VEARA on God Save the States Tour – Erie, PA 12/20/2013

The God Save the States Tour, headlined by Major League, also consisted of two other awesome Pop-Punk bands (VEARA and Stickup Kid), that spread across various East Coast cities in just a short two week period. On Friday, December 20, 2013, the three bands stopped in Erie Pennsylvania for a late night party. Unlike most shows, this didn’t have an early start time. The first local band didn’t take the stage ‘til nearly 10pm, and Major League didn’t wrap up their set ‘til 2am. That being said, not a single band let the time become a factor…they didn’t care how late they were on and played their hearts out, making sure every single person in the venue had the time of their life.

The Rock Tribune popped in on behalf of VEARA, and we couldn’t be more proud of the fact that they were the band we were there supporting. Down to earth, no rock star ‘tude, some of the nicest folks you’ll meet type of dudes. Nestled in between Stickup Kid and Major League, they gave every bit of who they were to the crowd…to the point they could barely set down their instruments and walk off the stage. A lot of the tunes they played were off of their most recent album titled “Growing Up is Killing Me,” which is amazing regardless if it’s live or on disc. If you’re remotely interested in any form of Punk-Rock/Pop-Punk, this is certainly an album you should check out.

Needless to say, if you haven’t had a chance to see VEARA or any of the other bands that were part of this tour, you missed out…so keep an eye open for the next time they all come to a city near you. Also, big thanks goes out to Jamie and everybody else who helps make Erie Entertainment what it is…if it wasn’t for them, the Northwestern Pennsylvania area wouldn’t have had the number of great shows it’s recently had.
