The final show of Alkaline Trio’s tour with Off With Their Heads and Bayside came to a close at one of the most magical places in CA -The Downtown Disney House of Blues. Only this one promised to be even crazier than the one in LA just the night before. The sold out crowd showed up early and with good reason too. Off With Their Heads played a hell of an opening set. I wish I would have seen them play the first night. I feel the exact same way about Bayside. Due to a series of very unfortunate events I showed up at the venue on their second to last song at the LA show. I wanted to cry, seriously. I mean this -if Bayside is ever support or better yet headlining, you owe it to yourself and the music Gods to attend this show. You will have the best fucking time. Bayside kills it always. Not only is the NY band consistently putting out fantastic music, they consistently put on a fantastic show. Their setlist was amazing. We heard songs off their newest record like “Sick, Sick, Sick” and “Already Gone” but also got to hear classics like “Devotion and Desire” and “We’ll Be Okay.” Whoever wasn’t sold on Bayside before their set definitely became a believer by the end of it. When Alkaline Trio hit the stage the already warmed up crowd was ready. Singer Matt Skiba in awesome sunglasses hit the stage and got to playing immediately. Simultaneously the crowd surfing began. The show was nuts and chaotic but it was in a good way. You could just tell everyone at the House of Blues was having an amazing time. There were so many kind folks at this show. It was definitely one of my favorites. I can’t wait for either of the bands to return.
