The Ogden Twilight Series welcomed Phantogram to the Ogden Amphitheater for their second tour stop on their current tour. This show was so popular that it initially sold out at 4,000 tickets so about 2,000 more tickets were released with those tickets all but selling out as well. So almost 6,000 fans gathered in the amphitheater to hear one of the best Electronic Rock bands around today.
Christian Burns is one half of the duo that makes up the electronic band All Hail the Silence. Burns has had an extensive career with his multi-platinum selling band BBMak, collaborating with some of the best DJs in the world and of course his work with BT. All Hail the Silence will be supporting Howard Jones when he brings his Transform Tour to Utah on Tuesday, June 25 at Red Butte Gardens. I had the opportunity to catch up with Christian leading up to the show. Here’s our conversation. Enjoy!
Utah Concert Review: Hi Christian. So where am I catching you on the tour?
Christian Burns: We just performed last night in Huntington New York. I’m not exactly sure where I am at the moment but our next show is in Boston.
Los Angeles based artist Party Nails’ debut album, Past Lives and Paychecks was released in 2018. Her most recent single entitled ‘I Go To You’ is a stunning and intimate love song, featuring relatable honest lyricism, raw acoustic guitar and layered soft vocals which ride gently atop the organic instrumentation. Her previous single ‘So Broke’ features the singer’s distinct sound of glittery synth-pop and went viral on Spotify.
We caught up with Party Nails when she was here in Utah supporting Eve 6 on their 20th anniversary tour. She had some wonderful insight on someone who is getting their opportunity to do what they love. Enjoy!
Utah Concert Review: So are you originally from Los Angeles?
Party Nails: I’m from New York. Like 40 minutes south of Albany. So not too far north but definitely really rural and small.
Utah Concert Review: Did music bring you to L.A.?
Party Nails: Yeah. I lived in New York City for like four years before I moved to L.A. I just had this thought that I should probably move to L.A. so I did. But that’s the short version of the story.
Utah Concert Review: So what happened where you started to feel like things were happening for you with music?
