• Warped Tour 2010

    Warped Tour 2010

    The lineup isn’t as important as the experience when it comes to the Van’s Warped Tour. Jen Cray smeared on some sunblock and took in the annual summertime tradition when the traveling circus hit Orlando.

    The Reveling

    3D Radio. Review by Jen Cray.

  • Alkaline Trio

    Alkaline Trio

    Alkaline Trio can always be counted on to bring the same consistent formula of pop punk goodness to every show. Jen Cray, alongside a packed House of Blues audience in Orlando, contemplated whether or not their consistency is predictable, or comforting.

    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…

  • The Loved Ones

    The Loved Ones

    The Loved Ones had no idea they had so many fans in Orlando. Jen Cray was happy to find that she wasn’t the only adult in town who has a soft spot for melodic punk.

  • Broadway Calls

    Broadway Calls

    There’s something so pure about a bill of up-and-coming bands playing a tiny bar with no stage. Such was the locale of Broadway Calls’ Orlando stop. Jen Cray relished in the simplicity of a d.i.y. punk show.
