As soon as Anthony Green, singer of Circa Survive, took the stage, the crowd went nuts. It was one big, hot, sweaty cluster of a crowd and it was perfect. There were kids going absolutely crazy. They were yelling, no, shrieking, the lyrics right back into the band's face. People were reaching as far as they could just on the off chance that they would be able to touch Anthony's hand or get a drop of his sweat on them. You see, Anthony Green is worshipped.
Anthony has a voice that sticks with you. It's a high tenor and it is beautiful. It's one of those voices that you can't describe with words. You can try to sing along to it but you're going to sound like an idiot. It's too high for most people but for Anthony, it's perfect and he does it effortlessly and flawlessly. It makes you feel things you didn't know you could feel. In one song you feel like screaming your lungs out but within minutes, you are being serenaded by Anthony's amazing voice and you're ready to bawl your eyes out. Seeing them play these songs live gives you the same feelings and feeling that at a live show means the band is doing it right.
The fact that Anthony was able to hit every note live left me astonished. The fact that the band was dead on and perfect left me speechless. The fact that I felt that much over a band that I don't obsess over left me overwhelmed.
That being said, both Citizen and Rx Bandits are amazingly talented bands so make sure you check them out and give them some support. Hopefully they will both do their own headlining tour soon and make a stop up here so I can see them more in their element!
I left the show astonished, speechless and overwhelmed by Circa Survive and the night in general. I smiled the whole way home.
