Americana-tinged modern rockers The Head And The Heart have always been keen on forging strong connections and creating lasting memories with their audience. At The Mann Center last week, the band did this through not only by a stirring performance of music from their latest album Every Shade Of Blue — as well as back catalog favorites — but by breaking down the barriers between performer and audience as much as a band of their scale can.

Lead singer Jonathan Russell dove offstage in the first few songs of the night, singing from a wireless mic, reaching to the outstretched hands of the crowd at the Skyline Stage and getting photos with members of the crowd. Later, they brought their tourmates The Revivalists onstage — another Americana-rooted modern rock band that thrives on community — for a rousing performance of “Lost In My Mind” punctuated by guitarist Matt Gervais lifting a boom mic and holding it aloft, asking the crowd to sing into it at the top of their lungs.

See photos from the show below, including Philadelphia-based opener Julia Pratt who got the night started with a solo electric performance.
