Music

All Time Low

This gig was over three weeks ago (yes, I totally forgot to finish this post .. and yes, I’m going to pretend I delayed it intentionally), so thought it was about time I wrote about it.

I brought a standing ticket to go with my friend, Rikki, which meant we got to the arena at around 9am (my train was at 7 .. how gross), and ended up waiting over 8 hours for the doors to open.  And it was freezing I tell you.  So damn cold.  My feet were numb for ages.

But anyway, when we finally got inside it wasn’t that long to wait until the music started (and till I began to feel my toes again).

There were two support acts; apparently nowadays having more than one is the norm.  Good Charlotte, who were alright I guess, not my particular favourite, but their music was decent.  And then Against The Current who .. well, let’s just say I went home and downloaded all of their music.

They’re a pop-rock band from New York  (very similar to ‘We Are The In Crowd’ if you’ve ever heard of them) and I kinda wish I’d been able to appreciate them fully when seeing them live.  “Outsiders“, “Running With The Wild Things” and “Gravity” were a few songs that particularly stood out (and worth a listen).

And then, obviously, the main reason we were at the arena in the first place .. All Time Low.  

I vaguely knew who they were a year ago, but Rikki had mentioned that they were playing at Reading Festival and seeing as there were a few other acts I wanted to see (Panic! At The Disco, Echosmith, Simple Plan), we decided to go together.  It was such an amazing day, and I enjoyed All Time Low’s setlist so much that I’d brought their CDs and, here I was, six months later, seeing them again.

And, yes, they acted like total idiots on stage, but they did a good two hour set full of some of my all time (get it) favourite songs (setlist below).

  1. Kids In The Dark
  2. A Love Like War
  3. Dancing With A Wolf
  4. Backseat Serenade
  5. Lost in Stereo
  6. Poppin’ Champagne
  7. Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)
  8. Runaways
  9. Tidal Waves (acoustic)
  10. Bail Me Out
  11. Therapy (acoustic)
  12. Missing You (acoustic)
  13. Coffee Shop Soundtrack
  14. Don’t You Go
  15. Old Scars/Future Hearts
  16. Weightless
  17. Something’s Gotta Give
  18. Dear Maria, Count Me In

So – despite the girl who kept throwing up in the audience (and who also refused to leave the pit even though she’d been sick over several people .. thankfully not me) – the concert was an absolute blast, 10/10, whale of a time and all that.

And after driving back to Rikki’s house we stopped for an impromptu McDonalds .. at 2am .. and it was so freaking earned).

    1. Hey there, if you like them sort of bands and have Spotify, you may be a fan of my friends band. Called Blackfoot Circle, massive down on the south coast, have a listen and see what you think!
