Andrew McMahon in the Wildnerness came through Dallas last month on their Zombies in America Tour. Andrew McMahon is one of my old favorites, so I'm always sure to catch him when he's in town! This show was originally scheduled for April, but was postponed when the band was invited to open for Billy Joel (one of Andrew's personal favorites and influences) on the same day. This show was definitely worth the wait!
Taking Back Sunday is currently on the road in promotion of their latest release, Tidal Wave! They kicked off mid-July in New York and are touring the US through August 19. Support on this summer tour is Every Time I Die, Modern Chemistry and All Get Out.
Gas Monkey Live was packed on Monday night when Taking Back Sunday took the stage, opening with the title track of Tidal Wave. They continued on to play songs from all over their catalog, including 2002′s Tell All Your Friends, 2014′s Happiness Is, and even the closing track from an album that is normally forgotten - 2009′s New Again.
Mid-set, frontman Adam Lazzara reminisced about getting into music in his childhood, before going into an acoustic cover of Green Day’s “She.”
The night ended on a high note with a two-song encore of “Better Homes and Gardens” and “MakeDamnSure.”
During the encore , "MakeDamnSure" this guy got down on one knee to ask his lady to marry him! Congrats to these two!
It's been awhile, but here is another photo blog from my Italy trip! This may have been my favorite day of the week I spent there.
My cousin and I decided we wanted to visit the gorgeous countryside of Assisi. After sprinting for what had to have been a mile to the platform for our train - just barely making it on time - we were off!
Even though Rome had endless offerings of historic sites and photographic opportunities, I knew I wanted to see a different side of Italy during my time there. We decided on Assisi, and absolutely fell in love with it!
We spent our day taking a stroll through the charming city, ending at the Basilica of San Francesco. The view of the town was absolutely stunning. Our night was complete with a sunset to send us off!
Castel Sant'Angelo is a gorgeous castle in Rome that was built in the 130s AD. I was intrigued by the castle by its exterior appearance, but had no idea what beauty was inside! I was in awe of the spectacular artwork in the castle - it was breathtaking! I also enjoyed some great panoramic views of the city from the height of the castle. Keep scrolling and enjoy your tour of Castel Sant'Angelo!
