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
I had the opportunity to catch Knocked Loose on their headlining spring tour at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey on April 13th. With a stacked line-up featuring The Acacia Strain, Harm’s Way, special guests Incendiary and more, you really can’t go wrong. If you’re unfamiliar with Starland Ballroom, it’s a small but spacious venue, with capacity at 2,000 people and the ability (and of course, reputation) to pack almost every show I’ve attended wall to wall.Read More
The Movielife’s current tour with support from Travis Shettel of Piebald stopped at The End in Nashville on March 24.

The End makes for an intimate performance, and we were excited to see how the night would go as fans trickled into the tiny venue.Read More
Florida natives Set It Off are currently on their Midnight World Tour, with the first leg being North America. They made a stop in Orlando, Florida on March 15 for a sold out show at The Abbey. The venue, while being on the smaller side, was packed with fans as soon as doors opened. Set It Off’s, Maxx Danziger, is originally from Orlando, making this show a very special one for him. Vocalist Cody Carson mentioned how the Orlando date of the tour meant a lot to him as well - many of his family members attended the show! It was no secret that Set It Off had high expectations for Orlando, and they were not disappointed.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
Pop artist Myylo recently performed at The High Watt in Nashville with support from Mokita and Ni/Co on February 15th. Each artist brought something special to the stage and proved, once again, that Music City has more to offer than just country music. Myylo’s been gaining momentum in the local LGBTQIA+ community for some time, and released a new single just that morning which added to the anticipation for him to take the stage.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
On October 28th, in a small venue in downtown Orlando, Florida, Vinyl Theatre took to the stage adorned in flashy astronaut inspired spacesuits, each one unique to the three members. Before the band stormed the stage, an S.O.S. type of audio track played through the venue. The voice in the audio spoke about a space fleet awaiting a signal, keeping with the overall theme of the band’s most recent album: Starcruiser.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
