Beartooth & Motionless In White // Live @ The Fillmore // 01.28.20
After the searching of my camera equipment and getting wanded by security, my body started humming as soon as I walked through the door. The intensity of the music coming through the speakers was just a tease for what the concert was actually going to bring.
I always hit the merch tables first and scored huge with an epic shirt and a freakin’ BLACK LIGHT POSTER! My wife gave me “the look” when I told her I’m installing a black light in my office just for my newest purchase.
I usually meander around the venues until showtime, meeting people and taking random candid shots, but I quickly realized I needed to go ahead and make my way to the pit because the place was filling up FAST. Come to find out, it was a sold-out show and security had their jobs cut out for them!
First out was the energetic, post-hardcore group, LIMBS. These guys have really taken off in such a short amount of time and have been a supporting act to multiple tours across the country. But WHO IS LIMBS? (their website handle). The Florida-native band consists of Jordan Hunter, Tyler Martin and Austin McAuley with their music weaving dark and brooding stories that listeners can relate to. Watching the passion these guys have for their music, their sound, their lyrics made me find them on YouTube to explore their videos. Go ahead and follow these dudes…they will be snagging their own tour soon.
Stick To Your Guns
Their energy ignited the crowd with excitement and I became an instant fan!
Next came Stick To Your Guns. Oh. Em. Gee. These guys made me realize how badly I needed to get back into the gym. I have never seen grown freakin’ men jump so high in my life! Their energy ignited the crowd with excitement and I became an instant fan! This hardcore punk band originated from California and consists of Jesse Barnett, Andrew Rose, George Schmitz, Chris Rawson and Josh James. These guys are signed with Pure Noise Records and have made their way around the country with their powerful lyrics and insane music. Don’t just take the surface value off of these guys though. Listen to their messages behind their lyrics and you’ll find they have a lot more to say in their music than you might think with a plethora of subjects ranging from self-reflection to social and even political statements.

Motionless In White
...don't just perform music, they ENTERTAIN the crowd with magnificent theatrics...
Motionless In White. I don’t even know where to begin with these guys. I.N.S.A.N.E. AMAZING! I have followed these guys for a bit because I’m drawn to their unique energy in the heavy metal world. These Pennsylvania-natives don’t just perform music, they ENTERTAIN the crowd with magnificent theatrics and intense faces similar to the likes of KISS and Marilyn Manson. Motionless In White (MIW) has had the fun of touring along bands such as Slipknot, Bullet for My Valentine, Alice Cooper and Halestorm. Working their way across the globe, I was so excited to get a chance to personally experience their electric energy and intense performance as they came around with “The Diseased and Disguised Tour”.
