Rise Against

5.18.18 St. Andrew's Hall - Detroit, Michigan

December 2019

May 18th, 2018.
Rise Against played a concert at St.Andrew's Hall located in Detroit, MI.
This timing was just before they headlined a major tour at HUGE venues.
St.Andrew's Hall is a SMALL venue.

So what is it that I would like to announce?
Well ... I kinda bootlegged the concert.
I've recorded the entire performance by Rise Against performing live at St.Andrew's Hall located in Detroit, Michigan on May 18th, 2018.
(I kind of have experience recording live music next to a speaker.)

I'm under the impression that I had the best seat in the house.
Front and center on the top balcony directly above the PA system.

How did I bootleg?
I managed to sneak in a pocket sized audio recorder.
For extra backround information: prior to driving to this concert,
I had just received news that a close family friend had passed away.
My drive to the concert consisted of tears running down my face.
While waiting in line, nothing stopped me from recording this moment.
My drive from the concert to home listening to this audio is indescribable.
Driving in Detroit with Rise Against performing live in my stereo.

With the announcement I would like only to share the tracklist.
Nothing else.
No pics.
No audio.
You have to use your imagination for now.
You're welcome to reference my lastfm listening history for this album:
With all that said, here is the tracklist:
  1. Black Masks & Gasoline (3:29)
  2. Worth Dying For (3:24)
  3. Give It All (3:01)
  4. Ready to Fall (3:47)
  5. Injection (3:28)

  7. Blood-Red, White & Blue (4:07)
  8. Last Chance Blueprint (2:12)
  9. Megaphone (2:33)

  11. Re-Education (Through Labor) (4:19)
  12. Savior (5:43)
  13. Prayer of the Refugee (6:15)
This audio is worthy of me listening to on repeat for 8 hours a day.
Every listen I revisit this memory and gain inspiration
center vocals, left guitar, center/right bass and center drums
the crowd cheering, singing along and enhancing the vibe

Is there more to say? Well probably.. but.. for now... this is a good start.
I'll see you again when I make a decision for what I do with this project.
I am not ready to share on the internet today
For now it will only be access by my discretion in person
Please be assured that this is the real deal, at least in my opinion.


Come back later for more! ;)
