Yellowcard’s Tour Stop at the Electric Factory
Friday night Yellowcard’s latest tour hit the Electric Factory for a sold out show. Opening support for the show was provided by Sandlot Heroes, We Are The In Crowd, and The Wonder Years.
Local Leigh Valley pop rock band Sandlot Heroes opened the night. The band started the night off right and energized the crowd. They slowed their set down and had the crowd singing along to Out Of My Hands in beautiful melodies.
We Are The In Crowd followed Sandlot Heroes in a disappointing performance. Vocalist Taylor Jardine seemed more content playing with her hair than entertaining the crowd. Along with a dull performance, it was nearly impossible to hear her singing, her voice wasn’t loud enough and the rest of the band overpowered her voice. The crowd sang louder than Jardine and it appeared that they only knew the words due to the beat of the music. Bored to tears and bleeding ears are the best ways to describe enduring We Are The In Crowd’s performance.
Philadelphia’s finest pop-punk band, The Wonder Years, followed We Are The In Crowd, saving the night and restoring the crowds energy. The Wonder Years stole the show from the opening acts with their heartfelt lyrics paired with catchy beats. Kids moshed, crowd surfed, and screamed lyrics in unison. The Wonder Years had the crowd amped up and ready for the headliners Yellowcard.
Yellowcard’s performance was spectacular. They intertwined vocals, guitars, drums, bass, and a violin along with lively stage presence to captivate the crowd. Their set was mainly made up of songs off of their latest album Southern Air and Ocean Avenue. Yellowcard also included in their set a cover of Mumford and Sons‘ I Will Wait. Running around in a circle pit to their music was a great way to reminisce about my fifteen year self. They ended the night with their classic Ocean Avenue that had the entire crowd dancing and singing along. Yellowcard proved they are still wonderful performers and very talented at making music that you can move to.
