The Black Box Revelation

Yesterday I went to the festival Bruksel Live in the park, and we saw a band that had enough energy to blow the crowd away in a whirlwind of sound!

Here you can find their official site and also on myspace.

The clip below is filmed under the river Schelde in Antwerp, I believe (at least I recognize it). There is a pedestrian tunnel that runs under the river to take you from the East side to the West side of Antwerp.

This clip does not beat the live version of this song. The Black Box Revelation is a great band to watch live on stage… I recommend it!
