Sons Of Pitches – Boiler Alert! (The Sons Pitches)

By | Published on Saturday 16 August 2014

Packing in more energy than a trough of Red Bull, The Sons of Pitches give a capella a real kick up the backside with this absolutely blistering late-night show. Blending music, improv and comedy around a loose movie theme, the talent on display here was unreal – the beatboxing rhythm section alone deserve medals. The Sons produce several songs with theme and genre suggested by the audience: we saw them nail UK garage, punk-rock, Britpop and even opera! Some of the comedy skits were a bit weak, and the finale song was perhaps a little underwhelming after the strength of all that had gone before. But I still had a big stupid grin on my face the entire time.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 25 Aug.
