Crisis A.D and All That Remains 5/23 Portland, ME

Written By: Shelby Whitehouse

On May 23rd I went out to Port City Music Hall to do some photo for Cover One Eye, Crisis A.D, and All That Remains. The night didn't go entirely as planned, due to some difficulties with PR needless to say we entered the venue much later than planned. This setback caused us to miss out on C1E (sorry dudes!) but we heard they put on a hell of a show. Once we did get in though, I headed straight to the front to meter lights and get set up for our good friends in Crisis A.D. 

Crisis started the night off with a huge bang. Their vocalist Darren never ceases to amaze with his kick in the teeth vocals that really help make their sound stand among the rest. However there is no Crisis A.D without brothers Topaz and Keanu, bass and guitar respectively, as well as Drummer Jake and other guitarist Brandon to round out their whole sound. These guys are a blast to photo, full of energy and plenty of nifty dance moves. If you've ever spent time with these guys you know that they can be total goofballs and some of that shows through when they play to the cameras during their set. I'm glad we were able to get in and catch it. Crisis A.D is a show I'd hate to miss. Keep an eye of for big things coming with these dudes soon!

Once that was said and done we finished out the night jamming some All That Remains. It was my first time seeing these guys, but it's certainly not my last. Their HUGE sound and awesome stage presence made for a really great time, and the crowd absolutely loved them. Their entire look and feel was really fun to photograph, and they played to the camera like champs. Next time these guys are time town, be sure not to miss it!

Overall, a great night at Port City.
