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…

The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Use Your Shows To Build Relationships

Our touring experiences have definitely changed our outlook on playing shows. Instead of just focusing on the performance, we have learned to treat the entire night as a networking event. From the time we arrive for load-in until we close the doors of the van to leave, we look for every opportunity to build relationships with everyone at the show. There are a lot of bands who choose to hang out in their vans or hang out backstage before they go on stage, but those bands miss out on a…

My First Time: Eidola

The first time I went to see a concert was in November of 2006. I had seen my friends play at local venues, but never anything more than 20 people in a garage. I grew up in a small town called Payson, Utah, which is about an hour south of Salt Lake City. Bands generally only stop in Salt Lake City, if they stop in Utah at all, so this was the first time I had the money for a ticket and the means to get to the venue. I was going to…

SHOW REVIEW: Architects, Stray From The Path, Make Them Suffer

In a world with deeply heated political events and a host of other issues, music has become an outlet for many. Casual listeners and diehard fans alike find their purpose at concerts. From the front row mosher to the headlining vocalist, having an outlet for feelings has never been more poignant. This holds especially true for Brighton, England’s Architects. The group, already well-informed and against injustice, experienced a major shift that could turn a lesser band upside down. Architects – and the metal community as a whole – felt a…
