It is always good when an opening band garners a standing ovation. It's that tell-tale sign that you are in for one hell of show. On Friday, Welsh indie rockers, the Joy Formidable, forced the crowd into a standing ovation, thanks to the band's killer performance at the annual How the Edge Stole Christmas concert. The audience was in a state of pure bliss the entire eventing, rocking out to a lineup consisting of local radio station 102.1 The Edge's most popular bands. From the pit of energy created by Los Angeles’ Grouplove to one of the most musically emotional endings by the Silversun Pickups this year was quiet possible the best Edge show, EVER!
