The opening act Zechs Marquise kicked off the show by playing a very experimental and progressive style rock set. This set showed considerably more structure than their first album and left the crowd excited for their upcoming release in late September.

Maps & Atlases took the stage next wowing the crowd with ultra-intricate tap guitar in obscure poly-rhythms living up to their “math rock” genre classification.

The Rx Bandits closed the show by playing a solid set ranging from reggae to punk and even encored with a tribute to Amy Winehouse.  Toward the end of their set there was not a single person in the room standing still and the good vibes and high energy could be felt by every last person in the room.

Although it was marketed as the last tour for the RX Bandits, lead singer Matt Embree hinted at being back soon to support his past and upcoming solo releases.

Here’s my three favorites songs I heard at the show.

Maps & Atlases – Every Place is a House


Rx Bandits – My Lonesome Only Friend


Rx Bandits – Apparition
