Pierce The Veil || The Mayan

In a venue that could resemble a ride at Disneyland, The Mayan sold out a Pierce The Veil show for the last show of their Misadventures Tour. The upside of shooting bands with a younger audience is that I can always see over them. With that being said, the crowd had an insane amount of energy for their size. At one point during Movements’ final song, Pierce The Veil came out on stage and played a game of flip cup onstage. The whole crowd erupted in teenage screams as fans got the first glimpse of their idols pranking their friends. Then, at the end of I The Mighty’s set, Pierce the Veil and Movements came out dancing and wrapped colorful feather boas around their friends. Pink dolphins littered the stage and one got taped on the microphone stand. Thats truly how it felt too. Just a few groups of friends, hanging out on a Sunday night, playing music they love in front of their screaming fans. 

Between the I the Mighty and the Pierce the Veil set, I sat down next to the loudest subs. Imagine if you fired an automatic 50 caliber surgically placed inside your heart. That's what it felt like. Seriously though. Earthquakes inside my eyes. The Millennium Falcon going into hyperspace in my ears.

Pierce The Veil played their new album, Misadventures, in its entirety. Confetti cannons exploded at the beginning of their set. Ear piercing girlish screams followed as Pierce the Veil began playing Dive In. For the rest of their set, the crowd was fully engaged and energetic; constantly jumping around hands raised. About half way through their set, Vic Fuentes (lead vocalist) came out with an acoustic guitar and played an acoustic version of their song, “Today I Saw the Whole World.” I expected to see lighters come out and wave through the sky, but only found cell phones due to the audience’s age. For their encore, Pierce the Veil played Bulls in the Bronx followed by King For A Day. In class fashion, Movements and I The Mighty put on the biggest party for Pierce The Veil's last song of the tour. Silly string, toilet paper, balloons, and beach balls flew across the sky. Then the confetti canons exploded as pillars of smoke shot high in the air. It was incredible. There was so much raw energy and life in that room. In time, all the chaos and noise would fade away leaving exhausted fans with a wonderful memory.
