DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Unwritten Law and Ten Foot Pole in Hollywood (6/5/15)

DyingScene was thrilled to be at the first show of the new “Love Is The Law” tour featuring Unwritten Law and Ten Foot Pole. The tour kicked off in Hollywood, CA at the House of Blues on June 5th, 2015. Southern California mainstays Unwritten Law headlined this show with support from the legendary Ten Foot Pole as the Friday night crowd danced and sang along on the Sunset Strip.

Ten Foot Pole reappeared in the LA scene last December when they headlined the Cyber Tracks Christmas Show at The Roxy. It is great seeing these guys hit the stage again, and they powered through their energetic set at the HOB with fan favorites like “Hammering Out The Details” and “The Getaway.” You can always count on these guys to run around the stage, jump along with the music (which makes for some pretty great photography), and wear some interesting…shorts. With smiles on their faces, you can tell that these guys are happy to be on stage and playing for the audience. If you are planning on catching this tour, make sure to get there in time to see TFP!

Chances are, if you live in Southern California, you have seen Unwritten Law live at some point in your life. These guys are extremely hard working and play local shows regularly. It’s great seeing them put together a full tour and hopefully you will get to check them out in a city closer to you. The band, led by Scott Russo, kept the party going with the staples of their setlist, including “California Sky,” “Shoulda Known Better,” “Up All Night,” “Cailin,” and my personal favorite, “She Says.” It was a great way to spend a Friday night and a great way to kick off this tour!

Check out the full gallery from the show below!

Big news for all the Unwritten Law fans. The band has just announced details on their upcoming “Love Is The Law” tour this coming June. The tour will feature support from Ten Foot Pole. Check the dates out below.

In addition to the tour, the band will be releasing an acoustic album this fall. The album will consist of fan favorites from the band’s previous six albums. No official release date has been announced yet, so keep checking back for more details. Unwritten Law last released “Swan” in 2011.



Scott Russo and Wade Youman trash stage after Unwritten Law’s set gets cut short

According to recent reports, some bad shit happened during Unwritten Law‘s set on the final night of the Hits & Pits tour at Capitol & Amps in Perth, Australia on Sunday, May 18th.

40 minutes into the band’s set, the venue told them it was time to wrap things up because, according to Capitol booking agent Jeff Haley, “liquor licensing laws strictly prohibit any noise after midnight.” Despite this, the band continued to play and promptly had the power cut on them.

And that’s when tempers (and drums) began to fly, with founding members Scott Russo and Wade Youman smashing the venue’s backline drums and The Casualties drummer Mark Eggers’ cymbals. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below.

It’s also worth noting that the band was apparently being a bunch of dicks throughout most of the tour. One of the many people to comment on the aforementioned video of Scott and Wade smashing up drums that didn’t belong to them stated:

“UL were contracted for 45 minute sets as the subheadliner for the tour (Strung Out headlining) but at the first show in Brisbane they demanded an 80 minute set, went on stage late and went over their 80 minutes. Strung Out refused to headline anymore after that.”
