Even though Warped Tour in “Seattle” was over a month ago, I still remember it clearly.
This year, Warped Tour was in Auburn instead of the Gorge. At first I was leery of the location but it turned out to be pretty amazing.
The day was hot but the bands were rocking so you didn’t really care about the heat. It was our first time seeing many of the bands but we got to revisit a few bands we hadn’t seen in years. We even decided to head down to Portland the following day to see them again. Unfortunately the set up at the Rose Quarter was not optimal so we didn’t see many bands.
Head over to see the photographs page to see some of what the Fuzzies saw at Warped Tour this year.
Recently TheFuzzies have been hitting the Seattle concert scene.
First up was Opeth. Their set was different from what I expected and it was AMAZING. I cannot wait for them to make it back out to Seattle.
The next show was Friendly Fires with Theophilus London opening up. Definitely had to have your dancing shoes on when you see these two bands.
Last but not least was Mariachi el Bronx rounding out the month of October. Wow. These guys are such great performers. It’s amazing how a band with hardcore punk roots can be so diverse. I love this band. You should definitely see them if they make it out to your neck of the woods. Actually, all the bands in this post are worth seeing!
Check out some photos from each of these shows here.
It’s not a true summer without Warped Tour.
Every year the Fuzzies try to make the trip out to catch some favorite bands, new bands, bands we never heard of, the sun, and, of course, Metal! This year was no different. A few bands wowed us, some were underwhelming but in general a blast to be had.
I wish I was able to take more photos but other forces were against it.
Check out the photographs page to see the craziness that was Warped Tour 2011.
Photos include: Family Force 5, Gym Class Heroes, I Set My Friends on Fire, and A Day to Remember.
A few weeks ago, Claire and I paid a visit to Seattle. This time we were there to see dredg. We’ve seen these guys so many times but it never gets old. They are such great performers.
Opening up the night was a local band, who we missed. However we caught the second act, The Trophy Fire, and they were just wonderful. Shortly after they wrapped up their set, Fair to Midland took the stage. To be honest, I listened to a few songs before hitting up the show and I liked what I heard. What I did not expect was so much energy! Turns out, I listened to their mellow songs not knowing that the singer would rock the stage and try to hang from the non-existent rafters. It was great seeing dredg come out and interact with the crowd. I love hearing their older songs because they take me to a happy place. I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing these guys perform live.
Every one of you reading this should stop by the photographs page to see some of the action.
Amazing, April isn’t even over and the Fuzzies hit the town for another concert. This time it was for Taproot and openers, Absolution and Falling Blind.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we even decided to see Absolution and Taproot at the Backstage Bar and Grill in Tacoma two nights later.
If you get the chance you should definitely go see Taproot and Absolution rock the stage.
Head on over to the photographs section to see some of the action.
New photographs have finally been posted.
Claire and I went to see Kopek at Silver Platters where they did an acoustic set. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful they were acoustic and live. After their set, we were very excited to see what they had in store for us at the Cold show.
After a fun set from Oceans Divide, a band from Spokane, WA, Kopek took the stage. Once again, this Irish trio blew us away. They are definitely a band worth seeing live. I would highly recommend seeing them when they come through your city. Egypt Central took the stage shortly after Kopek wrapped their amazing set. I was not too familiar with the band from Memphis, but they sure knew how to rock the stage.
Visit the photographs page to catch a glimpse of the rock show.
TheFuzzies.net might get back into the action. I might start going to shows more often than before. I really would love to get back into the photography game. I have missed being creative. I need to start working on this site more, also.
I hope to maybe go through some old photos and add those for posterity sake. Maybe not. I do know that I want to start updating this site again. I hope to get it up and running full speed in the near future.
Ryan Star’s Atlantic Records debut album is finally going to hit shelves August 3rd! I cannot wait. He’s also having an album release party in NY. Be there if you can! I know I’m sure as hell trying to make it out.
