Seeing Sleeping with Sirens play live was always a dream of mine growing up. Once I found out that they were going on tour, I knew I had to go. They announced their headlining tour Ctrl Alt Del that would take them throughout the US, making a stop in Texas.

Their show began with an American artist known as Garzi. His skateboard, punk-sound captivated the crowd after his first song. Throughout his set the audience waved, cheered, and chanted along with him while he played "MESS", "SICK OF ME", and a few other of his top songs.

Point North followed next with some of their biggest songs including "Ghost in My Home" and "Into the Dark". They put on an amazing set and kept a high, upbeat energy throughout the show. There were tons of people in the crowd that sang a lot and knew every word to their songs.

The last opener of the night was Don Broco, a British pop-rock band. Not only did lead singer, Rob Damiani, have one of the best fits of the night wearing bright aqua shorts and hat, orange crocs, and shades but also had amazing vocals and dance moves. Rob wasn't the only one keeping the crowd engaged through high-energy movement. Guitar player Simon Delaney was one of the most energetic and fun guitarists showing off his spins and high-kicks.

After all three acts the crowd was raging with excitement and energy. When the dark room lit up with strobe lights the entire audience screamed for the band. The band opened with "Break Me Down", a song off one of their latest albums, How It Feels to Be Lost. From the very start the crowd screamed and cheered at the top of their lungs.

Lead singer Kellin Quinn had an amazing stage presence the entire night. He was super energetic and super engaging with the crowd. He was always moving from one side of the stage to the other, never staying in one place for too long. His high-level energy was matched perfectly with his entire band. Bass player Justin Hills and guitarists Nick Martin and Tony Pizzuti all kept up with the fast-paced movement.

My favorite part of the set was when they played some of their old music. Hearing them play "If I'm James Dean, You're Audrey Hepburn" was incredible. Hearing their old songs performed live felt super nostalgic and I can say they sounded even better live. Sleeping with Sirens exceeded my expectations with an unforgettable show.
