The night started off with The Key of Awesome, a trio who perform parodies of popular songs. The crowd seemed to enjoy their takes on hit artists like Owl City, Adele, and Maroon 5.
Second up was singer/songwriter Alex Goot. His piano style is reminiscent of performers like Gavin Degraw and The Fray, and his songs were both catchy and emotional.
After Alex Goot was Dave Days, a guitar slinging pop-punk artist who commanded the stage. He performed new and old songs, including some from his new EP “We’re Just Kids”. His set was my personal favorite. He was joined on drums by Ricky Ficarelli, one of the most popular drummers online.
NicePeter was the next act to perform on the DigiTour stage. His viral videos, “Epic Rap Battles of History”, are currently topping the YouTube charts. His impromptu style and clever lyrics kept the audience guessing. His performance stood out as one of the more entertaining, bringing crowd members on stage to perform raps.

Anberlin is currently on the road playing some southeast US shows along with Foxy Shazam and States. States opened up last nights show in Orlando with a rather bland and forgettable set. The crowd did not seem to get into them; they were all waiting anxiously for Foxy Shazam to take the stage. If you have never seen Foxy Shazam live, you have no purpose for living! Without a doubt, hands down the most entertaining band you will ever see live! There are absolutely no words you can use to describe them; they do EVERYTHING on stage, from standing on top of keyboards to eating a whole pack of lit cigarettes while doing a handstand! Aside from their stage antics, they actually play some very good music. While the content and lyrics are interesting, the music they pair them with makes it a total package! See them live, end of story! Read the rest of this entry
