Every Time I Die Overpowers the Mercury Ballroom Stage with Real Friends,Â Counterparts,Â Brigades and Â Gatherers.
Stopping in Louisville on The Common Vision Tour, Every Time I Die Came blasting onto the Mercury Ballroom Stage with Gun’s a blazin’ starting their set off with, â€œWeâ€™re wolf,â€ â€œthirst,â€ and â€œDecayinâ€™ With the Boys,â€ and never let up. The Mercury Ballroom Stage could barely contain the intense energy that the group was pouring out.
Jordan, Andy and Stephen were all over the stage, standing on speaker stacks and jumping off the bass drum while Keith never seemed to stop moving. The crowd, feeding off the bands energy, was moshing and rocking hard, giving everything they had back to ETID. Keith promised those in attendance he would Hi-Five each and every fan that made it over the front barricade which of course started a relentless surge of crowd surfers (close to the end of their set Keith pointed to the bruises on his arm from all Hi-Fives he was giving and begged for more).
Their set also included their cover of Nirvanaâ€™s classic, â€œTourettesâ€ and fan favorite, â€œThe New Blackâ€ before ending their seventeen song, sixty plus minute set with â€œEbolaramaâ€ and â€œMoorâ€. It was an incredible evening and a great performance from Every Time I Die, A must see High-Energy live show.
Every Time I Die is: Keith Buckley/Vocals, Â Jordan Buckley/Guitar, Â Andy Williams/Guitar, Â Stephen Micciche/Bass and Daniel Davison/Drums.
From Tinsley Park, Illinois, Pop Punk band Real Friends took to the stage as the eveningâ€™s main support to a room full of frenzied fans. Â They opened their eleven-song, hour long set with â€œLoose Ends,â€ â€œDirty Water,â€ â€œCover You Up,â€ and â€œAnchor Downâ€ before stopping briefly to let the fans catch their breath from their singing and thrashing around.
Lead singer Dan Lambton asked for the crowd to treat everyone like real people, donâ€™t be so worried about what others are doing, to stop with the hate and have respect for one another. It was sincere and heartfelt and spoke to what the band is all about.Â Real Friends wrapped up their set with â€œLate Nights in My Carâ€ and â€œI Donâ€™t Love You Anymoreâ€ fully satisfying the Real Friends fans in attendance.
Real Friends is Dan Lambton/Vocals, Kyle Fasel/Bass, Dave Knox and Eric Haines/guitar Brian Blake/Drums,
