Circa Survive -- Ybor City, FL -- March 27th, 2013
Venue - Ritz Ybor
As we arrived to Ybor City I realized we still had 45 minutes to kill so we went to the McDonalds for some deliciousness right near the venue and once we finished we headed to the Ritz Ybor. Once we got there we headed around back to meet up with Colin from Circa Survive for an interview, which we ended up having to do twice because my camera man i guess forgot to press record the first time Lol, but Colin was a very cool guy, and he was nice enough to redo to the interview for us, and after taking a couple pictures with us we got our tickets and headed inside for the sold out show.

Now, Now - Pretty much no one in the entire crowd knew who they were, they reminded me of Tegan & Sara but with a similar Circa Survive sound to it, the crowd seemed to really enjoyed them and so did I for the most part, an overall good opener to the tour. - 7/10
Minus The Bear - My favorite band of the night, these guys are good ol' bluesy rock n' roll, which is far from what they sound like on record. The singer looked like Zach Galifianakis' skinner younger brother, which was slightly amusing to the crowd, it was also a little funny when the guitarist did an Irish Jig a couple times when there were no guitar parts. I'm probably the only person in the crowd who enjoyed them more than CS, but I'm very big into blues rock. Anyways, a great performance from a great band, go check them out if you haven't already. - 9/10
Circa Survive - I've never been a massive fan but I do enjoy a lot of their music, Anthony Green is such an incredible vocalist, and even more so live, his vocals are so incredibly haunting and melodic, I honestly can't think of anyone who sounds exactly like he does. The surprising part was there was a huge pit for 80% of their set, also Spencer Chamberlain from Underoath was in the crowd next to me and I was knocked into him once or twice in the pit. This was all in all an amazing lineup and a very memorable show, if you even remotely like any of these bands, go see this tour if it comes near you. - 9/10

Don't know much about Circa Survive, but they seem pretty cool.Cool fact, they played Center Stage in Atlanta last year, on the same date the band I was in played The Vinyl (which is right under Center Stage)
I know that this isn't a "metal" show, but it was extremely fun.
cool that Spencer was right in the thick of the crowd.
you need to step it up in the pictures dept.
It's a small cheap personal camera, and as i said there was surprisingly a shove pit during most of Circa Survive and so it was nearly i possible to get any pictures, I didn't want to drop it.
But I'm saving up for a nicer camera, starting to work more with interview and pictures so I need a better camera.
I can't tell if its just the pics, but does Anthony Green seem to be getting a little chubby? haha
Maybe a little lol, not that big though.
