After a three-year hiatus at the close of the decade, Yellowcard exploded back onto the scene in top form with 2011's When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes. Heralding the band's return, Sputnikmusic gushed that the album "bleeds with the best that Yellowcard have done thus far," singling out the band's characteristic violin solos in the single "For You and Your Denial." Now touring in support of its upcoming release, Southern Air, the group continues to draw in audiences with emotionally raw lyrics and breathily thunderous vocals that combine vulnerability with intensity like an auctioneer’s marriage proposal.
The Wonder Years offers its support to the evening's melodic pyrotechnics with explosive odes to disaffected alienation. Serving up the headbanging anthems it raised to an art on its third full-length album, Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing, the band was praised by AllMusic.com for its ability to "merge the huge sound of melodic hardcore with a strong dose of narrative depth."
We Are The In Crowd rounds out the night's acts, bringing a double dose of vocal virtuosity to The House of Blues Dallas courtesy of singers Taylor Jardine and Jordan Eckes. Beautifully meshing their pipes in such songs as "Rumor Mill," the duo complements each other's soaring range before dropping into goose-bump-summoning harmonies.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
