To Die By Your Side: The Music That Friends Share

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 29, 2014

image

Friend of the site Dan Bogosian wrote a really incredible and must-read piece for Consequence Of Sound titled To Die By Your Side: The Music That Friends Share. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but it just hits on something intangible in music and the power of it when it’s shared in the right way, and that’s a pretty hard thing to do. Read the full thing here and just a bit of it that won’t make much sense if you don’t read the rest below after the jump.

Summer And The Warped Tour: All The Bands You Need to See

by Zack Zarrillo - Jun 3, 2014

image

It’s that special time of year; Christmas Warped Tour is almost here. You know what that means, right? It means that we’re all about to get really sweaty on pavement and dirt, but it’s worth it, isn’t it? Of course it is.

Warped Tour kicks off next week, and the PropertyOfZack has put together Festival Watch feature of bands you need to see this summer. We’ll be having tons of pre-Warped coverage over the next 10 or so days, so be sure to keep up with us. Reblog and let us know who we need to see at Warped as well!

Warped Tour Lineup, Routing, And Stage Breakdown 

image

Four Year Strong
If you’ve been reading the site lately, you may have noticed that I’m incredibly excited about Four Year Strong’s return to the limelight. I saw the band play 11 songs (10 of which were “hits”) on Bayside’s recent headlining tour, and I was thrilled. I felt like I had time travelled back to 2011 and was in the Easycore Zone. However, it also felt like 2014. I truly believe Four Year Strong are back. Go Down In History. - Zack Zarrillo

Every Time I Die 
This band just can’t quit, and thank god they don’t. Year after year, they slay the music community with amazing tours and kick-ass Southern metal records, and every few years they grace Warped with their presence.

I hope they have a main stage spot. If they don’t, I need to have a sit down with Kevin Lyman. The band is so well-versed in their performance that their stage game is unbeatable. Every Time I Die likes to party with the best of them, and their live show proves it. Even if you have a deep-rooted hate for metal, the charisma of Keith and Jordan Buckley and the guys will draw you in and warm your little emo heart. - Caitlin DeWeese

Falling In Reverse
When you go to Warped Tour, you’d be foolish to not watch bands you’d never pay to see (unless they’re playing the same time as another band you actually want to see). This summer’s choice should be Falling In Reverse, because the band is literal boys with POZ, and Ronnie Radke will welcome you into the family. With open arms. - Zack Zarrillo

Yellowcard
If you told me a few years ago that, in today’s scene, Yellowcard would be back on top of its game and commanding the main stage at Warped, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. Things looked bleak for the band in early 2010 after more than two years on an indefinite hiatus. But it’s 2014, and here we are gearing up for another Vans Warped Tour – and Yellowcard’s second main stage appearance in three summers.

POZ Groezrock Preview: Our Must See Bands And Artists (Day One)

by Zack Zarrillo - Apr 30, 2014

image

Groezrock kicks off this weekend, and PropertyOfZack’s Zac Lomas will be on-location in Europe for one of the best festivals in 2014. Just in case you haven’t put together your schedule, we thought it’d be a great idea to put together a list of POZ’s Must See Bands And Artists that will be gracing the stage this weekend at Groezrock. Reblog and let us know who we need to see while we’re at the first day of the festival this weekend as well!

image

NOFX
The Los Angeles skate punk legends rarely make it into the multitude of posts on PropertyOfZack, but when May 2nd rolls around and NoFX perform their seminal album Punk in Drublic in full at Groezrock it’s going to be hard to ignore the legacy that these four joking clowns have created.  Whether you breathe old school punk or are coming to Groezrock for pop-punk all stars like The Wonder Years, it would be a huge mistake not to catch NoFX close out day one with what may be one of the best punk albums of the past twenty years.  And if you’re not into the music then at least enjoy the myriad amounts of shoes, drinks, and possibly rotten fruit that will inevitably be thrown at lead singer Fat Mike, because, after all, that’s the only proper behavior at a NoFX show.

image

Descendents
Plain and simple, there wouldn’t be pop-punk without the Descendents and if that’s not enough to get you to catch their set at Groezrock then I suggest you look up some videos of Descendents shows in the 80s to get a real understanding of the passion these guys bring to every live performance.  Not only is Milo Aukerman still one of the most charismatic frontmen in the history of punk, but his cohorts are also some of the tightest musicians in the world, with Karl Alvarez, Stephen Egerton, and Bill Stevenson all (No, ALL!) capable of hitting every note with a precision not often seen in the realm of punk.  Catch these guys while you can and join the lucky group of people who can proudly boast about the religious experience that is the Descendents live in concert.

image

The Menzingers
Not only have these Pennsylvania natives just released their fourth studio album Rented World, but they’ve also been viciously cutting across every roadway the world has to offer in the past year bringing their boisterous performances to as many people as possible.  I’m never one for using superlatives since absolutes do seem to be impossible in such an imperfect world, but I’m willing to go out on a limb and say that The Menzingers put on the best live show out of any band I’ve seen in the past year.  There is something pure and unadulterated about the raw power and passion that the Philly-via-Scranton quartet injects into every set, something that makes you feel like you’re being told the truth and that, my friends, is a beautiful thing.

March Sadness 2014: No One Wins, Everyone Loses

by Zack Zarrillo - Mar 31, 2014

image

Sometimes, a few sad assholes ruin all the fun for everyone else. 

TeamPOZ worked long and hard on March Sadness 2014, and the vote-in through Forlorn 4 rounds were a true pleasure to run. The voting for the Final 2, a challenge between emo legends Saves The Day and revivalists The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, was neck-and-neck until Sunday evening.

Sometime around 5 p.m. EST, one or several assholes decided to run a script to auto-vote for Saves The Day, which was clear and deliberate. After backroom conferences, where everything was at stake, TeamPOZ decided it would be best to not reward Saves The Day due to voters cheating, but to also not crown The World Is as this year’s Kings Of Emo, due to a fair fight being thrown. 

There is no winner of March Sadness 2014.

We’ve used Google Forms over the past two years of voting so we can get around requiring voters to give us their email addresses and to strictly focus on the fun of the sad bracket, but it looks like we’ll have to reevaluate our methods for 2015. 

So long, emos. Until next year.
