LIVE/PHOTO REVIEW: Charming Liars, Sacramento, CA

Sacramento has a new-ish venue called Ace of Spades, just on the outskirts of the downtown, state capital. Set among both residential and commercial buildings, this club was the site of the L.A. band Charming Liars‘ support set to Night Riots and veteran act Blaqk Audio last Saturday night. As I stood in line for will call I overheard many show-goers asking each other if they knew of the opening band, Charming Liars. Answers came as shrugs in the negative. After the band took to the stage, though, much of…

Ohio based band Hit The Lights headlined the Pure Noise Records Tour at Chain Reaction. The second Nick jumped on stage he couldn’t stop moving! The energy levels he had were incredible. It’s such a nice change to see a vocalist really get into the live show and give it his all to fans that come out to the show.   Their set list consisted of new and old songs from albums they’ve put out in the past 10 years. I know I appreciated hearing old songs that they don’t normally play…

They opened up their…

Being As An Ocean stopped at Chain Reaction for the last date of their headlining tour that SOLD OUT! The second that Joel stepped on stage to get his mic set up, fans roared with excitement & started stage diving immediately. Who says you need music to have a good time at a show? (It helps sometimes, haha) They opened up with Little Richie (How can we know Love when we were never shown it?) Joel gave the crowd a speech about how we are all humans & every single one of us…

WATCH: Five Finger Death Punch Members Throw Temper Tantrum On Stage, Apologize Through Teasing New Single

If you were watching Five Finger Death Punch live in Memphis, Tennessee last night, you may have noticed something a bit off. Namely, that the entire band, save for frontman Ivan Moody, walked off stage mid-show. Moody seems to be about as confused as the rest of us were. However, six songs in to the performance, the concert came to a halt from what the crowd believed was the breakup of the band. But it would not be so. The band issued a statement, with comments from multiple members, to address the…
