Almost Dawn is Back!!

Hey all!

Alternative Rock Concert Almost DawnWe’ve been absent from the music scene for a while but just played a show Saturday in Huntington Beach for MADD Roller Derby… and lemme tell you those girls can hit! They were slide tackling… in roller skates! Pretty intense stuff if you ask me! They were super entertaining and great for helping out an amazing charity like MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).  We played our normal set consisting of: 27 Dresses, Cinderella, Cry Out, Leaving, Fallen Asleep, Blameless, and a cover of Dramarama’s “Anything Anything.”  The cover was a big crowd pleaser so come out to our next show (hopefully in this month of June) and check us out!

On the song creating side of things… we’re looking to finish our new song and title it this Thursday!! Be prepared for it at our next show! Anddd… since everyone seems to loooove our cover of Dramarama, we’re gonna work on 3 new covers this week and hopefully another new one each week! We’re trying to give the people (you) what they want so give us any suggestions on what covers you would like to hear!!

Here are a few photo highlights from the show:

Featured Band

I’ve been listening to an up and coming duo called Megan and Liz. Megan and Liz

They are fraternal twins and have amazing voices and harmonize well together!  Two of my favorite covers are of the songs “Stereo Hearts” by Gym Class Heroes and “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato.  All of their covers and originals are free to listen to on youtube.  They just recently came out with a new EP titled This Time that contains 6 of their previously released singles.  They also have a beauty station on youtube to help girls become more confident everywhere.  They’re into poppy feel good songs and bank a lot on the catchiness of their songs.  You can tell the resemblance between their tunes and their idol Taylor Swift.

One Direction

Yes, I know I am entirely too old to be in love with these teenie boppers butttt….I’m sure you’ve heard their song “What Makes You Beautiful”??? You haven’t?? Where have you been?  Okay I know they are from Britain… but that really is no excuse.. They’re like a rejuvenation of the wholesome boy bands of the 90s… take a look!  I can’t help but be a fan of music-type groups who resemble the ones I grew up with!!!

So maybe the haircuts are a little different and the boys in the top picture have a few years on the teens in the bottom picture, but all I see is boy band goodness!

Shelley Visits The Maine

Hey AD Fans,

I know the posts have been lacking but I promise we are still making music. I managed to go to The Maine concert at the Anaheim House of Blues, in Cali of course, They were amazing to say the least. The crowd sang every single lyric of every single one of their songs (minus the new song they debuted their and the cover). It was a very upbeat environment filled with tons of dedicated fans. I saw them perform about a year ago and they have gotten a lot more popular since then. The place was packed. But what did I expect with two powerhouses such as The Maine and Augustana.

John O’Callaghan of The Maine was as interactive as ever with the crowd, and onlookers did not hesitate to throw things on stage for him and the other members. A lucky girl in the crowd even got to finish singing the lyrics to one of their songs! The Maine seemed pretty stoked with the reactions from the crowd, what with the entire ground level jumping and fist pumping through several songs (the upper levels were pretty interactive as well). They kept repeating how awesome that night was and how amazing the crowd was. I’d say all the attendees rocked it! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and hope that I see some of you guys at the next show! Check ’em out, you won’t be disappointed 😉
