DS Staff Picks- Lia Davis Top 10 Albums of 2017

Well, another 2017 has come to a close my friends and I can say with full confidence that while it has been a banger, I will be glad to send it off with a mandatory, awkward, New Years Eve Party. And by party, I really mean lounging around in my pajamas, eating mac n cheese, and watching movies by myself– we are all different y’all. Having joined the DS team back in April, this year has been a wild ride full of music journalism, writing, editing, and re-editing again. My life has been full of change (good and bad), new beginnings, and unfortunate endings but I think we can all agree that knocking back a couple together and gearing up for 2018 with anticipation for what’s to come is the best way to close out this shit show. Check out what my top ten albums of 2017 were below, pre or post party– your call.

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Musink Fest 2017 – Day Two (Costa Mesa, CA 3/18)

Travis Barker with Goldfinger

In sharp contrast to Day One’s lineup, Day Two of the SoCal tattoo convention and music festival saw an influx of emo fans who came in droves to see post-hardcore acts like The Used, Story of the Year, Glassjaw and Hell or Highwater. The drunk, overweight, geezer punks that had filled the fairgrounds the prior afternoon were now replaced with young, well coifed, (better smelling) punks of all sorts. Also included in the ‘Emo Day’ lineup was veteran ska punks Goldfinger who definitely helped to cut the angst a little. Check out all of this and more as Anarchopunk continues his coverage of Musink Fest 2017, below!

Despite having just announced a massive North American tour in which they will be playing their first two albums in their entirety, The Used have officially parted ways with longtime guitarist Quinn Allman and replaced him with Saosin guitarist Justin Shekoski. Allman took a hiatus from touring with the band earlier this year and now it seems as if his absence will be permanent. Here’s a statement from the band:

Nothing can ever change, or detract from the magic of the relationships that helped create the music that is The Used. For these beautiful memories, we will be forever grateful. As a result of mutual understanding, Quinn will not be returning to the band and Justin Shekoski will be taking his place. The journey so far has been amazing and we continue to feel very positive about what lies ahead in the future. As always, can’t wait to see you on the road! 

Love, The Used”

Show Review: The Used, Taking Back Sunday and Frank Iero and the Cellabration live at Stage AE Pittsburgh 9-10-14

Pittsburgh’s a pretty cool fucking town, and I hadn’t been to the Land of Three Rivers in a couple of decades, so why not grab my bestie and head out in the middle of the workweek to cover a show featuring a near-perfect post-hardcore line-up with a side order of punk?

Once upon a time, a lineup like this would’ve been a sea of sailing bodies, but surfing was kept to a minimum here as the complexion of the crowd has shifted to include a sizable dose of unrowdy young ladies. Stage AE is a theater-esque establishment with an unusually high stage set far enough apart from the barricade in order to discourage stagediving (although security informed me that the most determined of dudes still try).

Frank Iero, touring on the release of his first (and very awesome) solo effort, “Stomachaches,” put together an outfit that he dubbed “The Cellabration,” consisting of former LeATHERMØUTH and current Low Road guitarist Rob Hughes (on bass for this project,) Science guitarist Evan Nestor and independent artist (now drummer) Matt Olsson for touring purposes. The set is energetic and dark, with three-part harmonies filling the arena, dual guitars (Iero and Nestor) and some really fun bass licks from the ever-talented Hughes. Olsson is the perfect backbone: fun to watch on drums, with a perpetual smile upon his face reminiscent of Taylor Hawkins. This album is definitely worth a listen. Favorite track: “All I Want Is You.”

Since I last caught them on tour, during their “Louder Now” days, Taking Back Sunday has endured several lineup changes (current members include vocalist and former bassist Adam Lazzarra, founding member and guitarist Eddie Reyes, original guitarist and keyboardist John Nolan, and bassist after Lazzarra, Shaun Cooper). They’ve also released three more albums, “New Again,” Self-Titled and the newly minted “Happiness Is.” Although Lazzarra no longer dangles from light fixtures as he did in the first half of the band’s career, he hasn’t lost his charisma. The band seemed settled as they ran through a string of sing-along hits such as “MakeDamnSure,””Decades Under The Influence” and “What’s It Feel Like To Be A Ghost” as well as brand new cuts like “Better Homes and Gardens,” all met with equal enthusiasm by the sweaty crowd.

The headliners of the evening, The Used, also showcasing a brand new release, “Imaginary Enemy,” a surprisingly strong anti-war statement by the stable outfit consisting of vocalist Bert McCracken, guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jepha Howard and drummer Dan Whitesides, hit the stage with a fury, inciting the crowd to circle pit, belting through one beloved tune after another, and beginning their encore with the perpetual crowd favorite, the sentimental “On My Own.” You can scream yourself hoarse at a show like this, and most of us did. After an explosive opening with the pounding “Take It Away,” grinning at the crowd as they sang every note for them during tracks like “All That I’ve Got,” and “The Taste of Ink,” and rounding out the set with the hard-hitting “Pretty Handsome Awkward,” The Used definitely owned the arena, as they usually do.

This is an extremely fun tour that you should definitely hop onto if it’s passing through the city. Check out upcoming tour dates here. And check out our photos from the show below.
