Really fantastic show! I had never been to the Troc before but it was awesome. The balcony area is great and the fact that it's all general admission allows you to get some really amazing seats if you get there early enough. Now for the bands.
Affiance: Having only heard of them about a week before the show I didn't have a whole lot of time to learn any of their songs. That being said, they were still good. Great stage presence by the whole band, especially their guitar player. He really got the crowd going!
The Word Alive: Besides the main act, these guys were the highlight of the show for me. The whole band was awesome and as a tribute to As I Lay Dying who were supposed to be there but couldn't, they did a cover of 94 Hours which just just blew me away. I really hope they do a studio recording of that song for their next album.
Darkest Hour: Good band, really good performance. Not much else to really say about that. …
