I had the awesome opportunity to catch the Red, White & Black tour at the Chance in Poughkeepsie last week and it was definitely an interesting show! Since the headliner I See Stars is a mix of electronic music and hardcore music the openers were mixed to fit both genres. Like Moths to Flames, Ghost Town and Trace Your Steps were all heavier bands and Razihel was a DJ who’s set felt like a rave with mosh. The crowd was mostly fans of the heavier music but they certainly got into each and every set. There were kids drop kicking one another and throwing front flips during the opening sets and things didn’t slow down after that!
I’ll be covering four awesome tours for make waves in the next few weeks!
