Read my review and take a look at my photos of Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue Acoustic Tour with What's Eating Gilbert in Providence, RI on February 1.
More than a decade after singing "I've made it this far now / And I'm not burning out" in "Way Away," Key and his bandmates are standing by those words. Yellowcard has run the gamut of highs and lows since Ocean Avenue's release; to see so many people continue to care after after all this time is further proof of the band's resiliency.

Read my review of the Worcester, MA stop of Danzig's 25th Anniversary Tour, which featured a portion of Misfits songs with guitarist Doyle.
The crowd clearly loved every second of it, as this portion of the set garnered the loudest singalongs, the biggest circle pits and the most crowd surfers of the night. Danzig seemed to feed off the audience's enthusiasm, even going on the barricade to sing along with fans a few times. Doyle is an absolute beast, physically wailing on guitar harder than anyone I've ever seen. The songs may be 30 years old, but their unrelenting energy is timeless.

Read my review of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts' surprise Unvarnished record release show at Santos Party House in New York, NY. You can also check out my photos.
Joan Jett is a bona fide rock and roll pioneer, icon and a future Hall of Famer. It was truly a treat to see her and the rest of The Blackhearts at such an intimate appearance - but I think it's safe to say that the show would have rocked just as hard regardless of the size of the venue. Unvarnished is classic Jett, and its release show followed suit.

Read my review of the Mansfield, MA stop of the Mayhem Festival here. The tour features Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, Machine Head, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth and more. You can also check out my interview with Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 here.
When the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival rolled through Mansfield, MA on July 16th, it was about 90 degrees out, humid, with no breeze and barely a cloud in the sky. A bright, sunny day doesn't exactly scream "metal" (although I suppose you could equate the heat to the fires of Hell). No matter how you put it, it was oppressively hot - but the climate didn't stop the bands nor the fans from giving their all.

Read my review of the Boston, MA stop of Say Anything's "Rarities and More Tour" with Eisley, HRVRD and I the Mighty here. It features footage of Max Bemis playing "A Boston Peace" live for the first time ever.
The intimate setting also afforded mastermind Max Bemis with the opportunity to get closer to the crowd. He said that, since they had the next day off, the band could go extra wild that night. And wild they went, for 75 intense minutes. Bemis deserves recognition for embracing the old material. He easily could have cashed his check for the rarities compilation without ever playing the songs; instead, fans are being treated to an entire tour dedicated to them. Bemis...
