Dashboard Confessional, All American Rejects, Social Animals 7/16/17

Dashboard Confessional, after several years of success, still know exactly what reaches out to an audience. That much is clear in the array of ages and backgrounds the crowd came from. I had fully expected the large number of pre-teen girls still fawning over Chris Carrabba, “world’s cutest guy” according to Good Clean Fun. However […]

Mac Sabbath Metalachi Okilly Dokilly Mockstrosity Tour 2017 The Waiting Room Lounge Omaha, Nebraska March 8th, 2017

I honestly had no idea what to expect from the Mockstrosity Tour. I’ve never been a huge fan of “parody bands”. As a child of the 80’s, I grew up hearing Weird Al Yankovic on the radio and […]
