Show Review: The AP Tour
Show Review: The AP Tour

On Friday night, I headed downtown to the exquisite Club Nokia for the Los Angeles stop of the AP Tour. I went in to the show expecting to be a little old for some of the bands in terms of what my current music tastes are, but I wasn’t about to pass up an opportunity to see August Burns Red, a band that I have a lot of nostalgia for.

Just got home from this show. It was nice to finally see ABR. Awesome performance! Luckily, I was able to get in free by helping out at the venue. Some of my other friends got in free by asking This Is Hell to get them in.
