Third Eye Blind @ The Complex 07.10

Posted July 15, 2015 in Photos,

Friday night at the Complex was one that I will not soon forget. From Third Eye Blind to Dashboard Confessional, it was as though I had a chance to relive my childhood and early teenage years. Opening act Night Terrors of 1927 started the show off by getting the crowd on their feet and pumped for the bands that followed. The diversity of the crowd was apparent as fans both young and old, drunk and sober, stoned and more stoned, were strewn across the entire venue. Dashboard Confessional fans reminisced over loves lost and the difficulties of their former high school days while Third Eye Blind fans did the same, only going back a decade or so to collect their thoughts. Nostalgia however, was not the only reason fans came to see these bands perform—their newer music was what really drew the crowd in on Friday night. Dashboard played through their more popular songs like “Screaming Infidelities” and “Hands Down” while Third Eye Blind did the same through songs like “Jumper” and “Semi-Charmed Life,” but the new songs from each band’s set was truly refreshing to hear as the sound were unique but memorable within each band’s genre. However these band’s managed to come together on the same stage may remain somewhat of a mystery but I am thrilled to have witnessed this union all the same.
