POZ Discussion: The Don’t Miss Tours This Summer

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 10, 2014

image

Warped Tour is here, but there are too many other great tours this summer to not head out to. Whether it’s I Am The Avalanche and Somos or Nine Inch Nails and Soundgardner, there’s a little something for everyone. We decided to put together a new PropertyOfZack Discussion on all the “must see” tours this summer, so check them out below and feel free to reblog with the tours you can’t wait to see!

I Am The Avalanche, Somos
With the recent release of their third full length record Wolverines, Avalanche has been on the road essentially nonstop, taking this July/August to storm up and down the I-95 corridor between the greater tri-states and Florida. Even with the recent departure of founding members Mike Ireland and Kellen Robson, the NYC band is pushing on as a 4-piece and sound just as scorching as ever, living out their mission statement of good vibes, good friends, and good times. With shining newcomers Somos along for the ride as well, and with the shows in intimate spaces like Saint Vitus in Brooklyn or the Camel in Richmond, the tour will easily be one of the most sweaty, boisterous, and fun runs that’ll come through the East Coast this summer. Hold tight onto your beers. - Adrienne Fisher

The Early November, I Can Make A Mess 
Acoustic tours are great for many reasons: the smaller rooms, the calmer crowds, and the quiet nature, all of create a more intimate setting. And the best part about this intimate setting? It gives artist a chance to tell stories, talk about their inspirations, and strike up a genuine conversation with the audience. Sometimes they even take requests.

This summer The Early November is heading out on an acoustic tour that also features lead singer Ace Enders’ solo project, I Can Make A Mess. It’s a golden opportunity to see both the man and the band up close and stripped down – and definitely not one to be missed. - Becky Kovach

Touché Amoré, Tigers Jaw
Even though at first glance is seems that someone threw the names of all the bands from our circle into a bag and pulled out three random ones for this tour, in actuality, the lineup really couldn’t make more sense. It’s a meeting of the minds for three separate sonic corners of modern day punk/emo/hardcore, featuring three extraordinary and prolific bands - it’s a rare no-filler, no-bullshit bill.

POZ Discussion: The Don’t Miss Tours This Spring

by Zack Zarrillo - Mar 20, 2014

We know Warped Tour is steadily approaching, but there are too many great tours this spring to not boast about before a summer of fun. Whether it’s All Time Low and Man Overboard, Manchester OrchestraBrand New and Saves The Day, or Conor Oberst, there’s a little something for everyone this upcoming season. We decided to put together a new PropertyOfZack Discussion on all the “must see” tours this spring, so check them out below and feel free to reblog with the tours you can’t wait to see!

All Time Low, Man Overboard, Handguns 
There were probably a lot of groans when All Time Low, Man Overboard, and Handguns announced their spring tour together. After all, All Time Low fans are notoriously not-very-accommodating, and their fanbase doesn’t typically seem to extend to people who listen to Man Overboard and Handguns. Why tour together then?

Well for starters, because the fanbases don’t necessarily overlap all that much. The point of touring isn’t just to see pre-existing fans, it’s to reach new ones as well.

Also, because why not?

Personally, I was excited when I saw the announcement. These days it’s not often a tour gets announced that I actually listen to all of the bands on the bill. But this one runs three deep for me, and I consider that a major win. - Becky Kovach

Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, Light Years
Chances are, you’ve heard these names thrown around at some point in the last year. Why? Because each of these bands is an up-and-comer, the future of pop punk, and its surrounding scene. And they’re each creating a lot of buzz.

Yes, these bands are young. But they’re also massively talented and put on some of the best live shows out there. So it only makes sense that they should be heading out on tour together. One of the best tours of the spring season, in fact. 

Neck Deep. Knuckle Puck. Light Years. Remember those names. Get out to a show. Because one day they’re going to be the ones running everything. - Becky Kovach

Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devine, Balance & Composure
How many times have Andy Hull and Kevin Devine toured together? It’s gotta be at least half a dozen times by now, right? Between the 2007 Brand New tour-of-biblical-proportions and every appearance Bad Books has made, to say that the two acts run in the same circles would be an understatement. In fact, it might be kind of weird at this point to see one without the other taking the stage immediately thereafter. But as all great matchings in history, there’s a damn good reason why it keeps working. The two groups, both dancing around those trying to thumb them into categories of “indie” or “alternative,” are ninja masters of their songwriting craft and boast reputations of being incredible live performers. And they’re taking along Balance and Composure for the ride, a band for whom I claim much bias in saying that they’re just the best - but also one of the “newer” bands out there that has a lot of potential to appeal to older music fans who might be showing up to the show in work blazers rather than band tees. Manchester’s newest record in several years, Cope, will be out just in time for the tour to begin and the major markets are already starting to sell out for this one months in advance, so really, don’t think - just go to this tour. - Adrienne Fisher
