ROCKSTAR ENERGY PRESENTS: YOUNG RENEGADES TOUR // LIVE REVIEW

Jack Barakat, All Time Low

All Time Low just kicked off The Young Renegades tour and on day two they hit Dallas, Texas at the legendary House of Blues. The lineup was stacked with bands on the rise such as The Wrecks, Waterparks, and Night Riots.

Nick Anderson, The Wrecks

Opening up for the sold out show was indie rock band, The Wrecks. Despite feeling a bit under the weather vocalist, Nick Anderson, managed to blow the crowd away with his energetic stage performance. Although The Wrecks had their debut in 2016 their sound felt as though they had years of experience.

Awsten Knight, Waterparks

Up next was alternative pop favorites, Waterparks. With blue hair and full of sarcasm, Awsten Knight kept the crowd entertained while Geoff and Otto went into their own world as most musicians do while they’re playing. I’ve seen Waterparks a total of four times within the span of a year and each set continues to blow me away. It always feels as if I’m seeing them for the first time again and again.

Night Riots stepped onto the stage and although I’ve never seen them live, I’ve always heard good things about their set. As a photographer, I was unimpressed with the low lighting, but soon understood the purpose for it as a glow in the dark percussion performance broke out mid set.

It was finally time for All Time Low to hit the stage. The crowd chanted, the lights blasted, and suddenly Jack, Alex, Zack, and Rian were on the stage playing Last Young Renegade. All Time Low fans showed their dedication by even holding up signs saying “You were the best thing that ever happened to us.”

I was surprised to see fans were even pulled on stage for a dance party during Time Bomb. Throughout All Time Low’s success they still manage to give a sold out show that local feel by pushing boundaries and ignoring the barricade. Playing a full set of 21 songs, including an encore, All Time Low fans kept the party going all night long.
