As part of their recent release of ‘Shoulders,’ Coheed and Cambria set out on their post-summer tour as they return from the pandemic lockdown. Along for this tour is The Used and CarolsDaughter. The Mecu Pavilion had lines wrapped around the building, eagerly wafting to get in!
To start the night off, Carolsdaughter. The 21-year-old alternative pop artist played her hits, ‘Trailer Trash,’ ‘please put me in a medically induced coma,’ and ‘Violent.’ By the end of her set, she had everyone standing out of their seats in awe! Carolsdaughter was excellent! Be sure to check her out!
Next up was The Used. Bert McCracken is an intense singer with lots of energy, which makes The Used a really fun band to see live. They never cease to amaze anyone who comes out to one of their shows. The Used played fan favorites such as ‘Taste of Ink’ and ‘Box Full of Sharp Objects.’ Congratulations to the couple who got engaged during their set!
- ‘Take it away’
- ‘The bird and the worm’
- ‘I caught fire’ (followed by a snippet of ‘Kiss Me’ by Sixpence None The Richer)
- ‘Blow me’
- ‘The taste of ink’
- ‘All that I’ve got’
- ‘Buried myself alive’
- ‘Blood on my hands’
- ‘Pretty handsome awkward’
- Nirvana’s ‘Smells like teen spirit’ opening
- ‘A box full of sharp objects’
Coheed and Cambria
Finally, Coheed and Cambria took the stage. The crowd was crazy as the New York natives started their set! Their production was phenomenal, to say the least! The entire band was lit up beautifully with smoke and strobe lights filling the air. As Claudio reminisced about the time they played at the Ottobar (The oldest music venue in Baltimore) two decades ago, a huge roar of applause and cheer erupted from the packed venue! We highly recommend seeing any of these bands when they come through your state, whether it be this tour or any other they do!
I’ll be honest. A lot of times, with bands who’ve been around and built a strong fanbase like we have, I think there might be a tendency, intentionally or unintentionally, to try to give the fans what they want and not take too many risks. But after making music for so long and entering a pandemic, we didn’t want limitations to the creative process. The [next] record is going to be what I hope people perceive this band to be in 2021/2022.Coheed and Cambrias via Consequence
