Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties performed at The Basement East with support from Pronoun and Diva Sweetly earlier this month.

Palaye Royale Play To A Sold Out Crowd in Orlando

The Abbey in Downtown Orlando, Florida is a well-known venue with the locals and music enthusiasts alike. The small building gets frequented by bands fairly often but generally hosts small crowds. This was definitely not the case on May 22nd when Palaye Roayle played to a sold-out venue. The trio, consisting of Remington Leith (vocals), Sebastian Danzig (guitar), and Emerson Barrett (drums), have always drawn a dedicated fan base to each show whether they’re support for a headlining act, playing a side stage at warped tour, or in this case, at The Abbey.

Acme Feed & Seed is a popular spot in Nashville for tourists & locals to party while downtown. Having served as a storefront starting in the late 1800’s, Acme is now well known as a multilevel venue with multiple bars and event spaces.

A modest stage faced rows and rows of packed seating, with audience members actively waiting for the show to start.
