Chill on the Hill 2015 Part IV: JR JR, X Ambassadors, Cold War Kids, Coheed and Cambria, and Cage the ElephantOctober 6, 2015
To say that I was excited to see JR JR (formerly Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.) live again would be quite the understatement. They are currently one of my favorite bands and their show back in April of last year is still one of my favorite concerts of all time. The hometown boys wasted no time, kicking...
Chill on the Hill 2015 Part III: Five Hundredth Year, Kaleido, The Struts, Civil Twilight, Robert DeLong, and The Glorious SonsOctober 5, 2015
I felt like I was still defrosting from day one of Chill on the Hill when we arrived at the venue for day two. Thankfully it was already significantly warmer and the sun was shining brightly. I was still feeling that concert high from the previous day and was excited to see what...
Chill on the Hill 2015 Part II: The Wombats, We Came As Romans, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Panic! At The Disco, and WeezerOctober 4, 2015
The second half of day one of Chill on the Hill 2015 was packed pretty tightly with bands that I was very excited to see which is great because with how ill prepared I was for the cold, I’m not sure I could have made it through without them.
The Wombats are a...
Chill on the Hill 2015 Part I: Arkells, Coleman Hell, Vinyl Theatre, Beartooth, Night Riots, and Thousand Foot KrutchOctober 3, 2015
We had such a great time last year at Chill on the Hill that it was basically guaranteed that we’d snatch up tickets as soon as they went on sale. When the list of bands was released all I needed to see was Weezer’s name on the list to completely sell me...
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part VI: Chevelle, Awolnation, and Rise AgainstSeptember 22, 2014
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part V: Brick + Mortar, USS, Taking Back Sunday, and SilversteinSeptember 21, 2014
Brick + Mortar was another band that I went into without knowing anything about. I knew it was going to be a good set when shortly after they started, Brandon Asraf asked the hungover crowd “All the people sitting down, why the fuck are you sitting down?” It was a nice,...
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part IV: Hollow & Akimbo, Kyng, The Orwells, and SkatersSeptember 20, 2014
Having Hollow & Akimbo open up day two of Chill on the Hill was just icing on the cake of an already spectacular day of music. One of my favorite things about their self-titled debut was that each song was intricately layered enough so that you wouldn’t be able to...
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part III: Bad Religion, A Day to Remember, and The OffspringSeptember 19, 2014
It was finally time for the three headlining acts to start their sets and the amphitheater had filled to the maximum capacity in preparation. First up was Bad Religion and from their first song I found myself wondering ‘why haven’t I been listening to these guys before this?’ I’ve heard of...
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part II: Portugal. The Man, Sycamour, Grouplove, and The BotsSeptember 18, 2014
Aside from The Offspring, Portugal. The Man was basically the selling point of getting tickets to both days of Chill on the Hill. I had been waiting to see them live for years and it seemed that every time they were in town previously there was one reason or...
Chill on the Hill 2014 Part I: Bristol Street, Sleeper Agent, and My GoodnessSeptember 17, 2014
Chill on the Hill may be part of the reason I got the worst sinus infection of my life but I have to say that it was worth it. Two days filled with bands that I had been waiting years to see along with some surprises. There were a few things that I wasn’t happy...
