The night started around 7:30 with a collection of local bands. The crowd was spares but as the line up progressed there was a bigger gathering with a few staple fans eager to throw down.

Following This or The Apocalypse, the time had finally come for the anticipated headlining band, Texas in July, to bring a rocking set. From the first song all the way to the last, heads were banging and bodies were moving. Recently having transitioned from CI Records to Equal Vision, the band played songs from their latest release Uncivilized, as well as, their previous albums. Lead vocalist, Alex, grabbed the attention of fans and passer-biers alike with his full ranged vocals ripping through the mike with each scream. The guitar riffs and break downs flooding from each song were perfect for fans to move around to. Each song transition had a different electronic intro adding an extra dose of uniqueness.
