I remember sitting in class back in high school, a long long long long long long long long time ago, (ok maybe I’m exaggerating slightly) zoning out as the teacher rambled on about who knows what, watching my girlfriend sitting next to me drawing that weird “S” thing all over her binder, and adding yet another heart to the picture of Good Charlotte guitarist Billy Martin taped to the cover. Kayla Fofonoff, if you’re reading this, I’m talking about you!

Everyone took a break from playing Pokemon Go to come check out the Back To Basics Tour as it ventured up north into Canada-land.

After choosing to relocate the show from the original venue to a smaller more intimate location, the Biltmore Cabaret was decided upon. The dark and cozy venue, despite it’s size and unassuming nature has played host to some of the biggest talent to come through Vancouver, and tonight was no different, the Biltmore was about to explode with some of the genre’s heaviest hitters.

With Silverstein, Being As An Ocean, Emarosa, Cardinals Pride, Youth Decay, & Rarity

Date: March 8, 2016
Venue: The Imperial
City: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Highlight: The overwhelming nostalgia Silverstein brought to the crowd & the nonchalant 360 degree flip Bradley Walden of Emarosa did over bassist Marcellus Wallace.

With last year’s release of their eighth studio album, I Am Alive In Everything I Touch, Silverstein hit the road for a cross Canada/US tour in support of the new album. Bringing along with them: Being As An Ocean, Emarosa, Cardinals Pride (who did not attend the Vancouver date) Youth Decay, and Rarity.
