Title Fight -- Lawrence, KS -- January 30th, 2013
 
Title Fight was, by far, the craziest crowd experience I've ever been a part of at a show. More so than Ceremony and Origin combined. I know people always say stuff about how as soon as the band starts, people go crazy? That literally was what happened here. As soon as the band started the intro to "Numb, But I Still Feel It," the number of stage-divers was in the teens by the time the actual song started. It kept up all night long with tons of divers, moshing and surfers. The set contained mostly songs from their last album "Floral Green," but I'm super okay with that. Maybe the hugest response of the night came from "Secret Society." Title Fight is, like all good punk music, extremely bass driven and the sound and mixing was loud but still super clear. When they kicked it into overdrive like with "You Can't Say Kingston Doesn't Love You" and "Symmetry," the D-Beat drums came through and only facilitated more and more stage dives. It seemed like everyone took one last launch off the stage during the closing number "27" and although they ended after that, people stuck around wanting more. Short and sweet, just as it should be. One of the best concert experiences ever.

Opening for Title Fight was KC's Clairaudients. They're one of the more interesting local bands - their sound is very easy to take in but pretty hard to pin down exactly just what kind of music they are. There's elements of post-hardcore, blues, noise rock, shoegaze, melodic hardcore, and more. They blend this all together to switch seamlessly from rocking out to chillaxing in, and they do it all brilliantly. Really looking forward to seeing them again.

The first band to play was Sovereign States. They're the band that plays the cover show at a bar in town every Monday. Their original songs weren't so bad! In the pop punk/melodic hardcore vein, it was pretty good. When they tried to do other stuff, it kinda hurt a bit, but that might be because their vocalist was coming down off a cold. Huge props for covering Saves The Day's "At Your Funeral." Any band who does that gets an automatic pass from me!

Title Fight: 9.5/10
Clairaudients: 8.5/10
Sovereign States: 7.5/10

I want to see Title Fight at a venue with no barrier where people can dive.

That's the ONLY way Title Fight should be seen. Seriously, there's at least two people stage diving at all times during their shows. It's awesome.

The only people who will ever know if I stage dive or not will only be those who go to shows with me. :cool:

It would've been a lot easier to say "no."

Really bummed I missed them at Reggie's last October. They sound like they'd be great in a small venue. Still glad I saw them at Warped last year though. The pit was fucking insane for them. All the hardcore dudes came out.

So since you were the oldest one there, did you have to drive all of the kids back to their parents house since it was a school night?

The youngin's packed the venue and were full of energy all night while the old fogies like you stood in the back complaining about how bad their backs hurt!

Don't forget that I also told them to stay off my lawn & to stop blasting that Rock & Roll music.

This describes every show at Chain Reaction :lol: Even when I saw Touche they started with condolences and peeps went berserk. Good review and nice set, though lack of Memorial Field is odd.

Title Fight is always so much fun live, pictures looked like it was held in a super cool venue, glad your first time seeing them ruled so much!

This is actually my second time! I saw them at the same venue three years ago. Didn't know who they were, but I saw at the last second that my friends band was opening! It was a definite surprise. :D
