The Casualties concert: Lose Your hearing, Break Your bones, Have fun!
By Alyssa Super
If you know of the Casualties, I’m sure you know of how well they are in concert. And for those of you who don’t, The Casualties are an underground New-York based “alternative” band. Because of their anti-mainstreamism, the band comes to small, sometimes underground clubs such as the Red Sea or the Triple Rock. Let me tell you one thing, even if you don’t necessarily enjoy all of the Casualties music, or have never heard of them at all, this concert will still be enjoyable. Touring non-stop, you can’t ever really miss them, sometimes they will be in a state two or three times per year. Once the band is on stage, the Casualties make sure that the crowd interacts and is having fun. Allowing audience on stage is one of the awesome aspects of The Casualties.
The concert was really a great show especially since the band is extremely into what they do. They scream, throw their arms and pour emotion into everything they do. They play loud, and clear; so loud that you have ringing in your ears for the next week. And the weakness you are feeling, well- that is just your legs, that are about to give out on you because you’ve been jumping, pushing, or standing too long!
I was introduced to this band, and since than, I have really enjoyed them. The show was great, and the best part of all was the fact that after the show, the guys sit back and talk to us. A lot of musicians see themselves as better than others, but not the Casualties. They will take pictures with us, and even just sit back and well…chill.
