Frank Iero Plays Hometown Show At Asbury Lanes

Recently, I had the opportunity to review Frank Iero and the Future Violents’ newest record, Barriers.

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.

Lucero Perform Unplugged At Acme

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. As we’d never been to a show there before, I wasn’t sure what to expect! Once we got there, I realized just how intimate of a show this would be. A modest stage faced rows and rows of packed seating, with audience members actively waiting for the show to start. Lucero performed as part of an unplugged series on April 29th, with direct support from East Tennessee native Joey Kneiser.

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.
