It was the craziest crowd I’d seen in a really long time. The passion of the fans mixed with the energy and the thumping background music they had, it was intense and I was glad I wasn’t in the crowd because I would’ve been terrified
The sound was flawless and even with everyone singing along, you could make out all the little details of the song. Seeing it live made me appreciate it even more, and I never wanted their set to end
Anyone singing along around me was on the verge of tears, and rightfully so. This band was making us feel something, and regardless of anything outside of the venue, we were all feeling it together.
When it was time for em to get on stage, the Suicidal Tendencies backdrop was raised, the drum kit was ready, and the crowd was chanting “S-T, S-T” with some sillier members of the crowd adding “D” for a joke. Everyone knew this was the last band of the whole thing, the final hoorah, the big one everyone’d been waiting for
Silverstein was a band that I basically grew up with. I remember having their poster on my wall in seventh grade, and listening to them and Hawthorne Heights in my bedroom, pretending I was at a show. I purposely didn’t listen to any of their more recent stuff because I wanted to hear it live first.
I wasn’t there for ambience I was there for Lions Lions. The Boston based ‘post hardcore’ band who has been getting a whole lot of attention in the local scene lately and who’s album “To Carve Our Names” has been on repeat with me for awhile.
We need those security guards to push us of the ledges and throw the freaks out the side doors. WE NEED THE SITE LINE OF THE SOUND BOARD AREA!!
