Taking Philadelphia by storm, Half Alive, stylized as half•alive, turned the Theatre of Living Arts into a dance party on Saturday night. The band, made up of singer and guitarist Josh Taylor, drummer Brett Kramer, and bassist J Tyler Johnson, filled the venue with fluorescent lights and electronic dance-pop. What sets this band aside is their performances and they showcased just that. JA Collective, a dance duo consisting of...

Earlier this month Stand Atlantic and The Faim set off on a co-headline tour of the US and on the 28th they made a stop at the ONCE Ballroom in Somerville, Ma. The show was opened by American rock band Hold Close and English pop punk band WSTR. Both bands fit in perfectly with the vibe of the show and got the crowd amped for the main acts.

The ONCE ballroom may be a smaller venue but both Stand Atlantic and The Faim did a great...

"It's like when you go and see a really great band live for the first time, you know? And nobody's saying it, but everyone's thinking it: we have something to believe in again.” - Unknown

Our Friday the 13th was complete after hearing the new album one of our all time favorites, Counterfeit. If you don't already know- Counterfeit. is a punk rock band from London, fronted by rocker and actor Jamie Campbell Bower. They recently w...

Bands are always looking for new ways to give back to their fans. Whether it’s merch giveaways, listening parties, or just meeting them. Well, Grayscale went over the top and did all of this, and then some. To celebrate the release of their new album, Nella Vita, that comes out on September 6th the band traveled across the country and put together 5 pop up events in 5 cities. Luckily for me, Boston was...

August 11, 2019 marked the annual iMatter Festival held in hopes to spread meaning and purpose to generations at the Chemung County Fairgrounds in Horseheads, NY. Compared to last years lineup, this year featured more heavier bands like Left Behind, Harms Way, and fan-favorites in Wage War. 

Headlining this year's festival was Beartooth, a beloved rock band headed by Caleb Shomo. Close Quarters kicked off the festival...

I have to say, watching Chase Atlantic grow from doing their first US tour before their first album release to selling out venues on a headlining tour after their sophomore album dropped has been incredible. The first time I saw those guys onstage, I was in awe of their stage presence and how it demanded attention from the crowd. After two years, none of that has changed. The Paradise Rock Club was packed wall to wall with exc...

Concert-goers were all relieved when Rockstar’s Disrupt Festival announced all of the bands were going to be playing the main stage that blistering hot, sunny, and humid afternoon. Under the shady pavilion of the nearly 20,000 capacity amphitheater, those who were there early gathered in the pit for the first acts to go on. 

The beginning crowd was so small that everyone who wanted one had a barricade spot. Seeing as it was the...

The 1975 are nearing the end of their North American leg of their 2019 tour. They stopped by Boston on Thursday to a sold out show at the Agganis Arena, marking the biggest headlining show the band has ever played in Boston. The show was a blast from start to finish with The 1975’s close friend No Rome opening to get the crowd ready. No Rome has a very similar sound to the English pop rock band that they fit the vibe perfectly...

Last week, we attended the Loner tour in Boston, MA. It was a sold out show and, as you can imagine, it was packed wall to wall with fans excited to see SAINT PHNX and Yungblud.

Typically, Yungblud meets the first 50 fans inside before the show begins, but for some reason today was different. He came outside and went down the line for a bit meeting fans. Once inside, SAINT PHNX started the show and the crowd went nuts for them....

On Wednesday, we attended the Suspending Gravity tour featuring Marianas Trench, New Dialogue, and DJ George Thoms. It was a sold out show at a new venue, so we didn’t know what to expect.

We got there a little into DJ George Thoms’ set and it was PACKED. Even upstairs was lined with parents taking advantage of the minimal seating. Having a DJ as the opener was a surprising choice by Marianas Trench, but his set of emo remixes...
