On a hot and sweaty July evening, fans from all over lined up all alongside the Pageant waiting for one of pop punks most iconic bands, All Time Low.  All Time Low released their debut album on Fueled by Ramen, Last Young Renegade, on June 2nd of this year.  The band started their tour on June 30th in Houston, TX making a quick stop through St. Louis before ending their run in Lake Buena Vista, FL.  Last night's show would not have been possible without the support of the opening bands the Wrecks, Waterparks and SWMRS.

Starting off the evening were the Wrecks who took the stage as the first official band to kick it all off, coming through representing their hometown Los Angeles to show St. Louis who they really are!  After the LA boys, we have Waterparks from Houston, a good drive from STL.  After ripping up and down the stage, frontman Awsten Knight, with his cotton candy blue hair, jammed through the night, warming up the fans for later acts to come!  Third on the bill we have a group of lads from Oakland, SWMRS.  These guys for sure can rip on the guitars and jam out while keeping the crowd on their feet.  It seems like a lot these pop punk rockers love having bright punk hair colors!  It seems like SWMRS, Waterparks and lastly the Wrecks left the packed house with bodies full of energy, excitement rushing through their veins!  And now the moment every All Time Low fan from St. Louis had been anticipating all day for had arrived.  With a strong stand presence, including the huge LED backdrop, lit up the whole venue!  From the moment the lights went out to the the second the band took the stage, All Time Low came out with a bang.  I can definitely say the boys of pop punk left St. Louis with a night to remember.  Hopefully in 2018, we will see All Time Low again bringing some new blood along with even more material but who knows, it's all apart of the excitement!  Photos of the show are below:
