SOMA in San Diego, CA

The Story So Far and Four Year Strong are currently on the road with California bands Souvenirs and Terror.  A diverse lineup sure, but this is a tour you won’t want to miss!  Souvenirs kicked the night off with what ended up being the chillest set of the night.

Once Terror hit the stage the crowd and the venue began to warm up.  Folks started making their way to the front via crowd surfing and a fairly large mosh pit broke out.  Frontman Scott Vogel commanded the crowd while simultaneously slaying on stage.  It was way cool.

Once Four Year Strong hit the stage all hell broke loose in the crowd.  They went nuts as the band jumped all around the stage in classic FYS style.  They powered through a 12 song set that left the crowd sweaty but happy.  The energy peaked when Alan Day met the crowd at the barricade for “Wasting Time (Enternal Summer).” It was RAD and luckily for everyone the fun didn’t stop there.  It carried right on over for The Story So Far.  They started their set with “Things I Can’t Change” and the crowd sang along with frontman Parker Cannon who we found behind a mic stand for once.  He used it until the end of the set when he asked the crowd for their opinion (they hated it) and proceeded to set it aside saying “I didn’t know you felt so strongly about it.” The band played perfectly with tons of energy though they were missing their original drummer Ryan Torf, currently recovering from surgery. The band ended their set with “High Regard” as everyone in attendance sang the lyrics in their entirety.  The show was definitely one for the books.  Both Four Year Strong and The Story So Far are bands that get better and better each time you see them.  They put on a clinic for the ideal show even with a barricade.  Make sure you catch this tour when it hits a city near you.  Dates are here.
