The show opened with Phoenix indie-rocker Sydney Sprague. Opening up with "I refuse to die" they got the crowd warmed up, with each song the crowd grew inside. They played other songs like "steve" off their recent release "maybe I will see you at the end of the world" which dropped February 26th via rude records. Even getting the crowd excited with a cover of Blink-182's "I Miss You" where they had a guest Dan of Oso Oso join them on stage to sing.
After a brief set change, Long Beach, NY rock band Oso Oso took the stage. Their sound is amazing and you can feel the empathy behind the lyrics. The crowd sang along to every word with smiles on their faces. Clearly enjoying every moment of their performance. Once they wrapped up the set the crowd joined in to sing along with the music playing over the house speakers, even getting almost everyone to sing along to the Goo Goo Dolls ”Iris”
Then it was time for Jersey folk-punk band The Front Bottoms. This was my first time seeing The Front Bottoms and I was not disappointed. They played songs like Flashlight and others off their most recent release “In Sickness & In Flames” which came out last year. They packed the venue, almost selling out the show. You could see everyone having the time of their lives singing along to every word that night. Although this was one of the last tour dates, I highly recommend attending a show the next time they tour you won’t regret it.
