Friday, April 20: Las Rageous Bands and Setlists

A Day to Remember Las Rageous 2018 Setlist
The pulsating riffs of the “pop smosh” group A Day to Remember launched the weekend with “The Downfall of Us All.” They ended their set with the universal favorite “If It means a Lot to You” that starts with haunting acoustic chords and climaxes in a dramatic culmination of vocals and hardcore emo glory. Of course, that wasn’t truly the end as they finished with the ‘07 hit.

- A Shot in the Dark
- All Signs Point to Lauderdale

- Mr. Highway’s Thinking About the End
- Have Faith in Me
- All I Want
- If It Means a Lot to You
- The Plot to Bomb the Panhandle
Despite some complications with Jeremy’s mic in the second song of the set, it did little to slow down the concert.
The Perfect Circle 2018 Las Rageous Setlist
Who better to follow the emo and hardcore pop mix of A Day to Remember than The Perfect Circle? “Eat the Elephant” slows things down just to gradually build again throughout their performance. From their rendition of Depeche Mode’s “People Are People” to a fan-favorite like “The Doomed,” they pleased fans and soon-to-be fans.

This 90s group formed by former Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan provided depth with their supergroup rock-mix.

Underoath helps vamp up the night alongside VYCES with an albeit shorter setlist but nonetheless energetic and charged with their classic punk rock melodies and rhythms.

And Five Finger Death Punch provided. They don’t tease and play outright some of the all-time favorites like “Jekyll and Hyde” and an unexpected acoustic version of “Wrong Side of Heaven.” The metal jabs don’t stop there.
