Seeing these songs played live again made my day.

This crowd blows. Do they not realize that As Cities Burn is playing for them?

Ralieghpalooza was the most awkward thing ever -- took a 9 hour bus to the show from NYC, no more then 50 people at the festival, huge facility, an awkward wrestling rink with the most awkward wrestlers, and a half-pipe -- I never heard As Cities Burns until this show and they killed it, absolutely loved every bit of it and they won me as a fan, annoyed I did not know them before the show...aside from this being a very awkward show, their were 2 stages, the hardcore and the rock stage, the "rock stage" was headlined by The Ready Set, supported by Forever the Sickest Kids, Every Avenue and We are The In Crowd -- stage had was def. a misnomer --- anyway, the lack of people wasnt entirely the problem to this crowd not feeling it, the bigger problem was that the fans at the show were their for, ya know, rock bands like WATIC and FTSK; how could you expect them to like a band like As Cities Burn?

YES. They played New Sun. Probably my favorite ACB song.

I agree with most of what you said here. My friend and I were really disappointed in the turn out. Although we only drove half an hour ( from Chapel Hill) I can't imagine traveling 9 hours for that

Yeah, this isn't an exaggeration. Including all the bands and people working the event their may have been 500 people there. They did a terrible job promoting it and the tickets were overpriced at $50 considering a number of the band's will be on Warped Tour or other tour's similar for a lower price. As Cities Burn was the only reason I went, you can sort of see me at times in the lower corner of this video, but my friend and I were singing along as well as the guys in Oceana, Ocean Is Theory (both of who put on fantastic shows but likewise nobody was around to see) and like 3 other people. The performance was phenomenal, well worth the price of the entire festival, it's just a shame no one else was there to enjoy it.

There's full sets from most, if not all of the performances there, including The Early November's, on youtube as well.
