Work in the morning didn't stop All Time Low from packing The Fillmore to near-capacity (over 1500 people) last Sunday night. With their whopping 7.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, impressive numbers like these were to be expected, especially in a city where pop-punk and alternative rock seem to thrive.



Nothing, Nowhere opened the show with his raucous and high-energy pop-punk attitude. The stage remained backlit throughout the show- causing him and his band to look like alternative ghosts as they floated across the stage and cranked out essentials like "... Pieces of You" and "lights (4444)" to a crowd that obviously didn't just come for the headliner.



Naturally, as Nothing, Nowhere's set closed with "fake friend," the crowd was electric with anticipation, which only grew as Miley Cyrus's "Party In The U.S.A." played over the venue speakers. Laughably, it was their walk-out song. As the band members emerged from backstage they were met with a wall of sound from an elevated crowd. They quickly strapped up their instruments and returned the favor, opening their set with "Do You Want Me (Dead)." The energy didn't fade as the night continued. From the confetti cannons early in their set to their very last song, "Dear Maria, Count Me In" (their biggest song to date, fyi), All Time Low put on a bright, powerhouse performance worth checking out next time they're in town.
