Evans Blue Bring ‘Graveyard of Empires’ to the Empire State
There was a whole lot of energy packed into the Studio at Webster Hall on Wednesday, July 25, where rock band Evans Blue lit up the stage along with State Your Cause, Jolly, Ascending From Ashes and the Latanza Heist.
Evans Blue played a pretty packed show for a Wednesday night, as they performed a wide variety of tracks such as their new tunes ‘Halo’ and ‘This Time It’s Different’ off of their latest disc ‘Graveyard of Empires’ to older favorites like ‘Erase My Scars’ and ‘Cold (But I’m Still Here).’ Frontman Dan Chandler’s vocals were on point and the band’s chemistry onstage was a pleasure to see in such an intimate setting.
Direct support State Your Cause gave one helluva performance, as well, as frontman James Scott’s sweat and vigor filled the entire venue. The band even performed a cover of Don Henley’s ‘The Boys of Summer.’ State Your Cause are a band with lots of force onstage and will be headlining shows soon enough.
The band Jolly didn’t seem that jovial while performing their set, but the crowd seemed to dig the New Jersians of Ascending From Ashes, who deliverd a solid rendition of Linkin Park’s ‘One Step Closer.’
Fellow New Jersey band the Latanza Heist kicked off the night with a performance that was too big for the tiny stage of Webster Hall.
