Live Review & Photos: Alter Bridge At REBEL, Toronto, ON

It’s been a long wait for Alter Bridge fans in The 6ix as it’s been over twelve years since their last headline gig here in Toronto. The now shut down Guvernment venue was the last stage to host Alter Bridge during their debut album tour in October of 2004. Now touring for their fifth album, The Last Hero, the four-piece from Orlando, Florida were received with open arms on Wednesday night at Toronto’s latest venue, REBEL nightclub. The impressive 105-minute set opened with the brand new “The Writing on the…

LIVE REVIEW: Yellowcard at The House of Blues, Boston

Any scene kid – former or active – between the ages of 20 and 30 would pee their pants over the thought of getting to see Yellowcard perform live. The band is practically a Warped Tour institution and one of the highlights of the 2000s emo movement. But with the announcement of the band’s final tour and album, tickets to the band’s Farewell tour remained especially coveted last night (November 7) at the House of Blues Boston, where Yellowcard performed to their final Massachusetts crowd at their sold-out show. Casual…

Coming off a three year hiatus, Underoath is back. Following a few festival appearances and the first half of the Rebirth Tour completed, the band took to a sold out crowd in Boston next to the historic Fenway Park. From the moment I walked in the door, the energy was nothing short of palpable. While the band had not been gone for that long, this reunion was about far more than just the name Underoath. After a record and two singles without him, former drummer Aaron Gillespie rejoined the unit…

LIVE REVIEW: Face Everything And Rise Tour – Papa Roach, Rock City Nottingham UK

As you might expect for a Papa Roach show, tickets for tonight sold out way in advance. After 20 years together and eight albums, the Roach have managed to gather just a few fans. They may still be yet to have anything with quite as much success as 2000’s Infest (home to a little song called “Last Resort” you may have heard before), but by no means have they been inconsistent. Each album is still pumped full of hit after hit, and this tour is in support of their latest…

LIVE REVIEW: Real Friends – Tampa, FL

There is no place I feel more at home than in a room filled with hundreds of complete strangers singing along to the songs that have gotten us through the most difficult times in our lives. For those few hours, though, we are not strangers – we are family. Never I have felt more at home than I did while attending a Real Friends show in Tampa, Florida recently. The crazy thing about pop punk shows is no matter how intense the lyrics and music are, you will ultimately feel…

LIVE REVIEW: Secret Someones, Wolf Gang, And Sir Sly Ignite Los Angeles

Nirvana may not be the greatest band of all time, or deserve a spot in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, but you have to admit. It’s pretty impressive when one of your favorite bands covers a legendary song. And does it right. To add a few extras as to why Brooklyn’s new found glory Secret Someones deserve the utmost respect for going balls to the walls, they covered Nirvana’s “Breed” at the El Rey in Los Angeles, Monday night.

LIVE REVIEW: Cymbals Eat Guitars, San Francisco, CA

I’ve seen my fair share of acts perform at the legendary Fillmore located in San Francisco. Granted, most of the past shows I attended consisted of a younger audience than the one I witnessed when I went to this particular concert. It was surprising to not see a fluster of girls running to the stage in hopes to hold the artist’s hand or whatnot.

LIVE REVIEW: My Goodness W/ Adventure Galley Crystal Ballroom Portland, OR

When a radio station sells 94-cent tickets to an “I Saw Them When” show, don’t go with any expectations. But if you do, and My Goodness is on the bill, you’ll have your expectations blown out of the water.

LIVE REVIEW: FYF – Los Angeles

What started out in 2004 as a punk-rock festival at The Echo, 18-year-old music promoter Sean Carlson, created “F Yeah Fest,” which was eventually moved to the L.A. Historic Park and re-named FYF. Last year, Carlson celebrated the 10-year anniversary, and this year has moved the festival to the Los Angeles Sports Arena & Exposition Park at University of Southern California (USC’s) Coliseum. With an attendance of more than 30,000 bass heads and indie kids, the perimeters of USC were heavily guarded this weekend, including the bomb squad, to ensure…

LIVE REVIEW: Suicide Silence in Sayreville, New Jersey

Suicide Silence, who have just released their new album You Can’t Stop Me with vocalist Eddie Hermida, are currently touring with Cannibal Corpse and Wretched. I caught up with their Summer 2014 tour at the famous Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey to watch some face-shredding death metal.
