Warped Tour 2012 (Irvine)

Hey Sunshine(s)!

We’ve been gone for a while, quite busy actually, but I wanted to update you on the band (obvi) and other events, as you can tell from the title. I attended the Warped tour this summer in Irvine and I loved the line up! I went to the San Diego location last year just to see Paramore, but there were a lot of screamo bands (which I’m not a big fan of or my band would be a screamo band… just sayin). Anyway, I went to Warped Tour and due to traffic I ended up missing Mayday Parade and All Time Low 🙁 big bummer I know…. but I did get to see these guys:

One of the biggest crowds (besides New Found Glory and Taking Back Sunday)! People lovin’ We the Kings!

Hadn’t heard them till Warped Tour but lemme tell you those Brits are amazing!!!

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:

Memorial Day Weekend!!

Hey all!

I’m sure everyone is as excited as I am to have a 3 day weekend!! But let’s not forget what the real purpose of this weekend is.  Take a moment to honor the troops/veterans who fought for our lives and the good of the nation! It takes a brave soldier to go into battle to protect the lives of millions of people back home.  Their sacrifices will not be forgetten <3

On a lighter note, our band is in full swing with Chino as our Almost Dawn drummer! Don’t forget about our concert for MADD on the second of June! There will also be roller derby to enjoy and I heard that two of the girls from the Roller Derby movie are going to be making an appearance! (they’re professional rolly derby girls!!) So come out and enjoy some tunes while watching some awesome competition on the rink!  Our band is preparing a new cover too so don’t miss out!!

If  you haven’t noticed, I’ve been highlighting bands I like, some well known, some not.  I am going to continue doing that unless you guys object? Lemme know what you think? Sooo… without further ado..

Highlight band of the weekend: The Lost Colors

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 😉

Almost Dawn Show at Taj Mahal

Almost Dawn Rock Band at Anaheim California gig
We wrapped up another great show last night in Anaheim.  The crowd was fun and I think it is safe to say that this is was our best show this far. The night concluded with a quick raffle where we gave out 5 free Almost Dawn T-shirts and 20 free demos.

This Thursday we will be jamming with a new drummer. We hope to be adding a new member soon.
