Concert Review: Inhaler at the Troubadour

On Saturday, November 20th, Inhaler, an Irish rock band, played their first of two sold out shows at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Fans lined up around the block waiting to get into the show and eagerly filled the venue as soon as the doors opened. San Diego based band Sun Room opened the show, setting the perfect atmosphere for Inhaler. 

The lights went down and the group of four strutted on stage and opened the show with their most popular song and album title track It Won’t Always Be Like This. They immediately had every concertgoer in the palm of their hands. 

Frontman Elijah Hewson, lead guitarist Josh Jenkinson, bassist Robert Keating, and drummer Ryan McMahon have undeniable talent in translating their amazing songs into unforgettable live experiences. The show did not let up; every second was filled with youthful, anthemic lyrics and melodies. The setlist was packed with almost every song from their debut album. They also played two singles not featured on the album, We Have to Move On and Ice Cream Sundae.

The band closed the set with My Honest Face and left the stage littered with roses and rubber ducks thrown by fans. Inhaler is a talented young band and have solidified their space in the music scene with their unforgettable stage presence and debut album. You can catch Inhaler live on the rest of their North American Tour in 2022.
