Review: Panic! at The Disco proves to age like a fine wine in LC show

July 30, 2014
Panic! at the Disco. Live. It was my 8th grade dream coming true. But before that, Walk the Moon made my junior year of high school dream come true. Before that, Magic Man made my freshman year of college dream come true. The truth is, any of the three bands playing at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Tuesday night could have headlined and done exceptionally well, but instead they were put together on one bill, for what was one of the best line ups I’ve ever seen. Waiting in line, some friends and I were trying to guess which band people were there to see. The hipsters were there for… Read more

Review: Neon Trees crowd surfs and sings its way to connect with crowd

July 2, 2014
When the Utah-based, pop-rock band Neon Trees took the stage in Columbus, the crowd was ready to go. In a 20-song, 1 ½ hour set (give or take on both quantities) Monday night at Newport Music Hall, Neon Trees played off the energy of the crowd.

When Neon Trees took the stage, all of the lights in the venue dimmed. Spotlights then shone on a white cloth that was draped in front of the stage. Neon Trees played half of its first song,… Read more
