The first band to go on tonight was WSTR (Wurster), Had Crowd surfers started pouring in the moment they started playing. I've previously heard of WSTR through a meme, a specific meme calling them out about copying a previous Neck Deep album cover; It's pretty funny. This is their (WSTR) first US tour. Thank you Neck deep for taking them along with you. They are a new addition to many of my playlists.

The second band out was Stand Atlantic. I didn't realize they had a female lead. Which really shocked me! I'm actually really glad that they do. It's always exciting to see more Women in the industry!

The crowd was extremely rowdy for Stand Atlantic. I was very surprised being they're not a super popular band in this state (NJ). I'm very excited to see how far they go as a band & people.

Trophy Eyes was the final band before Neck Deep. The band I Genuinely was looking forward to the most. Trophy Eyes always seems to have such a pure genuine stage presence. John Floreani has an outstanding personality and you can see how much he cares for their music to be shared. Their Crowd was probably the best so far, I had friends travel from several states just for them (trophy eyes). Trophy Eyes have such a strong support here. I hope to see them headline again soon.

Finally, Neck Deep. Amazing, their stage presence is impeccable. The first time I saw neck deep was Warped tour 2017. The moment they got on to the main stage, I immediately knew they'd go farther and get bigger. Even though, already so much success with Peace and the Panic coming out months following warped wrapping. They already had such a HUGE following in the US.


As I walk around to get back to my friends all I could see is everyone standing, swaying, crowd surfing, singing every lyric to every song. They don't just have fans. That's a family rooting for you, proud of who you are and what you've put out into the world.

I've watched this band grow over the last year, between warped tour, the first leg of the peace and the Panic tour; as well this second leg. Their stage has gotten so much better, They have gotten more professional, Their live shows are just truly a wonder. I'm so glad to have be able to attend this show.

All of the bands tonight were absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for the opportunity to have photographed and written this. Neck Deep, Trophy Eyes, Stand Atlantic and WSTR have and will always remind me that it's Ok, to not be OK. Thank you to Hope for the Day as well.
