"A Night With Patience Worth"

by Click




Fronted by lead singer Toryn, with guitarist Ryan, Orion on drums and Cesar on bass, Patience Worth is something out-of-this-world. From the onset of the night the band's presence in the venue on the Sunset Strip was noticeable as they happily interacted with friends and fans alike.

Having arrived to late too catch the first two bands (The Afternoon Tears and The Faded), I wasn't to eager to stick it out inside to listen to whichever band it was that happened to take the stage between The Faded and The Dreaming. So I decided to hang around outside the venue with the band, talk with them and a few others. Something to take note of with Patience Worth is their approachable personalities: You wont find anything but some of the most friendly, sweetest guys the L.A. music scene has to offer.

I dropped back inside to catch The Dreaming's performance, then I headed upstairs to grab some pre-show photos of Patience Worth. Then it was time for them to take the stage so I took my coveted spot at the top of the stairs to catch some shots. The anxiety of the audience could be felt from even where I was standing. The lights started twitching and then Patience Worth assaulted the audience with their unique blend of modern rock. In seeing these guys live for the second time I saw more than I had the previous time; they are one of those bands you can go see every time they perform live and never tire of them.

The first few songs were full of this intense energy that blew me away. The band's songs are very well put together, the lyrics are intricately deep and heartfelt. The way lead singer Toryn interacted with the audience was great: He made them feel like they were actually a part of the performance instead of just there watching the show, which is something else that is not seen that often-even from the night's headlining act Professional Murder Music, which just seemed to be up there performing like they were doing the audience a favor.

Partway through the set Patience Worth took it down a few notches and slowed the music down to some lovely, almost ballad-type songs, showing off even more versatility and talent among the band members. It also gave Toryn the chance to present the audience with the strength and substance his voice possesses. Pretty much anyone can sing a moderately fast rock song, but when it comes to the punch it takes a strong voice like Toryn's to do those slower songs and do them well.

Drummer Orion again proved himself to be the most entertaining drummer of the night and the most talented. His technique is very straightforward and solid, and his playing comes across as being second nature to him, as though he was born with sticks in his hands. The flashiness of his style proves even more how skilled he is on drums: While some use flash to cover up a lack of technique, drummers like Orion use it to provide a more entertaining show for their audience and show how they can hold their own on stage. Being tucked behind such a large kit, drummers usually have to work a bit harder than the others to gain eyes and recognition.

Closing out the set, they picked it up once more with the intense energy this band has become known for. Having been out on the L.A. music scene for nearly two years now, I wish I had caught onto them much sooner. They also included a very interesting and well-done cover of Bush's "Machine Head," a song I had not heard anyone cover up until then.
