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.

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.

Cloudmouth + Basic Printer | The Basement | Nashville, TN

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.
