Show Review

Don Broco at Selective Hearing Tour Orlando, FL - 3/31/18

Recently I partnered with New Fury Media and had the opportunity to photograph Don Broco while they're on the current Our Last Night Selective Hearing Tour. The show which was originally supposed to take place at The Social sold out over two months ago, leading the venue to be upgraded to The Beacham. 

Formed in 2008, the band are English alternative-rock and will be on the full last cross-country Vans Warped Tour this summer. So if you haven't seen them yet, you can purchase upcoming tickets here.

The Mardi Gras festival originally started February 3rd and is running now through April 7th; you can purchase tickets here. Festivities are included with your theme park admission, Annual Pass or Seasonal Pass. There's lots of activities going on throughout the day, from select date concerts to watching the nightly parades or trying some of the delicious Cajun-style food (available for purchase.)

Later in the night the band Fifth Harmony took the stage. We were fortunate enough to see them perform before their announcement of their hiatus this morning via Instagram. The girls came on stage and performed songs such as "Worth It" and "Work From Home." The band recently celebrated six years since they formed on The X Factor.

Overall it was a spectacular day checking out the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras and the best way to end the night with an amazing performance by a band that's come so far over the last few years.

Photo Review: Beautiful Death Tour Orlando, FL - 2/22/18

In partnership with New Fury Media. I recently attended and photographed the Beautiful Death Tour featuring Kyle Lucas, Dayshell, Ghost Town, and Slaves. This took place in Downtown Orlando at Soundbar (Backbooth's new name.)

First up was rapper Kyle Lucas. I had seen Kyle first perform in 2016 in Orlando, and it had been a while since he came back but sounded better than ever. Drawing in the crowd especially with his surprise duet. Bringing out Slaves' vocalist Jonny Craig, the crowd went wild as the two began to sing the well-known song "I Still Feel Her Pt. 5." 

KYLE LUCAS:

Next to perform was the band Dayshell, led by vocalist Shayley Bourget (the old clean vocalist for Of Mice & Men.) The band played familiar songs such as "Not Coming In" and "Low Light." The band got the crowd hype with some post-hardcore jams.

DAYSHELL:

Following was Ghost Town, a band I hadn't seen live since my first show when they opened for Issues' headliner tour in 2014. Playing old songs such as, "Tentacles" and "You're So Creepy" while switching it up for newer songs such as "Modern Tragedy" and "Hell." The crowd was moshing and stage diving and causing a scene.

 

Finally the band everyone came to see took the stage, Slaves. The tour name itself was in honor of the band's recent album release titled Beautiful Death which is one of my personal favorite albums of 2018 so far. Mixing up songs playing old ones such as "White Girls.." and "The Fire Down Below," while also playing newer hit song such as "True Colors," "I Know A Lot Of Artists" and "Patience is the Virtue." The crowd was screaming the lyrics back and throwing themselves onto the stage left and right.

 

Overall every band gave an amazing performance and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The lineup is stacked and is one of my favorites so far that I've seen. I can't wait till they all come back next time.
