The Band CAMINO’s Screaming In The Dark tour kicked off on September 14, in Philadelphia, with night two taking place at Washington D.C.’s The Anthem. With support from openers Charlotte Sands and Bad Suns, The Band CAMINO created an energy in the D.C. venue that was electric.
The Band CAMINO took their sophomore album, “The Dark,” literally and created an immersive, glow-in-the-dark experience. CAMINO’s visuals mixed with their unique pop-rock sound, captured the audience within seconds.
Garrison Burgess continued to engage the crowd song after song through his heavy drum beats. As for vocals, Spencer Stewart and Jeffery Jordan complimented each other in a way I’ve never seen two artists do before. The trio as a whole has such intense chemistry when performing, and it makes for such an intense, electric sound and intimate energy. The Band CAMINO has a way of making you feel like you’re the only person in the room, which isn’t something you can say for most artists.
CAMINO played all the hits from their sophomore album The Dark, including “What Am I Missing?” “Novacaine,” “Afraid of the Dark,” and “See You Later,” plus so many more.
Despite the focus being this latest album, which came out just over a month ago, that did not stop them from playing songs from earlier in their music career too. The Tryhard EP is home to some of CAMINO’s most iconic songs, including “Daphne Blue” and “See Through,” both of which were played.
Going back even further than the Tryhard days, CAMINO played their very first song, “2/14” and included many of their early songs in a stripped-down medley.
The mix of upbeat, electric songs and slow, stripped-down songs created such an emotional rollercoaster of a setlist. The Band CAMINO’s music is so relatable and powerful, making you feel such a wide range of emotions in such a short period.
The Band CAMINO’s Screaming in The Dark is more than a tour; it is an experience you do not want to miss!
