Heartstop, a five-piece Los Angeles-based alternative rock band, performed an array of tunes from their current EP, Moments, to a packed crowd at the Knitting Factory on May 26. This young band proved that age is irrelevant when rocking the crowd. Their 30-minute set lent itself to strong guitar riffs, meaningful lyrics and cohesiveness from a band with chops that belie their age.
