Buckcherry and Theory of a Deadman Rock the Mainstage at Uproar Fest

Buckcherry and Theory of a Deadman Rock the Mainstage at Uproar Fest

Rockstar Energy Drink has done it once again.  A mere two months departed from Mayhem Fest, Uproar Fest rolls into Auburn Washington along with Pain in the Grass putting an exclamation point on the summer music festival season. This time around Buckcherry and Theory of a Deadman were among the all-star main stage lineup. This portion of the Uproar undercard gave festival headliners Godsmack a strong set-up and undeniably added fuel to the fire of  the thousands of Washington State rockaholics on hand to enjoy the show.

Buckcherry, short one very entertaining Stevie D., threw down one of the more animated, energetic and entertaining sets of the day. Kicking off the 8 song setlist was “Lit Up“.  Josh Todd took command of the stage from the start, and had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hands as the band flew straight into “Somebody Fucked With Me” off of their newly released 6 track EP.

The middle of the set included two of the bands most popular radio tracks. “Everything” and “Sorry” pulled the crowd into a kind of intimate impromptu sing-a-long moment before the hard hitting Icona Pop cover “Say Fuck It ” turned the tides again setting the stage for the most anticipated song of the set. “Crazy Bitch” rounded out the 8 song set.


 

Theory of a Deadman hit the main stage at 7:25 with the sound system cranked up and the crowd more than ready to go.  Lead singer Tyler Connolly has one of the most distinct looks in rock music and came out onstage with a pristine looking white Gibson V, with white strings.  They were all but ready to blow the roof off of White River…

It was an unfortunate turn of events about 2 songs in that led to some issues for the band. Connolly, losing all vocals, was an amazing professional as he carried on without missing a beat. The band continued to perform through the 3rd song of the set to a swarm of boo birds that somehow felt it was the bands fault.  The crew seemed to rectify the technical issues and as I left the pit after the 3rd song you could hear an obvious show of appreciation for the band as the boo birds were extinguished by roaring fans.

In the end both of these bands dealt with their own brand of adversity and overcame. From missing bandmates to missing vocals, Buckcherry and Theory of a Deadman still managed to rock the stage.
