R I L E Y started this show off with a bang. He came out on stage repping his own ‘Loss Angeles’ merchandise while performing some of his songs such as “No Limit”, “Prescriptions”, and “Let You Down”. His stage presence as an opening act was amazing, nothing short of the headliner. He came up and showed what it meant to be R I L E Y. The crowd loved it and loved him. He also returned to the stage later on in the evening to join Chase Atlantic during their song “Into It”.
Cherry Pools, consisting of Martin Broda, Talyn Prior and Sean Medeiros, took to the stage next bringing songs from their recently released EP titled “Less Religion More Sex” with them. A few of their songs performed that night consisted of songs like “Are You In Love”, “All The Way” and “Caught In The Stars”. Cherry Pools also included an incredible cover of “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson in their set which drove the crowd absolutely wild. They were high energy and connected with the crowd extremely well.
Chase Atlantic is made up of Mitchel Cave, Clinton Cave, and Christian Anthony along with long time touring members Pat Wilde and Jesse Boyle. The Chase Atlantic sound is a unique combination of genres which in turn creates a diverse atmosphere at their live shows. Previously I have only seen them on tours they weren’t headlining such as opening for Lights on the We Were Here Tour and rocking the only.fm stage during the 2018 run of Vans Warped Tour. Seeing them now on their own worldwide headlining tour was a new experience that felt familiar in all of the best ways, but new and better at the same time.
This show was nothing short of a party. A great party in fact. I’m not a stranger to seeing Chase Atlantic live and they continue to bring an insane presence to the stage. Chase Atlantic has a one of a kind presence not only on stage but also off. These guys are no stranger to performing and that’s what keeps myself and many other fans coming back for more. They brought a lot of songs from their self-titled album to the stage with them including “Okay”, “Triggered”, “The Walls” and more. Also included on their set list were some recent releases such as “YOU TOO.”, “Tidal Wave” and “Numb to the Feeling”. The upbeat and high energy feel of their songs kept the crowd on their feet and going all night.
All of these artists are wildly talented and they definitely know how to put on an incredible show. If you’re ever in need of new music to listen to, be sure to check out Chase Atlantic, Cherry Pools and R I L E Y on your preferred streaming service and try to catch them in a city near you!
