The Front Bottoms, Basement Sell Out Starland Ballroom

When The Front Bottoms and Basement announced their tour together it seemed to be a dream come true for most people.

Both bands have different sounds (and different fanbases, for that matter) but they work so well together, and it showed when they played to a sold-out Starland Ballroom on Saturday.

Basement opened around 9, and brought the energy immediately. Seeing Basement is like nothing else, it’s clear that they have a very special bond and it radiates to the audience, they’re just having fun. Seeing vocalist Andrew Fisher smile every time someone crowd surfed, or a mosh pit got started was contagious. They are a band that truly appreciates being to play every night.  They played a good mix of classics like “Bad Apple” and “Pine” and threw in some hits from their most recent album, Promise Everything including the title track and “Aquasun”.

New Jersey’s own The Front Bottoms took the stage shortly after and were met with the crowd’s screams, including their high school friends and family, yelling “JERSEY!” over and over. The Front Bottoms are no stranger to sold out crowds, their fame has been on the rise over the past few years and they just keep getting bigger. With that comes screens on the stage playing their old music videos. Frontman, Brian Sella had “just come from his cousin’s wedding,”  so he looked like he was about to lead a business meeting, which is funny because one of the first songs they opened with was “Skeleton” off their second album Talon Of The Hawk is rumored to be about weed.

All together The Front Bottoms played for over an hour, still with the same energy they had as when they first started out. If you missed out on this show have no fear! The tour just started and is making stops in New York City and Philly.
