Chill on the Hill 2014 Part VI: Chevelle, Awolnation, and Rise Against

September 22, 2014

While I’m not a regular listener to any of the last three bands to play Chill on the Hill, I was still excited to see their live shows as I had heard great things about all of them. First up was Chevelle, which was probably the band I had the most...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part V: Brick + Mortar, USS, Taking Back Sunday, and Silverstein

September 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 Skaters

September 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 Offspring

September 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 Bots

September 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 Goodness

September 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...

Mo Pop Festival 2014 Part IV: Tokyo Police Club, The Neighbourhood, and Lord Huron

August 1, 2014

We were finally into the last leg of the Festival and I couldn’t believe how quickly it had gone by. I was so elated to have gotten to see so many great bands perform and still so excited for the last batch. So with some pizza and water, we re-energized and prepared to close out...

Mo Pop Festival 2014 Part II: Wild Cub, J Roddy Waltson & the Business, and Hundred Waters

July 21, 2014

The next three bands are the ones that I knew the least about and therefore were on the bottom of my Mo Pop Festival priority list. I know that seeing a band live can often sway me into at least appreciating them more and I was looking forward to getting to know these bands more...

Mo Pop Festival 2014 Part I: Flint Eastwood, MisterWives, and Bear Hands

July 18, 2014

I knew as soon as I saw the list of bands that would be playing this year’s Mo Pop Festival that there was no way that I couldn’t go. With a great mixture of bands that I had wanted to see for years and newer bands that had just recently made my concert wishlist, I...
