Local Love – Choose Your Own Adventure Album Release Party

Photos by: Kevin McGee

The night was set and promoted for ages, it flooded our feeds, encompassed our emails, reminders were set on our phones, and perfect outfits (comfortable shoes) were pruned for the night. Local loves A Light Divided the past year they’ve played a ton of shows, are a promotion workhorses gurus wet dream, and they can match this all with equal amounts of talent. This night they brought along their friends to put on a kick ass performance at The Blind Tiger and celebrate the release of their newest album Choose Your Own Adventure. We were there to snap a stellar gallery and enjoy the camaraderie that sometimes is lost on a scene but NC/SC is melding the music love and doing it right!

The Lineup:

Vice & Vessels

Vices and Vessels - 11
Vices & Vessels brought their metalcore roots to the release show. The energy from V&V was matched by the crowd’s willingness to let go and enjoy the night to the fullest. We were given the chance to hear the brand new single “Self Inflicted” live and damn was that good! You can find their  latest release here.

Fear the United - 05
Greensboro, NC band Fear the United formed in 2009 and have been full steam ahead since. Their metalcore sound matched by their energy blends for a great performance.

Raimee - 01
Greensboro natives Raimée kicked off the night with some of NC’s best hard rock. The effervescent pink-haired front-woman and her black-clad band jolted the crowd into a dancing frenzy with their electric live set and hard-to-ignore music. Their debut EP, “Of Roses and Ravens”, gave them a spot in the NC music scene, while their 2015 release, After All This Time, solidified their presence and made them a contender in the national ranks.  In 2019 we are going to stay hopeful for some new music – can’t wait!

Reason Define

Reason Define - 03
Charlotte’s Reason Define is talented, and they do have a sound unto their own but I’m not surprised by comparisons to Paramore. They have the energy, the pipes, the rock-pop, and the look. Their sets are infamous for the amount of crowd surfing as if an invisible conveyor belt forms just above the crowd and goes steadily until the very last note. RD made the crowd jump and crowd surf the most of the entire night. It’s always a good time with them!  Their debut album Far From Strangers dropped March of 2017 and they are currently in the studio preparing to record their sophomore album. 2019 is going to be one hell of a music release year!
