Warehouse Wired Featuring Nonpoint, Adelitas Way, Blacktop Mojo and More at Warehouse Live in Houston, Texas on March 24, 2023


 

 

 

It was a mega music night at Warehouse Live in Houston, Texas, when seven bands played on Friday, March 24th. Above Snakes, Moon Fever, Sumo Cyco, Otherwise, Blacktop Mojo, Adelitas Way, and Nonpoint rocked the venue and the crowd. Concertgoers had a double concert experience.

 

Above Snakes kicked off the concert with their song, “Nothing to Lose.” The Boston, Massachusetts-based band has a very energetic and theatrical presence in their show. Their song, “Crash and Burn,” was my favorite of their set. They ended their set with their song, “The Broken Ones,” and made way for the next band to come on stage.

 

 

Setlist:

1.) Nothing to Lose

2.) Never Alone

3.) Crach and Burn

4.) Living The Nightmare

5.) 81 (Thallium)

6.) Down

7.) Broken Ones

 

Moon Fever practically flew in on stage and made their presence known. They had tons of energy and moved all over the stage. Lead singer, Cody Jasper, twisted and contorted his body while belting out the vocal throughout their set. They really brought great energy and passion to Houston, Texas.

 

Band:

Tom Petty – Lead Vocals

Mike Campbell – Lead Guitar

Jeff Lynne – Bass Guitar

Phil Jones – Drums

 

 

Next up, Sumo Cyco, from Hamilton, Ontario, was the first band to take the stage in the Ballroom at Warehouse Live. Female-fronted with a lot of attitude and sass, Sumo Cyco was a fun band to photograph and watch. Lead singer Skye Sweetnam commanded the—stage with her amazing vocals, seductive dancing, and fun rock and roll personality. As a spectator, you knew performing was her passion.

The rest of the band continued that energy as they played their nine-song set, which included a killer System of a Down cover. Later on, I saw the band taking photos with fans at their merch booth, and Skye still had the same energy she had on stage while talking with the fans. Great band to see live.

Otherwise took the stage next. The band from Las Vegas, Nevada came on stage ready to entertain. They brought a very emotive and explosive set to the lineup. Their set included several crowd-favorite songs that fans moved along to with the band. My favorite moment was their cover of “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine.

Blacktop Mojo was my favorite band on the bill. Not because they are from Texas but because they were so fun to photograph. I love a good southern rock and soul band. They had guitars, cowboy boots, and loud vocals; what is not to love? They moved all over the large stage and flirted with the crowd.

They made performing look so effortless. Their songs and arrangement were flawless. Their on-stage camaraderie was felt. They photographed like they were jamming in their garage, having a blast, and enjoying each other’s company. Texas grunge was promised, and they delivered.

Adelitas Way was the last band to take the side stage room for their set. They opened the show with their song, “Bad Reputation.” Their drummer, Trevor Stafford, was fun to watch and photograph. He entertained the audience by throwing his drumsticks in the air between drum beats. Their loyal Houston fans sang along to every song, and they finished their set with their song, “Invincible.”

Finally, it was time for the last band to take the stage. Nonpoint came out and punched you right in the face with their music. They came out swinging. One of the most energetic bands I have ever photographed. They were all over the stage. I couldn’t keep up!

Their set design was super cool. I liked the Emerald City theme and the set that encompassed the stage. Lead singer, Elias Soriano, commanded the crowd’s attention with every word he belted. The crowd became increasingly engrossed in their music as they played their set.

Ending their set with “Bullet with a Name,” the lights turned off, and the crowd ended an almost 7-hour concert experience at Warehouse Live. It was a great night with seven incredibly talented bands.
