Watch Night Riots Perform ‘London’ At The O Music Awards (VIDEO)
Watch Night Riots perform “London” at the O Music Awards.
We’re assuming you did everything possible to stay awake over the course of Wednesday’s 24-hour music-a-palooza, otherwise known as the 2013 O Music Awards. (We’re still coming down from our caffeine high.) And even though California rockers Night Riots hit the O Music Awards’ Los Angeles stage at a whopping 5 a.m., they still looked the very picture of alert and awake as they tore through a fast-charging, moody rendition of “London.” Except, wait. If they were in L.A., that would mean that their set was at 2 a.m. PT. Whatever, that’s still late enough for us!

In case you’re feeling all, “Who are Night Riots again?” it COULD be because you remember them from their PK /The Lost Boys Sessions days; their new Night Riots moniker is a very recent switch. But we’ll bring you up to speed: First, get to know Night Riots’ synth-lined debut track, “Spiders.” Then, it’s time to watch lead singer Travis Hawley whip through a distortion-pop, melodic rendition of “London,” where he’s working the audience so hard, it’s a wonder he doesn’t unironically drop the mic before walking offstage. And, while we’re singing Hawley’s praises, you’ll want to keep your eye the next big thing in rock star swag — no, seriously, Travis has MOVES (and hair) like U2‘s Bono or The Killers‘ Brandon Flowers. You’re welcome.
