Live Coverage || All Time Low, Dashboard Confessional @ MECU Pavilion (18/8/2018)

All Time Low is currently on the "Summer Ever After Tour" in support of their 2017 album, "Last Young Renegades". This past weekend (8/18/18), All Time Low played a hometown show in Baltimore, Maryland at MECU Pavilion (formerly known as Pier Six Pavilion). The show’s lineup included All Time Low, The Band Camino and Dashboard Confessional.

I talked to several die heart All Time Low fans before the show. One girl flew from Oregon while her friend was from Indiana. They both made quite the journey just to be here for a special hometown show. The group of girls were also driving to New York City the next day to see All Time Low again!
The opening band was originally Gnash but he was unable to make it to make it to the show. Instead, The Band Camino was added to the show’s lineup. The indie group was a perfect addition to the show.
Dashboard Confessional put on a fantastic show. They played hit songs such as, "Vindicated", "Hands Down", and "Screaming Infidelities". In addition, Dashboard Confessional created new generation of fans.
Finally, the band that everyone had been patiently waiting for.. All Time Low! As the lights began to dim, the young girls screamed with excitement, after anxiously waiting for this moment to see their favorite band. Just moments later, All Time Low ran out on stage and with hesitation began playing "Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)" followed by their new song, "Everything Is Fine" and pop punk classics such as "Weightless" and "Therapy". Just before the band was about to play "Missing You", singer Alex Gaskgarth made a special speech, stating that "every single person is going through some shit so, in this room we are all family”. The song mentions heavy material and was a good icebreaker for anyone struggling with their life. The show then continued but little did the fans know what All Time Low had in store next. Just moments after the band began playing "Good Times", Dashboard Confessional vocalist (Chris Kamrada) made a guest appearance, joining All Time Low for the song which was a stellar surprise! The encore then closed out the band’s performance with "Birthday", "Lost I"n Stereo" and Dear Maria, Count Me In".  

I had fantastic time at All Time Low’s hometown show in Baltimore, MD. As I walking out the venue, there was nothing but pure joy from fans. I’m anxious to what All Time Low have planned their next tour.
