Circa Survive Concert Review
Living in a house among die-hard Anthony Green fans, it was only natural for us to take the journey to Philadelphia to see the last show of the Circa Survive tour. Circa Survive performed two nights, Saturday December 13th and Sunday December 14th, at Union Transfer.
They started off the set strong with songs off their very first album, Juturna. That’s always been a classic and it brought back so many memories hearing the songs “Act Appalled,” “In Fear and Faith,” and “Stop the Fucking Car.” I didn’t go completely crazy until they started playing songs off of their third album, Blue Sky Noise. It’s always the best feeling when you’re surrounded by other fans and everyone is singing along to every word. When “I Felt Free” came on, it was like the whole room was focused on one thing. Atleast I was. I was just staring up at Anthony Green, trying not to get sucked in to the enormous crowd, and singing like crazy. The venue was pretty awesome too. The venue was similar to Terminal 5 in the set up and created a great atmosphere. It wouldn’t have hurt to have been a little bit bigger, but it worked out nonetheless.
I can no longer count how many times I’ve seen Circa Survive play, or Anthony Green play on his own, but it never gets old. Each time is more amazing than the one before it. This is a band I grew up on and will probably enjoy till I’m no longer able to hear. When they closed with “Get Out,” another song off of the album Blue Sky Noise, the crowd went insane. INSANE. There’s nothing better than not only being at the last show in that particular city, but being at the last show of the tour itself. It was well worth the trip to Philly.
