Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls (The Observatory. August 5, 2016)

Frank Turner

As hard as I’ve tried to fight it, the idea that you slow down as you get older is starting to ring true for myself. But life has a way of throwing you chances to live fast and die old. With Frank Turner headlining a show that would go well past midnight, tonight was one of those chances.

Motion City Soundtrack (HOB Anaheim. May 11, 2016)

Motion City SoundtrackI celebrated my 30th birthday this past January. A quiet celebration at home reminded me that I’m not in high school anymore: I don’t get wild every weekend, my knees hurt at the end of the day, my show attendance has (unfortunately) decreased, and bands I listened to are hanging it up. Unfortunately, one of those bands is Motion City Soundtrack. A completely sold out (and packed to the brim) House of Blues was a great send-off for one of the band’s last southern California shows.

The Wonder Years (The Observatory. November 6, 2015)

The Wonder Years

But over the years that I’ve been listening to them, not only have I heard their sound progress but I’ve also noticed their fan base grow. Tonight’s sold out show at the Observatory was another milestone in their journey. Supported by two rising musical talents in You Blew It! and State Champs as well as inspiring veterans Motion City Soundtrack, the Wonder Years brought a great show on a Friday night.

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls (HOB Anaheim. October 24, 2015)

Frank Turner

It’s been two years since I’ve seen (let alone shot) Frank Turner live. Not sure how I’ve gone this long since he’s popped up numerous times for small surprise shows and what not around Los Angeles. I’ve always known him to be a great performer, so I knew tonight would be a reminder of how much I’d been missing since I last saw him on stage. What I didn’t know was that the entire night was packed with performers that would make the night incredibly special.
