The Front Bottoms @ The Fillmore

The Front Bottoms sold out one of their final stops of the Going Grey tour in Charlotte, NC. Supported by the Bad Bad Hats and Basements, they played a twenty-eight date tour. They opened with “You Used to Say (Holy Fuck)”, the first song off their new record Going Grey that really sets the tone for the theme of this album and therefore, feeling of this tour- facing the impending reality of growing up and the responsibilities that come with it. Other fan favorites like the “The Beers”, “Maps”, and “Twin Sized Mattress” appeared on the setlist. Lead singer Brian Sella knew how woo a crowd. He joked with audience members and midway through the set list he even asked “Any requests?”. The general consensous was “Father” from their self-titled album. At the end of an hour and a half long setlist they played a two song encore. The final song “Ocean”, also the final song of Going Grey mirrored the thoughts of the opener, but in a calmer, more mature tone. Going Grey is out now and can found anywhere you stream or purchase music.
