Blink-182, Live at The Wiltern

November 19th, 2013
Comments Off

Playing the sixth of their seven sold-out 10-year anniversary shows, Blink-182 played to an excited, sold-out crowd at The Wiltern Theater. Entering the stage to a huge ovation, the band wasted no time in getting into what was perhaps their most well-received and mature LP, known as the Untitled album.

Each member had a time to shine, with maybe Travis Barker the brightest of lights; he sat atop Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge at his drumkit, which he played (as is expected), with finesse throughout. Following the conclusion of the Untitled album set, the band re-emerged for a five-song encore, comprised of some of their older numbers. Though well received by the audience, those in the audience actually paying attention to the quality of the sound would have noticed that DeLonge’s voice seemed to have lost its punch in the set break.

Camping had started the night before, the dedication and excitement surrounding Denver’s very first Riot Fest was clear. Driving toward the action, locals could be seen making the best out of the influx of people by charging the less expensive price of $10 for a spot further away from the festival.

Riot Fest Chicago: Day Two

September 26th, 2013
Comments Off

Day Two of Riot Fest Chicago: the attendance seemed greater and the temperatures steeped lower for the Windy City. With gates opening earlier, lines of fans were tightly knit, ready to see bands who were locked into sets as early as eleven thirty. For those who still had to wait for their set selection, they took to see what had become of the foot-long block of butter from Day One of the festival. Behold, sculpted beautifully is a butter sculpture of John Stamos during his Full House days. Surely, the iconic mullet never look so delicious and strangely appetizing until now. Across the way, the young Florida native band Surfer Blood took to the Root Stage. Their mellow surf-rock vibe drew in a decent crowd as guitarist and singer John Paul took to the audience to sing along to their hit single, “Swim.” Surfer Blood’s sunny post-punk hooks brought some sunlight to the not-so-sunny Saturday morning.

Epicenter 2010 Review (Eminem, KISS, Suicidal Tendencies, Blink-182 and more)

October 15th, 2010

Sweltering heat engulfing Fontana set the initial backdrop for the weekend’s monstrous and highly anticipated festival, Epicenter 2010. The 106 degrees did not hinder the crowds, yet it incited the vibe and set the mood for the astonishing acts to come. Though the two days seemed to be dominated by headliners, Eminem, KISS, Rise Against, and Blink-182, every act had exceptional performances with two complete days of outstanding music. However, before we discuss the music festivities, an insight on the festival itself is always important. One thing is certain: KROQ understands how to host an event, for there were no major problems with logistics and facilities at Epicenter. Yes, there was the standard $5 water (which you could refill) and high-priced food, but that is expected at all concerts. There was somewhat adequate shelter from the blistering and unrelenting Inland Empire sun. All in all, compared to recent festivals, Epicenter 2010 was well orchestrated and highly enjoyable. But that’s enough non-music talk. Now to the reason 50,000 packed the Auto Club Speedway: the epic line-up.
