’68 is Rock and Roll
Words/Visuals: Joe Naranjo
Last week I had the pleasure of shooting ’68 when their tour made a stop in Chicago.
It’s really hard to put into words the amount of intensity that this duo brings to the stage, so I’ll try my best. ’68 is Rock and Roll.
The first time I heard/saw them, was about 3 years ago when the supported Every Time I Die. Prior to that, they were completely off my radar. It’s rare to be blown away by an opener, especially when they outperform the headliner. No, I’m not knocking ETID…they’re always a sight to see live, and never disappoint.
How is it possible for two people to create such an immense wall of sound? I understand that liberties can be taken when recording an album, but to produce that same sound live is pretty impressive. If you’ve never heard ’68 before, they’re definitely a band to keep an eye on. In short, rock is not dead.
