It seems odd that it’s only now on the 10th anniversary of Say Anything‘s ...Is a Boy and 15th anniversary of Saves the Day‘s Through Being Cool that I finally get to see either band live in person, but the double bill (along with Reggie and the Full Effect) brought their current tour through the Pageant for an entertainingly nostalgic mid-week show. Will Kyle @ KDHX has a write-up of the show, so here are some photos below to go along.
Bringing the sounds of their latest album, Love Death Immortality, to the Pageant later that evening, The Glitch Mob stopped by Vintage Vinyl to spend some time meeting their fans (and even providing snacks for the crowd in the form of free Mission Taco!). As you’ll tell from the following pictures, it was also an interesting evening to see what items the crowd brought out for autographs.
“It’s one of my favorite records this year” – said a buddy whose musical tastes I think are rad, regarding K. Flay‘s recent release Life as a Dog. The crowd congregating at The Demo undoubtedly would have said the same, with tons of hands raised and bodies bobbing along with the rapper/producer (apparently one of the top 10 you should know about).
Opening for K. Flay was the California crew, Night Riots, who certainly cast off a Disintegration-era Cure / M83 vibe run through rock filter. Great guys, who were also kind enough to take a quick stroll through the Grove for a few pre-show pics.
With a dimmer night light-wise, it seemed like a fun time to experiment with multiple-exposures, so enjoy the unorthodox set after the jump.
While it was a bummer to say goodbye to the summer concert season, 105.7 the Point put on one last Big Summer Show to help ease us into fall. The afternoon was a great showcase for all things rock, from the raw brutality of Royal Blood to the confetti-caked Ok Go. Capping it off with the slick sounds of Bastille, these Big Summer Shows have been great “mini-festivals” to catch favorite and new-favorite bands without the camping or crowds of the concert festival circuits.

Rise Against fans got a double dose of their favorite band, when the quartet stopped by Vintage Vinyl to chat and sign copies of their latest release, The Black Market. Be sure to pick up a copy at your record store of choice and check out pictures from the event below.
