The Rockshow at the End of the World Tour- Chicago, IL
October 16th—House of Blues—Chicago, IL
It was a relatively calm and cool Tuesday evening in Chicago as I headed to the House of Blues. When I arrived inside the venue, the calm feeling immediately disappeared. The room was packed and I could tell the crowd was full of anticipation for the promising night ahead of them just by the looks on their faces.
First up that evening was Hit the Lights. As a band around and touring for several years, I had high expectations for their performance. Unfortunately I missed the first few songs of their set, but even coming into it late, I was blown away by their stage presence. The best part of the set was when vocalist Nick Thompson took the time to appreciate and recognize the fans who literally sang every word of their songs—ones both old and off of their new release, Invicta. If a band takes the time to appreciate their fans, no matter how many, I think that they really understand how a concert really should work. I am never disappointed by the heart Hit the Lights brings to the table each time, they understand their crowd, and give them everything they have.
Next on the bill was The Downtown Fiction. It had been awhile since I last saw them perform, and truthfully I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. When they took the stage, the crowd was extremely receptive, it was definitely evident that they were ready for them to finally come back. With each song, vocalist Cameron Leahy really brought a unique feel to their set with his expressive performance that fits well with the band as a whole. Their set had a nice mix of a handful of favorites off of their full-length album Let’s Be Animals including “Thanks For Nothing”, “Freak”. And of course the crowd favorite “I Just Wanna Run”.
After The Downtown Fiction brought up the night’s energy, The Summer Set came and kept it going. The last time The Summer Set was on the road with All Time Low, they had recently released their second full-length album Everything’s Fine; now the band is back with the anticipation of a record with their new label Fearless Records. The crowd got a sneak peek of what is to come in early 2013 when they performed their infectious single “Fuck You Over.” I really felt as if The Summer Set as a band has really grown over the past few months; the positive difference in stage presence was substantial from start to finish.
It was finally time for All Time Low to hit the stage. This was the moment so many fans were waiting for all day— when I looked around I saw that every single person in the room had so much passion and anticipation in them. As soon as the lights dimmed, the crowd exploded with energy I’ve never really experienced before. Maybe it’s because the fans knew that All Time Low was back to the place that they used to be, but with a fresher and better perspective. The set had hidden gems of nostalgic songs off of their first full-length release, So Wrong It’s Right, such as “Shameless” and “The Beach” along with more recent songs that left fans with a satisfying mix of old and new. Needless to say there was something for all members of the audience—whether it was their first All Time Low show or they had all of their sex related jokes memorized. I’m not sure if I could pinpoint the source of this All Time Low, maybe it’s coming back to their roots on Hopeless Records or maybe it’s their phenomenal new release, Don’t Panic, whatever it is I sincerely hope it stays with them as a band because it was an incredible thing to experience. Despite their absolutely insane schedules, ranging from press interviews to fan club meet and greets, All Time Low really gave everything they had to their fans and their fans gave it back to them in a way that is genuine and can only be understood if you have a chance to watch it in person.
