  • Underoath

    Underoath

    The recently reunited Underoath wrapped up their sold-out Rebirth Tour in Orlando and even a skeptical Jen Cray was convinced of their power.

  • Thrice

    Thrice

    Thrice takes a victory lap before a planned hiatus, to say “goodbye” to 14 years worth of fans on their Farewell Tour. Jen Cray enjoys their bittersweet (final?) Orlando date.

  • Circa Survive

    Circa Survive

    Circa Survive and Dredg put on a pair of performances at Orlando’s House of Blues that should officially release them from their previous emo trappings. Jen Cray reports.

    Appeal to Reason (DGC/Interscope). Review by Jen Cray.

  • Rise Against

    Rise Against

    Jen Cray is thoroughly rocked by a triple bill of Rise Against, Thrice, and Alkaline Trio. All killer, no filler? The point can be argued…

    Thrice

    With the second half of their ambitious conceptual double album finally in the hands of fans, Thrice continues its ascension into greatness. The show they put on in Orlando was enough to secure their place in Jen Cray‘s heart for life.

    Brand New

    The two-night stint of Brand New and Thrice at Orlando’s House of Blues sold out days in advance. Jen Cray managed to get inside on the closing night.

  • Chuck Ragan

    Chuck Ragan

    A fast departure from Brand New’s show at the House of Blues brought me to the much more laid back vibe at The Social for the Chuck Ragan gig. The Hot Water Music frontman was not the only famous frontman who decided to leave his band at home and go it alone for an acoustic evening. Jen Cray was in for a quadruple bill of talent!
