Sleeping with Sirens, State Champs @ Union Chapel, Islington
Union Chapel in Islington is the venue for tonight. A church seems a very odd place to head to for a Sleeping with Sirens and State Champs show. It is a rare opportunity for fans of the bands to see their idols perform their hits acoustically and it was one they snapped up with tickets selling out within an hour as frontman Kellin Quinn mentions during the set.

After speeding down the A34 (Disclaimer: speeding added for excitement purposes only) I finally arrived and had an agonizing wait in the queue to get my press pass being able to hear Lonely the Brave knowing I was missing them, so my introduction to Truck this year was me wanting to do an angry old person shaking finger pointing at whoever was at the front of the queue holding me up…

Mitch Emery Takes on The A-Z Questionaire Challenge
Mitch Emery is the type of Singer/Songwriter for those who don’t usually like Singer/Songwriters, this is a guy who looks like that guy from that band you can’t remember the name of but, remember really liking.

You now have yourself a Mitch Emery.
