The last time Wolf Alice was in Columbus, they debuted a brand new song, “Yuk Foo,” one of the band’s hardest rocking tunes to date. A little over a year later, the UK quartet was back, treating the sold-out crowd at The Basement to more than a few new songs from their forthcoming sophomore album, Visions Of A Life, which is set to be released on September 29. This was the first ever CD102.5 “Trust Us” Series show, where the headliner was not revealed until the show sold out.

The Regrettes’ songs are everything that you could want them to be - catchy, high energy, honest, relatable - and their live show was just plain rock ‘n’ roll fun. The band clearly has a great time playing together, and that excitement and joy is immediately infectious to the crowd. The band k
The Greeting Committee clearly feel right at home in Columbus, and rocked The Basement like it was a hometown show of a band that had been away for too long. Although they hail from Kansas City, thanks to the support from CD102.5 and the fans here in the Capital City, the band declared several times throughout the night that Columbus has felt like their second home. This was the band’s third show in Columbus within the past year, having previously headlined at The Basement la
It was a beautiful Sunday evening—the clouds were white and puffy and the sky was the perfect shade of blue—and the last stop of Twenty Øne Piløts's Tøur de Cølumbus was upon us. Throngs of people congregated outside of the arena in the Northwest plaza, sprawled in the grass, with the excited fans of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun all singing along to the music blasting through the speakers as they waited for the doors to open.
