When The Acacia Strain announced the Impact Crater Tour we instantly knew that it would not be one to miss. I’ve been seeing and photographing The Acacia Strain shows for around 15 years now, and this was easily the smallest venue I’ve seen them in and certainly the hottest show.Read More
Superorganism brought the party to Port City Music Hall as their “World Wide Trip Cont…” tour neared its end. Starting at Coachella and ending in Boston, the group had been on the road for the better part of a month. With support from Simpson, both artists owned the stage and captivated the crowd.Read More
When Birds in Row and Listener announced that they would be touring together, I immediately knew it would be a night that could not be missed.

La Dispute rolled into Boston, MA with Gouge Away and Slow Mass on a cool Friday evening. Playing at the Royale, a pretty swanky venue, it was nice to see this place again. I've been there once before when I was on tour with The Wonder Years and Jetty Bones last year.Read More
Forever Came Calling brought their acoustic tour to The End in Nashville, TN earlier this month on April 6th. For their show in Music City, a small crowd turned out to support the show. It’s always refreshing to hear stripped down versions of otherwise highly energetic songs, so this stacked lineup provided a night of laid back entertainment.Read More
Mat Kerekes brought his headlining tour through San Francisco at Bottom of the Hill on March 22nd with Jacob Sigman and Jetty Bones. We were lucky to be in town to check it out. It was great to see a show at a venue with such a rich history, as Bottom Of The Hill Bottom Of The Hill, as well as SFO’s 924 Gilman Street, serve as a West Coast version of NYC’s CBGB. Bottom Of The Hill has seen the early stages of majorly successful artists including Blink 182, The Flaming Lips, The White Stripes, and Beastie Boys, just to name a new.Read More
Calpurnia performed to a sold out crowd at Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, TN earlier this month on March 2nd. While the band had originally been scheduled to play in Nashville on January 8th, the show had to be postponed due to vocalist / guitarist Finn Wolfhard becoming ill.
With that being said, the crowd was eager to see the show and there was a long line of fans outside the venue braving the cold in order to get a prime spot in this GA venue.
Daughters triumphant return is something that has had us very excited for quite some time. The group’s latest album, You Won’t Get What You Want, has been in heavy rotation and turned this tour into one of our most anticipated shows of the year so far. After Blanck Mass had to drop off of the tour before it started, Daughters added Hide and Wolf Eyes to warm up the crowd for the night.Read More

The Basement is, quite literally, a basement. Not to be confused with it’s relative, The Basement East, The Basement boasts a mere 100-ish capacity, and a close quarters feel.
Kicking off their set with a poll to figure out if the crowd thought that acoustic guitars or synthesizers were better, Cloudmouth’s vocalist / guitarist Kyle Numann had the audience laughing with jovial stage banter between band mates. This two band bill mixed genres from distant eras, yet common ground could be found in the sheer experimentalism present with each artist.Read More
Let’s face it, anniversary tours have become commonplace over the last few years, cashing in on the idea of nostalgia. Rarely do you get two bands touring together on anniversaries of albums, and it’s even more rare that the albums were instrumental in progressing their genres. After The Burial and The Acacia Strain teamed up for the Rareform Across The Continent tour and we knew as soon as it was announced that it wouldn’t be one to miss. Check out our thoughts on the tour, which also included Make Them Suffer and Erra, after the jump.Read More

It’s not often that you come across a two band bill that also features an established band making their triumphant return to the stage as an active artist — we’re living the dream!

The Get Up Kids wound down their recent tour with a stop in Nashville, TN. With support from Ageist and Racquet Club, The Get Up Kids drew a large crowd which was impressive because Smashing Pumpkins were performing in Nashville on the same night. Mercy Lounge is certainly a small venue for an established band to play, making the show an intimate experience for everyone there as it was an up close and personal performance.Read More

Ascend Amphitheater, Nashville's go-to spring and summer concert spot, is perfect for a relaxing night of fresh air, live music, and a beautiful view. Behind the stage, you can catch a glimpse of Nashville's modest skyline. In the opposite direction, you have the glowing lights of the Pedestrian Bridge, a place where many gather to watch concerts from afar for free. Vance Joy performed at Ascend on May 10 with direct support from the up and coming group Lovelytheband while on his Nation of Two World Tour.Read More
The Wonder Years are currently on tour in support of their latest album, Sister Cities, with support from Tigers Jaw, Tiny Moving Parts, and Worriers. We caught their show at Cannery Ballroom, which has become the home for many of The Wonder Years recent performances in Music City.Read More
