UTG PHOTOS: Warped Tour Detroit (7/19/14)

Under The Gun’s Head of Photography, Corbin Alvae, attended the Vans Warped Tour on July 19, 2014 in Auburn Hills, MI.

Well, it’s Summer and that only could mean one thing. Actually, it means a lot of things, but one of the most important aspects is one of our favorite tours traveling across the U.S. and Canada. To photograph the Vans Warped Tour this year, I stopped over at one of my favorite places to shoot at, called The Palace of Auburn Hills, where a couple of my recent photo sets were as well (e.g. Demi Lovato, Paramore, and Fall …

WATCH: We Are The In Crowd Acoustic Performance

Poughkeepsie, New York’s We Are The In Crowd recently sat down with Glamour Kills to record an acoustic version of “The Best Thing (That Never Happened),” and you can check out a video of the performance after the break.

REVIEW: We Are The In Crowd – ‘Weird Kids’

Artist: We Are The In Crowd
Album: Weird Kids
Genre: Pop-Rock
Label: Hopeless Records

For me We Are The In Crowd was just a pop rock band with snarky lyrics that would have been perfect for posting as an away message when I was in high school to upset an ex-boyfriend. Only, I’m not in high school anymore. However, with Weird Kids I still conjure up those ironic images, but now there’s a lot more to imagine. Weird Kids holds onto the strong pop rock sound that will help release angst and frustrations, but there’s also a lot of real

WATCH: We Are The In Crowd’s “The Best Thing (That Never Happened)” Video

We Are The In Crowd released the video for “The Best Thing (That Never Happened)” today and it’s already been played in my apartment one too many times.

If you took what you already loved about the Poughkeepsie pop rock band and tossed in some of that Nickelodeon show Ariana Grande sprang from, you’d have the best explanation for this song. It’s catchy as hell and showcases the sass we’ve come to expect from We Are The In Crowd’s lyrics. What’s missing from this video though is a cutesy storyline – guess they’re growing up.…
