Every Avenue and Co

The first band I caught was The Audition from Chicago. They were fun but could use that polish that comes from more road time with more audiences.

Plug-in Stereo was not what I expected and they were a little too mellow for this rowdy crowd. And not many people knew the words so the singing was shy. Instead everyone just clapped a lot to work off the energy.

The lead singer for We Are The In Crowd was wearing a shirt for The Maine. Which of course made her 10x hotter and by extension, the band 5x better.

Every Avenue was struggling a bit vocally, and an unusually reserved crowd didn't help. I blame it on a Monday night time slot with a mixed bag of bands.

Still, it's always good to see a show in a cool venue with fun people.

Some Cities

I got to see Downtown Fiction, We The Kings, and Mayday Parade run an audio train of deliciousness on El Corazon.

When artists say on stage that Seattle audiences are the best, loudest and most fun, it's shows like this they are referring to. The fans in this town are the best anywhere.

Even though the drummer was out with a broken arm, the percussion-less set by We The Kings just rocked my freaking socks off.

I'm a lucky boy to call this town home.

Much Needed

There are few things in life more meaningful and rewarding than being able to spend a night with your best friend seeing a show at the best venue in the country.

I'm a lucky boy.
