LIVE REVIEW: The Sick Tour w/ New Found Glory and Bayside

They say that seeing your favorite band from high school as an adult is a life changing experience. They’re not wrong. When I saw Bayside and New Found Glory on the same ticket, I screamed out loud. It was a pop-punk dream come true. Opening for them was William Ryan Key, that concert goers would recognize and the former frontman of Yellowcard.

LIVE REVIEW: Son Lux and Kimbra

Son Lux and Kimbra hit the road for a quick 10-stop tour mid May, finishing up in California just this weekend. Both acts have recently released new albums, Son Lux’s fifth and Kimbra’s third. Both acts have an eclectic following, so it only made sense to team up for this tour. Son Lux, a trio of musicians who have deemed themselves “genre-less” played a hearty set of tunes that were met with clapping and cheers. It was evident that many concert attendees did not know the group, but based on…

LIVE REVIEW: TesseracT, Plini, Astronoid

If you ever want to see a diverse group of music fans all together, go to a TesseracT concert. From tweens to parents to couples to your stereotypical metal-head, the crowd was as unique as the sound coming off the stage. Astronoid opened up with heavy hitting drums, sick bass lines, and a trio of guitars. This five piece group certainly have a unique sound that they have coined as “Dream Trash”, which after hearing them play, I don’t disagree. Next up was Plini. Plini is a progressive rock artist…

On that day of shock and sadness there was a positive caveat for fans to come together and enjoy music of the same era as Bush passed through the Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub while on tour for their latest album Black and White Rainbows. After opening their 105-minute set with their very first single dating back to 1994, “Everything Zen,” frontman Gavin Rossdale commented…
