Sunday evening, the winter Ones To Watch tour came through Cleveland. Headlining the show were acts, Vinyl Theatre and Finish Ticket with supporting act, Cemetery Sun.
Sacramento-based band, Cemetery Sun, opened the show with an energetic, power-packed set. They had the crowd bouncing and participating from the first song. The highlight of their set was the performance of their single “Wish It Was Love,” with its great hooks and appealing vocals. Their track “Anxiety” was also quite enjoyable. Keep an eye out for their upcoming record and be sure to check out their recent music videos on their site below.
Finish Ticket was up next with their dynamic lighting and driving percussion. About halfway through the set, they played an energetic cover of “When You Were Young” by the Killers. The highlight of their set was the performance of their track “Pockets,” which is about the band reaching beyond San Francisco. Their set concluded with “Bring The Rain.” Be sure to check out their 2015 EP, When Night Becomes Day.
Finally, Vinyl Theatre performed their sweaty, enthusiastic set. They opened with the performance of their track, “If You Say So” followed by “Stay.” Later on, the band played a amusing cover of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” which lead into their own track “Tokyo.”
One of my favorite tracks of the night was the old song added to the setlist which the band dedicated to friends. They preceded the track by thanking fans for sticking by them during their recent lineup alteration. Another highlight from the night was the performance of fan favorite, “Breaking Up My Bones.”
Vinyl Theatre also announced that they are currently working on a new record. They then shared a new track featuring Keegan’s crisp vocals and a fresh hook. You can learn a little more about the band from our 2014 interview with drummer Nick here. Be sure to keep an eye out for the upcoming record!
