Live Review: Unwritten Law & Big B @ Roxy Theatre

The Roxy Theatre was packed on New Years day as music fanatics flocked to watch Unwritten Law and Big B along with opening acts Sozay and The Darlings. After the two opening bands performed, attendees began mingling with friends, getting drinks at the bar, listening to the DJ and waiting for the nights headliners.

At around 9:30-10p.m., the lights dimmed and the curtains lifted. The pit became tighter every second as people moved closer.

The lights shined and the band broke into an intro song leading up to “Cali” and Big B stormed on stage into the song. The crowd went crazy and sang the lyrics. He thanked the crowd for coming out and after about six songs he asked the crowd if he could bring a friend out to help him with a song. Scott Russo of Unwritten Law came on the stage and they sang “Sinner.” After the song Big B let the crowd know, “People think that was a flaw, but we could do it again!”

Big B and Russo went straight into, “For Tonight,” from the new album Good Times and Bad Advice. The set was about 14 songs from various albums such as Renegade, American Underdog, Good Times and Bad Advice, etc. The band thanked the crow once again and left the stage. 

It was around 10:30pm when Unwritten Law came out. The curtains once again lifted and each member made their way on stage one by one. Behind the drum set were lights and a banner that read, “Happy Fucking New Year,” and once each member took their rightful spot on stage and wasted no time. They began the set with the fast rock song, “Up All Night,” from one of their older albums “Elva” released in 2002. Without pause the band went from fast song to faster song. It wasn’t long before the crowd started to mosh. The punk song “Teenage Suicide” instantly got the crowd going crazy. Moshing and shouting lyrics. By The 4th song “Blame it On Me” the first crowd surfer surfed his way up onto the stage. The band paid no attention and continued on with the song. Throughout the 18 song set the band played songs from 1994 albums up to the latest album “Here’s to the Mourning.” Most songs played were from the 2002 album Elva which was more of a hard rock album. Overall, all the performing bands put on a high energy show and interacted with the crowd frequently which made the performances all the more better.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content.
