On Friday night, July 17, the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA, played host to Crobot’s ‘Drunk As Shit Tour’ with bands Minshara, Wilson, Mothership, and Anthrophobia. The show was full of explosive rock music, a rockin’ crowd, and flowing drinks.
Electronic pop rock band, Minshara, based out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania opened the show with the catchy track, “Monster 2.” Lead singer Aaron Miller was bursting with amazing stage presence and energy.
“We felt like we doused the stage with gasoline and lit a match. The stage was on fire from our first song to Crobot’s last song,” Miller roused.
Though, they were the poppiest band on the bill, they could definitely rock out. Songs “Hollywood”, “I Am Your Density”, and “Lakes” were great tracks to include in such a rock-focused bill. Even the song “The Void”, though the only ballad on their set, was very dark, but still enveloped a darkness about it, and the one note that Miller hit at the very end of the song gave me goosebumps.
Wilson, Mothership, and Anthrophobia all displayed great rock and roll spirit. Wilson was a five-piece rock band from Detroit that had a real hard rock anthematic spirit about them. Mothership was similar to an 80’s hair metal band, but better. They had a great stage presence; very animated and present in their art. Anthrophobia was also a very hard rock band. Each band had a different style, but all still similar in that each had the heart of rock and roll.
Crobot closed out the show and boy, were they were incredible! They are your typical (and yet unique) epitome of the heart of American rock and roll music. They opened their set with the rockin’ “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” and the crowd went wild. The Chameleon Club was completely packed for their set. The band’s energy is unmatched on stage and lead singer Brandon Yeagley has this animalistic energy about him when performing on stage compared to his persona off-stage.
