November began with a bang when The Neighbourhood brought their “Middle of Somewhere Tour” to Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with Claud and Slow Hollows for a long-awaited and fulfilling performance.
The all-Aussie progressive invasion of Caligula’s Horse, Circles and I Built The Sky put on an enjoyable show blending flawless technical skill and plenty of groove to a sold-out London audience at Boston Music Room.
On November 1st, Bostonian metalheads turned out for black mass presided over by Polish blackened death metallers Behemoth. Currently in the midst of their Ecclesia Diabolica America tour, the band is accompanied by arguably the godfathers of melodic death metal, Sweden’s At The Gates and West Coast black metal act Wolves In The Throne Room.
Fozzy was accompanied by Hardcore Superstar, Madame Mayhem, and The Last Band when they hit Manchester’s Club Academy on November 1st and it was a knock out!
Bear Hands recently landed in Boston and showered the House of Blues with their entrancing sound. The crowd was sparse early in the evening, but by the time they took the stage, the venue had filled right in.
Before the show started, Flyleaf played a special 3 song acoustic set to fans that signed up for a VIP package. VIP packages included a meet & greet and picture with the entire band, and a Flyleaf VIP laminate, and tote bag. Kristen’s vocal range filled up the venue creating an utter silence filled with amazement.
If there are any doubts whether the new singer of Flyleaf, Kristen May, had what it took to keep Flyleaf alive, seeing them live will erase them. Kristen’s voice is so magnetic, pun intended. Flyleaf played a 10-song set, ranging from classic hits such as “I’m So Sick” and “Fully Alive,” to brand new singles including the heavy hitter “Set Me On Fire.” Later in the show, Kristen joined the middle of the crowd, interacting and high-fiving fans from the entire room. Flyleaf played at Slim’s in San Francisco, CA on November 1st.
On November 1st, Georgia natives, Lullwater, gave the crowd a huge dose of pure rock and roll as they opened up for Flyleaf at Slim’s in San Francisco, CA. With a little bit of modern and classic rock, Lullwater reminded fans that rock and roll music is truly alive. During their set not a single person was left standing still as they ripped through power chords. Vocalist/rhythm guitarist, John Strickland, struck audiences with his raspy voice. Lullwater’s sound mixed Seattle’s grunge, garage rock and roll sound with a tinge of Southern rock thrown into the mix. Strickland reminisces, “My whole childhood was Nineties rock. For me growing up in Georgia, the Seattle scene was like a mythological place where all of these amazing musicians came out of. I told the guys we needed to go there to record. We aimed to bring Athens to Seattle, and being there definitely changed us. It brought us a lot closer together, and we found the sound we’d always wanted.” Lullwater is a band on the rise that fans need to know about! Check out their self-titled album, Lullwater.
You couldn’t get better Swedish excellence on one stage than this – both Opeth and Katatonia in one night. Literally, all this show was missing was a set from In Flames… and ABBA. It was a sold-out show in Rams Head Live, Baltimore as people came in droves to see their favorite Nordic acts in the flesh.
