Papa Roach and Seether At The Fillmore Detroit

Hard to believe Papa Roach first broke big with their single "Last Resort" way back in 2000. Fast forward 15 years and the band is still rocking as hard as ever as evidenced by their show on January 23, 2015 at the Fillmore in Detroit, MI.

Opening their set with their latest single "Face Everything And Rise" from their brand new album entitled "F.E.A.R," Papa Roach brought forth an impressive display of energy to the stage and kept  the crowd moving for the entire show. They even gave a nod to hometown hero Eminem by playing some of his song "Lose Yourself" before leading into their classic hit "Broken Home." Their set culminated with a monster performance of their aforementioned hit "Last Resort" that had the entire crowd on their feet and singing along.

Co-headliners and fellow millenial rockers, Seether also delivered solid performance. Their sound which channels the spirit of mid-90's alternative angst rock combined with the steady driving force of modern new rock thoroughly satisfied this die hard rock and roll crowd. Their song "Broken," a big radio hit for the band as it included guest vocals by Evanescence's Amy Lee, was a huge highlight of the show.

In today's musical landscape where disposable pop and EDM currently rules, it's interesting 

to see that the spirit of rock is still holding strong with fans of all ages in Detroit.

Circa Survive with Title Fight and Tera Melos

Circa Survive brought The Crofoot down on Saturday playing one of the most entertaining sets seen to date. Their melodic songs and upbeat energy filled the room full of devoted fans with the utmost joy. Circa pleased the crowd with songs like “Glass Arrows” , “Kicking Your Crosses Down” and “Strange Terrain”. They even threw in “Get Out” as their encore, which sure did please the crowd. Tera Melos and Title Flight also accompanied Circa on the tour bringing the crow to jump and scream along to all of their songs. No one left the show without a smile on their face. Make sure to catch the rest of their tour as it’s coming to its end on December 12th!

Memphis May Fire and Yellowcard both played the Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan last Friday. Making this tour very interesting since both bands are different genres it brought together all kinds of people for the show. Regardless Memphis and Yellowcard both blew the crowd away with some of their biggest hits "California", "Light Up The Sky" and one of the biggest songs of anyones childhood "Ocean Avenue" along with some pretty gnarly lights!
