Waterparks in December! Wow!

Waterparks in December! Wow!

Is it still cool to make a joke about visiting Waterparks in December? Probably not.


Nevertheless, the actual band Waterparks did make a early-Winter stop at the Fillmore Underground earlier this week and it was much better than visiting an actual frozen waterpark. Oops, looks like I made the joke anyway.


Doing a pre-album show run, the Texas three-piece are making their way through the US to gear up for what’s about to be a hectic 2018. Their second full-length record is on its way January 26th of next year, fittingly entitled Entertainment, and released the first single, “Blonde,” with pre-orders going up on November 3rd. 


The band has one final show in the US, a homecoming show at the Houston House of Blues, on December 7th, before they head across the pond to foreign venues next year. It seems the trend as of late is to celebrate album releases out of the States before touring around the US, so it makes sense they would celebrate the release of Entertainment in Australia and the UK!


Joining the trek across the US are three up-and-coming bands soon to be headlining their own tours.

As It Is(6)

British pop-punk As It Is are a staple within these crowds’ playlists, I’m willing to be on it.

Promoting their latest release, okay., As It Is are famously known for vocalist Patty Walter’s column with Rock Sound, so chances are, if you don’t know As It Is, you still kinda know As It Is.

The quartet are heading over to the EU in 2018 as well, with a run of dates starting in Germany, Italy, Poland, and ending in a maze of venues throughout the UK.

Georiga’s own Chapel jumped on this tour as well, hitting up fans new and old all over the country. Halfway through the tour, Chapel‘s Sunday Brunch EP was released via Rise Records on November 17th! The indie duo celebrated the EP release in good ol’ Salt Lake City in a room full of WP fans and new Chapel diehards.


Veteran five-piece Sleep On It have been in and out of the scene since 2012, and are another band I will bet found a home on this crowds’ playlist. With 2017’s Overexposed out now, I’m sure Sleep On It are treating this tour as a band welcoming rather than a chance to get their names out to listeners. Each night is a “Welcome to the Sleep On It fam!” and we certainly aren’t complaining.
