Cincinnati's Walk the Moon brought their Talking Is Hard tour to New York City for two consecutive nights, and had some help from Australian indie rockers the Griswolds.

With painted faces and bright smiles, fans packed into Terminal 5 on the west side of Manhattan for a night of passionate and energetic rock. Walk the Moon kicked off their set with the new track “Different Colors” from their latest album Talking Is Hard and went on to perform other fresh tracks like “Down in the Dumps,” “Shiver, Shiver,” “Aquaman” and “Shut Up and Dance.”

Walk the Moon are upbeat and entertaining; it’s easy to see why their young fans gravitate toward them. A special moment of the night included “Different Colors” being played a second time and filmed for the track's music video. They also performed their rendition of “All the Things That I’ve Done” by the Killers and ended their set with “Anna Sun” off of their 2012 self-titled disc.

The Griswolds kicked off the night with an enthusiastic performance, setting the bar very high for the headliners. The band is touring in support of their latest full length album, Be Impressive. They will continue on the road as they finish up their trek with Walk the Moon, and then will head over to Europe. In June, they return to the states and will make their way back to New York City for a gig at Bower Ballroom in mid-June.
