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…

PHOTOS: Hit The Lights at Chain Reaction, Anaheim, CA

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…

Canadian band Seaway opened up the Pure Noise Records Tour at Chain Reaction.

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…

LIVE REVIEW: Modern Baseball, The Catalyst, Santa Cruz

There’s nothing quite like the energy at a live show, and Saturday night in Santa Cruz was no different. Headlined by the ever-touring pop-punk heavyweights The Wonder Years, the show marked the beginning of the second half of a nationwide tour alongside the UK’s Gnarwolves, local outfit The Story So Far and Philly natives Modern Baseball. Modern Baseball is an incredibly quirky band that has taken American emo and somehow made it accessible to a largely pop-punk fanbase. At a glance, the quartet – formed in 2011 – more or…
