The Skinny: Whether you’re a fan of Rise Against or not, there are just some bands you need to see live. And Rise Against should be at the top of that list! Not only do they sound exactly like their CDs, pumping up the crowd seems like second nature to them. Between lead guitarist, Zach Blair, ripping into power chords while jumping off speakers and vocalist, Tim Mcilrath, getting up close and personal with the screaming crowd, you are in for a wicked good time. Rise Against played at the Aftershock Festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.
