On December 8th, Citizen Zero performed at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Maryland. They opened the show for Pop Evil. Also playing that cold Thursday night was local band, Fatally Yours.
Citizen Zero had the stage for about 40 minutes that night. The four piece band from Detroit, Michigan, filled their set with energy and got the crowd moving. They began with an instrumental intro, before launching into their current single, “Lure and Persuade.” They also played “Go (Let Me Save You),” another song that many may have heard playing on the radio. After that, Citizen Zero performed a cover of Ted Nugent’s “Stranglehold.” Next was “Save The Queen,” another song off of their debut album, State Of Mind. They ended their set with “Home.” During that song, lead singer Josh LeMay spent most of the time down by the barricade, singing with the crowd. As Citizen Zero’s set came to a close, much of the audience had found a new band to check out.

On October 27th, Beartooth came to Baltimore Soundstage in Baltimore, Maryland, with Every Time I Die, Fit For A King, and Old Wounds. This Thursday was a special night of the tour, as Beartooth’s set was being live streamed through Live Nation TV. Those who were unable to make the show were able to watch Beartooth perform from the comfort of their own homes.
Old Wounds started off the night. The band played for about half an hour and got the crowd to start moshing. The five piece band performed with a lot of energy, constantly jumping around the stage while they performed.

To close out the night, Beartooth took the stage. They opened their set with “Burnout,” off of their new album, Aggressive. Throughout the band’s performance, the fans sang along so loudly that they could be heard over the music. Guitarist Kam Bradbury jumped off the stage and began to crowd surf while still playing. Partway through the set, Beartooth played their current single, “Hated,” before going into what lead singer Caleb Shomo called a short intermission. They also played “I Have A Problem,” which was the first song the band ever released. Beartooth included drum and guitar solos during “Rock Is Dead.” After “In Between”, the band stepped off the stage before coming back on to perform a two song encore. The first song of the encore was “King of Anything,” which Shomo performed the first part of by himself before the rest of the band joined him. Beartooth ended the night with “Body Bag,” with nearly everybody in the room singing along with it.
