Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in person, not even watching it on high-definition Blu-ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with this GrouponLive deal to see Vertical Horizon at The Paramount in Huntington. For $10, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Tuesday, June 19, at 8 p.m. (up to a $19 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Matt Scannell, the lead singer and songwriter of Washington DC alternative band Vertical Horizon, takes his craft very seriously. Although the seminal rockers put on a live show resembling a pep rally, behind the music lies a diehard ethos of musical exploration and lyrics borne of mature melancholia. In the late ‘90s and early 2000s, the band’s sonic pendulum of tenderness and tautness escalated them up the charts with earworms such as “Everything You Want” and “You’re a God.”
Rather than rest on their laurels and jump on the ‘90s nostalgia bandwagon, Vertical Horizon is back on the road touting its 2009 release, Burning the Days, and a new LP that is currently incubating. Incorporating its sing-along classics with deep cuts and new tracks in its live show, the band courts fans with cross-stitching harmonies, melodic strategy, and the energy of lightning bolts striking a Mountain Dew dispensary. The musical synergy takes place amid the exposed-brick walls of The Paramount's cavernous theater, where a laid-back concert vibe lets guests visit the mezzanine's Skybar without missing a single memorable riff.
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.
