Music is subjective, and when it hits you is oftentimes related to the circumstances under which you hear it.

Maybe you're driving around when a song comes on the radio, and it makes your ears perk up. Something about it -- a voice, a riff, a beat -- just hits you. You could be down on your luck when you hear a song that you relate to, and it's uplifting. And, even if just for a few minutes, it could pull you out of that funk you've been in.

That, or you might be at a show, slightly intoxicated, running into old friends, making new ones and screaming your head off as one of your favorite bands makes the stage its collective bitch. Yeah, it's all circumstantial.

Saturday night, in the Green Room at Warehouse Live, thelastplaceyoulook celebrated lead vocalist Nava's birthday in grand fashion, as the band performed its first headlining show of 2012.

Having missed their performance at Summer Fest last month, I was even more excited for Saturday and walked in just in time to catch Nothing More's last three songs, including their finale. As "Salem" came to a close, all four band members began pounding on drums, then spinning them around and above their heads a la Cirque du Soleil.

Later, incorporating four songs off their yet-to-be-released third album, TLPYL's set list was diverse, beginning with a reinterpretation of one of their older songs and, by the end of it all, they even performed Florence + The Machine's "Shake It Out." Much like their cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," it was innovative but felt true to the original.

Between "Rip It Out" and "Lie to the Silence," guitarist Derek Young asked the crowd to sing for the man who always sings for them. After a count-off, we all began singing an off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday" as Nava's face warped into a wide-eyed, ear-to-ear smile... A rarity onstage for the man of the evening, whose face is usually contorted into a scowl of sorts as he belts out his heart for everyone else.
