American Teeth at the Fonda Theater – Live Review
American Teeth, The Fonda Theater, October 14, 2021
After a standout show opening the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, American Teeth would soon find themselves added on for a few dates supporting The Maine. One of the performances would be at the historic Fonda Theater in the heart of Hollywood, and the packed house ready to see The Maine were very receptive to the edgy pop punk American Teeth anthems. There were quite a few in the crowd who already were familiar with American Teeth, but it was obvious the band was winning over newer converts with their super infectious tunes as well.
Elijah Noll is the mastermind behind American Teeth – a massively talented, brilliantly charismatic performer whose imagination and spirited resourcefulness makes his music so vibrant and unique. Gaining a lot of traction during the pandemic due to his dynamic singles and memorable videos, Elijah Noll has finally been able to deliver the goods in a live setting – and for his many fans in the City of Angels, the wait was well worth it and paid off tenfold. Selections such as One Of Those Days and Fix You are potential radio hits and were incredible when delivered by American Teeth within a live setting.
One absolute highlight of the show was when American Teeth burst into the wickedly wonderful Barred Out, and was joined onstage by none other than Cameron Walker-Wright of Twin XL – the co-vocalist and co-writer of this very amazing tune! The pair sent that song into the stratosphere – it would be great to see a Twin XL/American Teeth tour just so they could perform Barred Out together every single night.
Closing out with the rapturous refrains of 2Late, American Teeth definitely left a lasting impression with an audience who clearly wanted to revisit these songs in the future. American Teeth’s debut album We Should Be Having Fun will be released October 29th via Fearless Records. Be sure to check out American Teeth live the next time they arrive in town to dazzle your senses with these truly inspiring live shows!
