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…

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: 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…

LIVE REVIEW: Franz Ferdinand, Seattle, WA

Walking up to the Showbox SoDo in Seattle, a refurbished warehouse in south downtown, you would probably think it was a bit modest for a band of Franz Ferdinand’s status. Although the venue claims to hold 1,500 people, the boxy-one leveled space gives off the vibe of a smaller intimate club, which is enhanced when bands like Franz Ferdinand sell out the venue. And even though you are cramped (more than a usual mosh pit), the upside is that you feel so much closer to the artists and the music….

Show Review: Conor Oberst Boston, MA

As I walk up to the front of The Orpheum, through the sea of people taking pictures of the old fashioned sign that read “Conor Oberst,” I notice the variety of people that I’m seeing shuffle in are quite the mixed bunch. It’s a reminder of how I love shows like this one. It’s as if all the melodies and meanings to the lyrics have created a cocoon around the auditorium, that holds the audience in close to the performer. It’s because Conor Oberst is not just a musician or…

Mayday Parade Show Review: Orlando, FL

House Of Blues Orlando is an amazing venue. It’s the kind of venue where you feel comfortable and, pardon the cliché, at home. House Of Blues is Orlando’s hidden treasure, well enveloped in Downtown Disney; putting the concert-venue where it’s least expected has only increased its notoriety. Florida has a fair amount of music venues and a plethora of bands that are lining up to take the stage for the evening, so there’s always a concert somewhere. At House Of Blues, it’s often a job finding a place to stand,…
