Brendon Urie, Saint Motel, Setlists…
One of the most anticipated shows of the year took place over the weekend when Panic! At the Disco played a rousing show to a sold out crowd at Orlando’s Amway Center. Rarasfarm contributor Jaydee Grice was there and provided this review: Panic! At the Disco Delivers Memorable Show. Now, we also have the opportunity to share the viewpoints of two local high school students with a deep appreciation for Alternative rock music. Read on for thoughts on dynamic front man Brendon Urie and show openers Saint Motel.
This is the second time this year, we have featured Central Florida high school students, and it’s a trend we love. Young people involved in writing and showing love for rock ‘n roll makes our hearts warm. Check out these young writers for some more insight into the show.
Brendon Urie, by Julia Labreche
Brendon Urie, is a name every music lover should know. This thirty-year-old can sing amazingly and delivers a fantastic stage show. He’s a front man who provides a memorable experience every show.
Starting the concert with an all time favorite “Don’t Threaten Me with a Good Time,” we were introduced to Urie right off the start with a shower of sparklers and confetti. As the show continued, it looked like he was having so much fun by dancing, smiling, performing back flips, and connecting with the fans.
Halfway through the show, there was 45-second video, showing him going backstage and someone kidnapping him and tying him to a chair. While everyone was engaged with the video, no one noticed he was running right by us to go to a mini stage behind the sound technician. When the video was over, lights directed us to the backstage where a beautiful white piano came out, and he shined, while playing his most famous song “This is Gospel.” During the song, white lights focused on him, and confetti drifted from the ceiling.
The most memorable thing that happened was during “Girls/Girls/Boys.” Before the show we were all handed hearts, then during the song when we held the heart to our phone flashlights we filled the arena with a rainbow in memory of the Pulse Nightclub victims.
Saint Motel, by Tiffany Pruss
Saint Motel put on a great show and they sounded even better live than on their recordings. They had a very indie vibe to their performance with the essence of a old television screen, having the names of their songs on the screens with lost of noise on the screen. With lead singer A/J Jackson wearing a red suit, he was very interactive with the crowd.
He got people clapping and had us hold our flashlights on our phones and pump it to the beat of their song “Destroyer.” Later in the set, he got down into the crowd for a portion of a song. Overall it was a great performance and I would love to see them again.
