Last week (Thursday, November 8) the GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum alt-rock band, Plain White T’s performed at the Sunset Strip venue, The Roxy Theatre. The group has been on the road in support of their newest studio album, “Parallel Universe,” out now via Fearless Records.
“Parallel Universe” marks the band’s 13 year return on Fearless Records following their independent 2015 release “American Nights.” The album displays the band’s new shift in sound as they have evolved into more ethereal electronic pop strengthened by lush guitar tones and synth transmissions.

Plain White T’s were formed in Lombard, Illinois in 1997 by high school friends Tom Higgenson, Dave Tirio and Ken Fletcher. They were joined a short time later by Steve Mast. They are best known in the U.S. for the number-one hit song “Hey There Delilah“, as well as “1234“ and “Rhythm of Love.”
Throughout Plain White T’s set, the quintet were super upbeat and truly filled the Roxy with such positive energy. Their front-man, Tom Higgenson continued to thank the crowd for being there and remarked at how many familiar faces there were in the audience; friends, family and colleagues in the music biz. They all were engaging with the fans and especially the front few rows of concert-goers who received plenty of high-fives and personal eye-contact with the group.
They played the bulk of their new album, “Parallel Universe” along with fan favorites “The Giving Tree,” “Rhythm of Love,” “(Hate) I Really Don’t Like You” and of course “Hey There Delilah.”
