West Coast punks LETLIVE. and Brighton, UK’s ARCHITECTS launched into their co-headlining tour last week and with it being a U.S.-only run, we decided to make a trip out to The Loft in Lansing, Michigan. To be honest: we’d do it again in a heartbeat. Next to must-sees I THE MIGHTY and GLASS CLOUD, both groups pummeled through sets that were born for those who own stage diving shoes and aren’t concerned with every sub-genre that has two legs. The overflow of adrenaline, emotion, and goosebumps was enough to consume any old punk vet and it convincingly added to their ethics and the fact that this is their art. And at the end of the day, it is – especially when it leaves a deafening exclamation point on your own timeline. Joel Pilotte was on-site and you can check out his gallery below.
