Alternative band Taking Back Sunday played their second consecutive show in Michigan on Sunday, at the Crofoot Ballroom, to a sold out crowd that was immersed by opening act All Get Out and then was riled-up by hardcore journeymen Every Time I Die as direct support on the night.
Singer/songwriter Nathan Hussey, of All Get Out, and his band pulled the crowd in with their energetic set comprised of seven songs from the bands career, which included Hussey twisting his ankle and proceeding to launch his shoes into the crowd after recovering for a minute.
Next on the stage was Every Time I Die, who sport a much heavier sound than the opener and the headliner, but lead singer Keith Buckley made it clear to the fans of both ETID and TBS that touring with Taking Back Sunday was something he’s wanted to do for a long time, and the two bands sounds compliment each other.
ETID started with the riff-laden “We’rewolf.” The band shredded through songs spanning their nine-year career with songs like “The Coin Has a Say” and “The New Black.” They ended their set with “Fear and Trembling”.
Taking Back Sunday hit the stage last starting with the title track from their most recent album Tidal Wave before going backwards in their catalog to play “Error: Operator” from hit album Louder Now. Playing through classic tracks like “Set Phasers to Stun,” “Flicker, Fade,” “Liar (It Takes One to Know One,” and a cover of Green Day‘s “She,” lead-singer Adam Lazarra gave humorous glimpses into the meanings behind the songs.
TBS hit their stride after playing “What’s It Feel Like to Be a Ghost?,” and finished the set out with fan-favorites “A Decade Under the Influence,” “Cute Witout the ‘E’) and smash-hit “MakeDamnSure”.
TBS, ETID and All Get Out will finish the last leg of the tour later in August.
