This is the second time I’ve seen Stars in Stereo live, the first was in Chicago they were opening for Bullet for my Valentine, on the Hard Drive tour, of course that tour included Halestorm as well, another female rocker that can blast the boys out of the water with her vocals. Rebecca, or (Becca), the lead singer for Stars in Stereo is no exception, she to, has a vocal range that ranks right up their with the greats.
Stars in Stereo was an opening act for Anberlin on their acoustic tour, but we didn’t stay for Anberlin, we were there solely for Stars in Stereo, and they did not disappoint.
Stars in Stereo was the second opening band, Campfire OK being the fist, and with an acoustic set it’s hard to keep it acoustic, but Stars in Stereo was straight up acoustic, having made an EP just for this tour, which contained three songs that they sang from there debut album entitled “Stars in Stereo”. They sang an awesome cover of “Closer” by “Nine Inch Nails” in acoustic form, it was pretty good, never have I heard a version of that in acoustic, but overall Becca belted out the lyrics just as good as Trent.
The acoustic set list is below:
- The Broken
- All Together
- Closer (Nine Inch Nails cover)
- Half Life
- Dealing Secrets
- Queen of Catastrophe
- Every Last Thing
They could have played all there songs in acoustic I thought, overall a great performance. I can’t wait to see them live again, as they do sound just like there record.
Video credits go to Cheri Hargis, she was able to capture a couple acoustic videos:
We did get to hang with them afterward for a bit, bought there CD and got the acoustic one for free, got some autographs and a group photo. Thanked them for the show, and hoped to see them again live soon.
