    1. Gallery : Warped Tour 2015

      Posted on in Gallery

      Warped Tour 2015 has come and gone and all I’ve got are these damn photos. Actually, I had an even better time this year than I did last year. As I get older, most of the bands I grew up listening to are doing or have done 10 year tours for my favorite albums. That leaves me with something vacant in my soul: the need for new music. People will scoff that I don’t know a lot of the bands touring these days, but I love going to Warped Tour to discover amazing new music. Last year I was very new to the Seattle area and attended Warped on my own, but this year I brought my amazing friend Sarah. Sarah is old buddies with Fit For A King and introduced me to their great music.

      On March 19th, The Wonder Years’ long-awaited Greatest Generation Tour sold out Seattle’s El Corazon. The grizzled pop punk vets brought Modern Baseball, Real Friends, Citizen, and Fireworks along to support the groundbreaking 2013 record of the same title. This time around, the Pennsylvania sextet also offered a VIP bundle featuring a signed screenprint, a special lanyard tag, and early entrance for an acoustic performance.

    4. Gallery : The Suppy Nation Tour at El Corazon

      Posted on in Gallery

      El Corazon was packed wall to wall for the Seattle stop of The Suppy Nation Tour. Featured on the line-up was The American Scene, Citizen, Tonight Alive and co-headliners Man Overboard and The Story So Far. With all the bands having a very strong fanbase, the show was quick to sell out the day of the show. Unfortunately, trying to shove dozens of anxious show-goers into a small venue doesn’t always go as planned which forfeits the chance of seeing some of the opening bands. I finally stepped foot into the venue as soon as The American Scene were finishing up. From what I could hear from outside the venue, the band sounded great and the fans seemed to enjoy them.
