The Fox Theatre in Pomona, CA

Relient K are currently on a co-headlining tour with Motion City Soundtrack and they’ve brought along Austin band Driver Friendly.  The tour stopped at The Fox Theatre in Pomona last weekend.  I missed Driver Friendly completely because of an issue at the door but from what I could hear outside the venue the band sounded great.  I believe I heard a Britney Spears cover but I’m not entirely sure.  (I always have Britney Spears’ songs in my head).  After some awesome help from the ladies at the box office table I got inside just in time for Relient K.  They started their set with “The One I’m Waiting For”  and continued playing hits off Mmhmm.  They also played earlier jams like “Sadie Hawkins Dance” and “Hello McFly” and the crowd loved every second of it.  They finished their 15 song set with “Be My Escape” and it was absolutely perfect.  Relient K is a band that is as great, if not greater live than they are recorded.  Their shows are guaranteed fun.  I can’t wait for the band to come to town again.   Motion City Soundtrack hit the stage running -as usual.  MCS is fantastic and played through various fan favorites including “The Future Freaks Me Out” and “Everything Is Alright” among many others.   With each passing song that both bands played their fan’s sang louder and louder. Towards the end of the night there was a circle pit and crowd surfers making their way towards the front.  This show was a prime example of what every show should be.  I listened to both bands a lot in high school so this show definitely gave me the warm fuzzies. Do yourself a favor and get out to this show if it hits a city near you. Dates are here.

*HUGE thanks to The Fox’s staff who helped me out tremendously at the door.*
