  • Full Circle Tour @ Best Buy Theater

    Of Mice & Men

    I’m actually going to deviate from the script a tad bit and tell you a story. We’ll get back to the conventional concert story-teller rhetoric in a minute. During the intermission before Of Mice & Men were due to play, I walked out and met a young fan who was sitting near the entrance by…

  • The Maine @ Cannery Ballroom

    The Maine

    This past Tuesday, May 12th, The Maine played Nashville, TN with support from The Technicolors, Knuckle Puck, and Real Friends. This lineup had me a bit skeptical, featuring two pop punk bands which seem vastly different from both The Maine and The Technicolors. However, this lineup proved to flow very smoothly and ended up being…

  • Atreyu @ Starland Ballroom

    Atreyu

    I remember the first time I listened to Atreyu’s first album, The Curse. It was one of my first times being exposed to that metalcore sound where there was a clean vocalist who complemented unclean vocals. I was hooked straight from “Bleeding Mascara” and it’s kept my attention through their subsequent releases as well. When…

    The fifth annual Carolina Rebellion festival took place in Concord, North Carolina on May 2nd and 3rd. This was my first time attending the festival and it was more than I ever expected.

  • Stone Temple Pilots @ Irving Plaza

    Like many people, I was both intrigued and skeptical of the line-up change in Stone Temple Pilots. From here, you have two influences clashing. I was used to the classic guitar parts of “Wicked Garden” and “Vasoline”, but Chester Bennington‘s vocals has imprints all over my youth from Linkin Park. Would Bennington’s voice translate well…

  • Pianos Become the Teeth / Loma Prieta / Gates @ First Unitarian Church

    pianos become the teeth live 2015 2

    It’s been too long of a time coming, but Pianos Become the Teeth have finally embarked on their first ever proper headlining tour in the US. Fresh off the release of last year’s seminal powerhouse Keep You, Pianos were admittedly cautious about kicking off their own headliner; a tale of caution unneeded, as the band…

    A few months ago, Enter Shikari announced their next worldwide tour, on which they were to promote their great new record The Mindsweep. The lineup of the North American leg ended up being one of the best tour packages in a long time. At the show at the TLA in Philadelphia, support came from Stray From The Path, A Lot…
