The Family Crest At Great American Music Hall

At that show, The Family Crest headlined and my friends from Before The Brave opened. They were a young band that didn’t have the following to headline a show at GAMH. Playing with a larger headliner was good for their career. Similarly, at the most recent show, my friends from Lapel played their first show in San Francisco in the support slot. It’s a great way for young bands to earn new fans. The crowd at GAMH was supportive, excited and stayed for all the bands.

Four years ago was a long time away from last Saturday. However, while I was at their most recent show, I felt like I was being transported back to the first time I saw them. My expectations for their most recent show at GAMH were set very high. I have been craving The Family Crest experience for quite a while. As a promoter of local music scenes, I want the bands I’m passionate about to experience big success. However, when they do experience that success, it’s good for them, but selfishly I miss seeing them play locally on a regular basis. The bands I could see once a month are suddenly playing a list of shows that aren’t in my city. For example, The Family Crest’s most recent tour took them to twenty-two plus cities and as far away as New York, NY.

My point is that I had been waiting a long time to see The Family Crest, and it was well worth it. To my delight, every song still feels like an anthem … and they had written new songs I had yet to hear. I am happy for their success but sad that I have to share them with the world.

The Family Crest has good fans and they were in full force at the show. I felt the positive energy from the point that I entered the venue to the point that I left. If you have the chance to see The Family Crest live in a city near you, I highly recommend it.
