PHOTOS: We Came As Romans at Kohl Fest, Reading, PA

I recently attended the 2017 Kohl Fest in Reading Pennsylvania, where I caught headliners We Came As Romans— and after a long day in the hot sun they were the perfect band to end the night. WCAR put on a explosive performance, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from them. Dave Stephens, one of their two vocalist kept the energy up in the room and never stopped moving on stage. At one point during their performance, Kyle Pavone, their second vocalist reached out into the sea of people to grab a Go…

Live Review & Photos: The Shelters At The Starline, Oakland, CA

The weather and traffic battled it out for which would be worse last Thursday evening during my drive to Oakland, CA. The traffic won. Luckily I gave myself enough time to arrive, grab a bite to eat, and catch the start of the show. The Starline Social Club is a historic building dating back to 1893. Once a ballroom, it now houses a restaurant and bar downstairs, and an ample sized room upstairs. Complete with original wood floors, booth seating, another bar, and tin ceiling tiles, the vintage room was a…

LIVE REVIEW & PHOTOS: Assuming We Survive, Colorado Springs, CO

“I once dropped off my daughter at school in our tour bus, and she was embarrassed!” lead singer of Assuming We Survive, Adrian Estrella told my dad and I, to which my father responded with, “Well of course, dads are supposed to embarrass their kids!” It seems a little cheesy and awkward to have your parent hanging out with you when you’re trying to be cool around the lead singer of your favorite band, but that’s where I was on Sunday night.

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…

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…

PHOTOS: Being As An Ocean, Anaheim, CA

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…

Photos: Underoath, Boston, MA

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…
