What a good idea for a tour. Take a bunch of popular frontmen and put them in a venue together and see what happens. I read that a lot of their performances are improvised, as in they decide what to play backstage and who will join them for the song. I think it’s such a great idea. All of these musicians are SO talented, having toured in their respective bands for many years now. They all know how to put on a seriously good live show and will definitely do well in such an intimate venue.

The artist I am most interested in seeing is Ace Enders. Having recently announced that The Early November were reuniting and recording a new album it will be interesting to see what he plays. He has released countless albums besides the ones recorded with The Early November so it will be interesting to see if he just sticks to his solo stuff and leaves The Early November’s songs for later this year. Anyways, this show will totally be worth checking out. Go to it.

About the Author

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.
