The Wake Up & Be Awesome Tour
The Summer Set, Go Radio, and We Are The In Crowd
By: Jason Bullinger
The "Wake Up &
Be Awesome" Tour featuring The Summer Set, We Are The In Crowd, and Go
Radio made their stop at the Marquis Theatre in Denver Saturday night
and did not leave the sold out crowd disappointed.
rockers Go Radio were first up having just released their sophomore
album last fall Close the Distance warmed the crowd up with a tight eight song set
that included standouts as "Collide", "Goodnight Moon" and "I Won't
Lie." One highlight included vocalist Jason Lancaster getting behind the
keyboards and belting out the crowd favorite "Go To Hell". With Go Radio
there is little in between song fan interaction but they always have the
fans attention letting their talents speak loudly for them to enjoy.
New York based
pop punk We Are the In Crowd were up next continuing the energy and
played a entertaining set. The chemistry between Tay Jardine and Jordan
Eckes is obvious and dominates the show in a good way. They each take
the lead and then harmonize together during parts of the songs. For
being petite, Jardine can hold her own live never standing in one spot
and often times leaning into the crowd letting out a scream. Highlights
in the set included "See You Around", fan favorite "Kiss Me Again" and
set closer "Rumor Mill".
Summer Set welcomed to the stage by loud screams of the crowd bursted
into the opening song "F**K U Over. This uptempo rocker set the tone for
a set of high energy anthem's performed tightly all night long. Their
highly anticipated album Legendary is due on April 15 (Fearless Records) and while most while
most bands just touch on a song or two The Summer Set are in full force
incorporating a number of these new songs into their set for their fans
to enjoy. Songs such as "Maybe Tonight", "Boomerang", and "Legendary"
got a huge response from the crowd as well as the older ones. Brain
Dales is a solid frontman and continued to keep the crowd's energy high
as he often would lean into the first few rows garnishing the cheers of
the fans. Other Highlights from the set included the cover "Locked Out
of Heaven" from Buno Mars and the encore huge hit "Chelsea".
