2019 Concerts So Far

2019 has been my biggest concert year yet and that is saying a lot! Will be adding to this as more continue to pop up. Festivals: Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Sad Summer Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Riot Fest.
Much Love

Microwave and Four Years Strong - Little acoustic show. Microwave are one of my favorite bands and as usual they did not disappoint
2Bring Me The Horizon
Suicide Season

Bring me the horizon, Thrice and Fever 333 - Fever were okay live, Thrice played really well but BMTH fans are just NOT their audience so it was a little awkward. BMTH was one of the most fun performances I have ever seen. This show was just before he blew out his throat again, so it was amazing hearing the deathcore medley of all the old songs. They are quite the performers and I can see why they have moved into playing festivals.
3The Band CAMINO

The Band CAMINO - Amazing how quickly this band has gone from small venues to selling out mid sized ones and being billed at major music festivals. They sounded beautiful and spot on live. Great performance.

Pinegrove and Another Michael - The opener Another Michael had plenty of charm and was very well paired with Pinegrove and warrants a listen for those interested! Pinegrove was incredible though and I ended up finding some new favorites from their backlog of music. Skylight was an AOTY for me, so this high energy performance was magical.
Knife Man

AJJ - A small acoustic performance of just their frontman at a bar. It was a great light hearted show and was also the first time going to a concert with my gf.
6Better Oblivion Community Center
Better Oblivion Community Center

Better Oblivion Community Center, Lala Lala and Christian Lee Hutson - In my opinion the openers were nothing very noteworthy, but Christian was a nice acoustic performance. Conor and Phoebe were AMAZING. I went to this show back to back nights. Hearing them switch off performing eachothers music and ripping through their entire new album together was perfect. Conor was everything I have always expected his live performance to be and I became a huge Phoebe fan especially after hearing her destroy Easy, Lucky, Free
7Big Wild

Big Wild and Robotaki - My gf is very into EDM and there are now going to be more random shows like this popping up in my life. Big Wild was a very cool performance though!
8La Dispute

La Dispute - I hate that I didn't love this performance more. I have a feeling that the over sized venue for the size of the crowd that came out had a lot to do with this one, but this just wasn't the same as the times I have seen them open for other bands before. As always, the singer had some wild energy and they had a really cool stage setup with a lit background and a carpet on the ground.

Mewithoutyou and The Appleseed Cast - The Appleseed Cast's new music was extremely impressive and I am very excited for their new album to come out. Mewithoutyou was amazing as expected. I was front row with a group of people and we all quickly realized that we had each came to the show alone and it was nice to be with a random group of people and bond over the music. Still bummed they didn't play Rainbow Signs as this was a bonus show for the tour that was planned last second, but it was great to finally get the chance to hear them.
10The Mountain Goats
In League With Dragons

The Mountain Goats - This has been a favorite band of mine since early college and having a sold out venue singing the songs from the top of their lungs was a religious experience. The show opened with him singing No Children from the balcony above the crowd and it was entrancing.
Morbid Stuff

PUP - This was my third time getting to see PUP live and I was excited to hear some of their new songs. New songs did not disappoint and closing on Scorpion Hill was a phenomenal choice for the band just because how epic the song is. I had a delayed flight and unfortunately had to show up to the show late.
12Hot Mulligan

Hot Mulligan and Belmont - I did not find Belmont to be very exciting, but they play run of the mill pop-punk that I probably should give more credit to. Hot Mulligan is a very high energy, youthful, pop-punk group that has quickly became my favorite in the newer scene. Their performance was able to match their album performance for the most part.
