    1. Gallery : Imagine Dragons, Atlas Genius, and Nico Vega at Roseland Ballroom

      Posted on in Gallery

      Back in February, I had the pleasure to see Atlas Genius and Imagine Dragons at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. I interviewed Atlas Genius before the show and got a taste of what to expect. Little did I know that a few months later,


    2. Gallery : Anberlin, Paper Route, and All Get Out at the Showbox Market

      ANBERLIN blew my mind. Stephen Christian’s voice is out of this world and the whole band was so solid. Stephen is so fun to watch because I don’t think I have ever seen someone so happy on stage. He just looks like he loves what he does so much.

      Showbox SoDo was filled with eager fans of all ages to see Prog Rock sensation Coheed and Cambria with support from Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles.

      One of the biggest tours of the year hit Seattle on Wednesday; well sort of. Due to the loss of electricity for countless hours, the Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Hundredth and No Bragging Rights show was put on hold while the problem was seeking a solution.

      The Joy Formiddable opened the day – excuse me, evening. Nine bands means a start time of 3pm. Good thing I didn’t do my usual, sleep in until 1pm routine.


    6. Gallery : Collide With The Sky Tour at El Corazon

      Posted on in Gallery

      The Collide With The Sky tour was one of the most unforgettable shows of 2012. I won’t lie, Pierce The Veil and Sleeping With Sirens are guilty pleasures of mine, but I was actually more excited to watch Hands Like Houses. They’re one of the most underrated bands around right now, but considering the giant venues this tour has been selling out, I’m assuming they’ll get closer to being a household name very soon. The show was sold out and had been for some time, which made me curious as to why a bigger venue wasn’t chosen. Oh well though, everyone fit and the venue was packed full twenty minutes after doors opened.


    7. Gallery : The Alternative Press Tour at El Corazon

      When I arrived at El Corazon for the Alternative Press Tour, I was immediately surprised to learn that it wasn’t yet sold out. I mean, that’s awesome for late-comers who buy their tickets at the door, but I figured those bands could easily fill up the fair-sized theater.


    8. Gallery : Boys Like Girls and The All-American Rejects at Crystal Ballroom

      What is it about Massachusetts natives, Boys Like Girls, that make all teenage girls swoon and ceaselessly shriek with glee? Maybe it’s the sight of a couple of dudes in denim vests and fingerless gloves that’s so appealing.


    9. Gallery : Skip the Foreplay at El Corazon

      I didn’t expect a huge turnout for this show, considering that it fell on the same night as The Thug in Me Is You Tour, however I was pleasantly surprised to see El Corazon’s main floor just about full with excited concert-goers. No locals for the night, but an interesting bill of bands from multiple record labels including Rise and Epitaph.
