A night of diving into the crowd, jumping on fans backs and expressing indignation towards Donald Trump don’t begin to describe the crazy acts at Silverstein’s headlining show at Upstate Concert Hall last Monday.
Before the year ends there’s 15 songs you need to check out if you haven’t heard them before so you start off the new year with some great new music! Some songs are probably a bit more well known than others but give everything a chance, there’s something for everyone! Check it out below:
I had the chance to sit down with Emarosa before their show at Starland Ballroom, as they got there Zombie make up done, and talk about everything from how this tour as been to the new record Versus and even into future music and sides of Emarosa that haven’t been explored too much yet! See what the guys had to say and be sure to pick up Versus and keep an eye out for what’s coming next!
When the tour was first announced it seemed a bit strange, Yellowcard and Memphis May Fire touring together; the two are quiet different as far as genre and fanbases go. Both do have great stage presence and put on fantastic sets but still, that does not usually make a tour package. The opener, Emarosa, could fit on a tour package with either band sound wise and certainly holds their own with stage presence and the ability to command a stage and crowd. When the tour came to Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, NJ on Halloween it became clear to fans of all three groups that the tour package was certainly a fantastic idea and a very successful show.
I had the amazing opportunity to catch the Devil’s Dance Tour on it’s final night at Irving Plaza Wednesday night headlined by Chiodos. They were supported by Emarosa, Hands Like Houses, Our Last Night, and ’68. I’d been fortunate enough to have been at the Philly date at the beginning of the tour so I knew it was going to be a fantastic show. The New York City date exceeded my expectations and blew what I remembered of the Philly date away. This was due to the addition of Hands Like Houses midway through the tour as well as the exponential growth of Bradley Walden, frontman for Emarosa. All five groups engaged the crowd and made the night one to remember.
