REVIEWS: Cute are outshone; CUTE IS WHAT WE AIM FOR Carling Academy 2.
FANS of pop-punk newbies Cute Is What We Aim For were willing to trade body parts for a ticket, so everyone inside felt lucky to be there.
Dave Melillo introduced himself to an Academy bursting with anticipation.
Sam's Song and Knights of the Island Counter were moving soft rock numbers and Melilo proved he was not only a nice guy on stage by hanging out with fans afterwards.
The hysteria that greeted Hit The Lights was immense. Pitch-perfect vocalist Colin Ross displayed an air of confidence with which the headliners just could not compete.
Cute were disappointing by comparison.
You had to give them credit for playing when Shaant was clearly in a lot of pain they cancelled their two previous shows due to the singer's throat problems.
Despite an audience in awe of their super-sweet songs. Cute missed the target.
It's time for Hit the Lights to take centre stage.
