Photos and words by Jay Mendez
Chico, California’s post hardcore quartet Hail The Sun opened up the night in Pomona, CA. The four-piece demands attention when they get on stage. This opening act makes for a room full of crowd surfing and sing alongs, filling the room with energy using powerful drums and strong vocals, both provided by Donovan Melero.
On stage next the indie rock outfit and St. Louis natives, Foxing, brings a unique and vibrant sound. The band brought out a different kind of energy to the night featuring a soothing trumpet, emotional vocals and melodic guitar riffs. Almost a polar opposite to the previous act, this new sound provided a more diverse and extremely entertaining show before the headliners hit the stage.
The long awaited Circa Survive took the stage, front and center, to a packed house and went straight to business. Frontman Anthony Green jumped and ran across stage passionately singing hits such as “Get Out”, “Rites of Investiture” and more. The entire crowd sang along with him as he reached in and held hands with the front row, even hugging crowd surfers as they reached the barricade.
Circa Survive is an act you don’t want to miss. The band’s tour is soon coming to a close, but will be at the Shaky Knees festival in early May. See them while you can!
