While Evergreen Terrace has been around since 1999, I was only introduced to their music a few years ago. The band is best described as a melodic/hardcore band. Unlike a lot of hardcore bands who strictly stick to screaming mostly unrecognizable lyrics, Evergreen Terrace seamlessly glides from screaming to melodies and back again.
I have seen the band twice before this show. Both times were in small, local clubs with hardly any stage and terrible lighting. Not only was I thrilled to see the band get to play such a large event to a huge crowd, but from a photography point of view, I was excited to see them perform on a large, outdoor stage during the day. There was no need to worry about poor lighting or other people getting in the way.
If you want to learn more about them, or listen to some of their music, check out their page on Facebook.
