TVD Live Shots: Coheed and Cambria, Glassjaw,
I the Mighty, and Silver Snakes, Echostage, 3/02

DC’s premier EDM venue, Echostage in the NE neighborhood of the District, opened its doors last Wednesday for an evening of progressive metal sounds, old and new, from a lineup composed of bands from both US coasts. 

Excitement in the venue was building all evening and the crowd seemed to get closer and tighter as the night progressed. As headliner Coheed and Cambria took the stage, you could literally feel the release of tension as an embrace for the band.

For the first selection of the evening, Coheed displayed its softer side performing a flawless version of “Ghost” from their 2015 release, The Color Before The Sun. A thrilling set from start to finish, musicianship is first and foremost for the band, the setlist including “Ghost,” “Blood Red Summer,” “Eraser,” “The Hard Sell,” “Peace to the Mountain,” and “You Got Spirit, Kid.”

Long Island’s Glassjaw easily delivered my favorite set of the night and proved to fans they remain very relevant. Their new material has been heavily anticipated and killed in a live setting. Glassjaw’s setlist included “Tip Your Bartender,” “My Empire,” “Jesus Glue,” “Shira,” and “Two Tabs of Mescaline.”

The San Francisco based, I the Mighty performed a solid set and is touring to promote their 2015 release, Connector, on Equal Vision Records. Silver Snakes from LA had the honor of being the evening’s opener.
