Show Review and Photos: Every Time I Die with Oh, Sleeper, Architects and Bring The Me Horizon @ House of Blues
It was October 4th, and it was my first time attending a show at the recently created House of Blues in Boston, and boy was this one hell of a cherry popper. The lineup for the tour ripping through the states consisted of Oh, Sleeper, Architects, Bring Me the Horizon, and Every Time I Die. In case you haven’t heard of these bands, they are the freshest metal acts to have hit the scene, and they most definitely proved it.
My friends and I decided to go see Love Via Dance Machine on a whim at their Harper’s Ferry show on August 11th, and my goodness was that a great spontaneous decision. Unfortunately due to other obligations I wasn’t able to see the rest of the bands playing, but LVDM alone was worth every penny.
The whole act behind their set is that they’re pop-punk rockers from the future, and I believe it. Those dudes showed off talent far beyond the 20 (at most) years they’ve got under their belts, and I’m convinced the only way any band could be that tight live is by having 100 or so years of tour experience, and then actually traveling back in time to deliver us with the catchiest, danciest, most addicting songs I’ve ever heard.
Hey Everyone! Nick Grieco here, delivering to you my first Boston show review for PlaygroundBoston.com! I’m excited to be able to share my accounts of the best and brightest musicians in the ever-growing Boston music scene.
The first show I had the pleasure of reviewing is the Await Rescue EP release that took place at the Middle East Upstairs on August 7th. Upon walking in I was handed an Await Rescue Download card, containing the code to access the site where I could download their entire EP, which I promptly did when I came home. I just have to say that the convenience of this innovation in music distribution is something I feel all bands should be taking advantage of, so major props to Await Rescue for hopping on this wagon.
