What’s a better way to celebrate the sudden cold weather and end of the semester than catching the Descensus Tour featuring Circa Survive, Title Fight, and Pianos Become the Teeth at Revolution Live?
Revolution Live had lines of eager, excited fans around the will call window and parking lot. Fans upset over the Sold Out sign. This was going to be a mind-blowing show. Making my way to the line, I could hear everyone talking about previous sets of each band on the bill, which only fueled my excitement. Once inside Revolution, I made my way through the crowd for a solid view for Pianos Become the Teeth.
Pianos Become the Teeth took the stage, kicking off the night of excellent music. Having caught them at Fest 11, I was glad to catch them on this leg of the tour. The band’s short setlist was filled with music throughout their catalog from the latest release, “Keep You,” back to their first LP, “Old Pride.” They were a great band to kick off the Descensus Tour in Fort Lauderdale.
Title Fight came out swinging with “Secret Society.” Between the bands high energy, fast punk rock and the crowd’s love, their set was filled with great vibrations. Title Fight’s set was filled with hits including “27” to “Symmetry.” The set came to a close and I made my way to a better spot to catch the rest of the show.
A quick set change and sound check before the band of the night took stage. Circa Survive kicked their set off the right way with “Semi-Constructive Criticism,” which had power and passion behind every note. Circa Survive’s set included art-focused visual projections that matched the music. Their set was filled with favorite songs from older hits, from “In Fear and Faith” and “The Greatest Lie” to newer songs like “Schema” and “Sharp Practice.” It was the perfect blend of songs from throughout their 10 years.
The band came back out for an encore to an image of a corgi as the band jammed out to a drum track. Anthony Green free styled a song about eggs as the rest of the band cracked up and the crowd cheered. Following the random jam session, the band ended their set with “Get Out.” The crowd erupted and helped the band close the set off with the same energy they had throughout the set.
