Going to get this started again... Here are my videos from Norma Jean's show in Columbia, SC last Friday. All videos 1080p HD quality, if you like what you see, feel free to comment (on both here and/or on the videos), and please subscribe!
Really solid show, first time seeing the opener Luther- who put on a very good set, immediately caught the attention of the crowd... A lot of people moved from the back of the floor up front within a matter of minutes, check out their stuff if you haven't!
Crowd seemed really lukewarm when Luther asked who was pumped for the Menzingers... Only me and a few other sporadic cheers, but that changed once they got going on their set. If anyone wants to hear some awesome stuff, definitely check The Menzingers out, easily one of my favorite Punk bands.
Bouncing Souls: Long story short, I am now splitting my time when I'm not in college in South Carolina between Florida and New Jersey... I have never seen one of NJ's finest Punk acts, The Bouncing Souls back home, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity. Good thing I made the decision to go, such a fun set they put on, and beyond honored I was able to finally see them!
Now following are both sets in entirety that I recorded, all videos are 1080p HD Quality so enjoy!

Been a while since I've written in this, but here are my videos from last month's Enter Shikari and Letlive show in St. Petersburg, Florida... Both bands killed it, great energy from both as per usual.
Show in St. Pete was awesome... ATS was decent, and like what everyone else has been saying for the most part, they did an ok job at getting the crowd hyped up. Letlive was fucking outstanding, really all I can say there, and Enter Shikari as great as usual, had to leave a bit early unfortunately though. (Missed Arguing, Stand Your Ground/ES, and the two encores).
The rest of the setlists will follow once I find them out 100%, but here is Emmure's:
1. Children Of Cybertron
2. 10 Signs That You Should Leave
3. I Thought You Met Telly and Turned Me Into Casper
4. Sound Wave Superior
5. Solar Flare Homicide
6. Rusted Over Wet Dreams
7. Chicago's Finest
8. Demons With Ryu
9. R2 Deepthroat
10. When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong
Fun show overall. Lower Than Atlantis was different, but they were good. Alot of people in the crowd were lukewarm on them though. Some dude in a grey hoodie gave them a thumbs down or some shit and the lead singer went off.
Evergreen was awesome, so much better than they were at Thrash & Burn last year.
MMI put on a really fun show, and they didn't sound that bad. From what usually happens, their performances will probably go downhill as the tour progresses.
Chiodos was outstanding as usual, nothing more to be said.
Emmure once again destroyed it live. 3rd time seeing them, still haven't been let down by their live show.
I got the fuck out of Starland before AA started.
My videos from 3/11(only had one battery so I couldn't record all four sets in full) (HD):
Went to this at Starland Ballroom last week, and had a blast. All of the bands brought their A Game, and not one was disappointing.
It Could End Tomorrow: Meh, they were OK, but nothing good.
Fit For An Autopsy: Amazing for a local band. Pretty sure they have some former members of both Through the Eyes of the Dead and The Acacia Strain, so check them out. Highly recommended
Conducting From the Grave: Crowd was kind of dead for them, but they were really good. Looking forward to checking out their new album when it comes out.
Molotov Solution: Good stuff. Got the crowd moving, and their set was really good.
The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza: Awesome band live, Their guitarrist is insane too.
MyChildren MyBride: Very good, but a bit of a letdown. Hoped they would've played a bit more of their old stuff, but they were still good.
Suicide Silence: So much better than they were at Warped. The crowd was amazing for them, the pit was huge, and they played flawlessly.
If you went to this tour at Starland or any other venue, let me know here how you thought the show was. Or if you plan on attending this show, also say so here :). I have a bunch of videos from the show up on youtube, so if you like what you see, subscribe to my channel!
Next up is a double header for me on the weekend of November 5 and 6. November 5 I will be going to see A Day to Remember/Underoath/The Word Alive/Close Your Eyes (Which I am stoked for beyond belief) at the Asbury Park Convention Hall and on October 6 I'm going to the Atreyu/Blessthefall/Chiodos/Architects/Endless Hallway show at Starland Ballroom.
Missed Texas in July, which is a huge bummer, but oh well.
The Crimson Armada- Good but worse than I thought they would be, probably set my expectations too high.
Oh, Sleeper- Solid but nothing great.
ABR- Absolutely 100% fucking insane, the crowd was mental, and they were amazing.
missed A Plea for Purging but got to meet Jake Luhr instead, which was completely worth it. Awesome guy to talk to, and really nice.
Impending Doom- Good, even though they played pretty much the same set as Thrash & Burn I liked them a bit better then.
Sleeping Giant- Great band, but way too preachy.
The Devil Wears Prada- So much fun. I was in the pit for pretty much they're entire set. Made up for the abomination that was their set at Bamboozle.
I was also shocked how many HXC Kids we're there. I knew the bands that played would draw some, but I didn't think as many as there were would show up.
As for setlists, most are partial but I can tell you some songs that were played.
The Crimson Armada- All i know is that they played In The Eyes Of God & Revelations
Oh Sleeper- opened with Son Of The Morning, closed with The Finisher
August Burns Red looked something like this:
The Eleventh Hour
Truth Of A Liar (Pretty sure they played it)
Up Against The Ropes
Thirty And Seven
Impending Doom- Same as their Thrash & Burn set.
Sleeping Giant-I know they played Gang Signs, Blame It On The Holy Rollers, No One Leaves This Room Sick, and The Army Of The Chosen One, the rest I'm not sure about.
TDWP- same as their Back To The Roots setlist.
If anyone was there, feel free to comment on how you thought the show went! Or if you weren't, feel free to comment as well haha. There's a pretty substantial gap before my next concerts, as I won't be attending any until October 16 and 17, with Circa Survive/Dredg/Codeseven/Animals As Leaders on 10/16 at the Stone Pony, and Suicide Silence/MCMB/Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza/Molotov Solution/Conducting From the Grave on 10/17 at Starland Ballroom. If you're going to one or both of those concerts or tours elsewhere or in NJ, let me know here.
Awesome show. All bands (besides Kittie imo) were anywhere ranging from very good to amazing. Chelsea Grin didnt make it because the singer had health problems apparently, and Greeley Estates didn't make it because of RV trouble. Here's my recap.
Motionless In White- much better than I thought they would be. met the lead singer, cool guy.
Periphery- Absolutely amazing. The crowd was pretty wild during their set, which surprised me, but they were spot on. Lead singer thought he was in NY for a brief second, before realizing he was in NJ lol. Also met him, and he was really nice as well.
Evergreen Terrace- Also good, but not as good as I thought they would be.
Impending Doom- Good, the pits were huge during their set.
Stick To Your Guns- Amazing. They have become one of my favorite bands I have seen.
Kittie- Incredibly bland and boring imo. Nu-metal isn't my cup of tea as well.
Born of Osiris- Incredible, the crowd was insane during their set, and their performance was awesome as expected.
Left before Asking Alexandria.
Full sets of all bands (besides Kittie) should be up soon on my youtube channel.
Next up is RevGen 2010 With The Devil Wears Prada, August Burns Red, Impending Doom, Oh, Sleeper, For Today, Sleeping Giant, and Texas In July. Until September 5th, This is CVS24 Signing out.
