panic! @ the disco @ sprint center

Through almost 15 years of intricate, involved lyricism – the crazy involved titles of the early days, the lineup rotations, the bevy of music videos and the expansion of Brendon’s vocal range – we’ve held on to our deep appreciation for Panic! @ The Disco. So to be asked to photograph Brendon Urie and his team of bandits at Sprint Center on Saturday night, there was zero hesitation. The performance itself was the most involved we’ve ever witnessed from the musical project, Urie’s energy palpable from the first jump out from the hole in the middle of the stage, to his last round of bows and high fives with the audience. The man absolutely thrives off of this life, and you can tell.

What, perhaps, is most notable about his show when comparing it to his performances of yesteryear – think ten years back – is that they have, somehow, become even more theatrical. That was what was so outstanding about Panic! @ The Disco when they emerged on the scene about 14 years ago, they existed as a beacon for the outcasts. The theatre kids, the gamers, the anti-socialites. And now here he is, all this time later, continuing to provide that entertaining escape for other generations, and leveling up with each step. (Just ask whoever he hired as his vocal coach in the past ten years, if you don’t believe us.)

In fact, he even took a moment during his set to bless an unborn child “in the state of Panic” which, to his credit, is a clever saying to have up his sleeve. (Or up his bare arm, depending on if he decides to keep his shirt on or not.)

Either way, here are some fun photos from the inclusive and beautiful evening.

We chose the title of this playlist in honor of the late Dolores O’Riordan who’s hit song we still sing almost daily. It’s so haunting. The other songs on the list are literally just our favorite songs out right now! Dermot Kennedy is an incredible breakthrough talent and so is lovelytheband. The rest are more well-known pop stars with countless hits, but these were the ones that stick out the most right now! For us, we are playing with pop star Anne-Marie December 17th at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale and just got booked for the Beatles on the Beach Festival in Delray next spring! We have 2 new songs coming out in the beginning of 2019 and are super excited. Our first single “Hard To Breathe” has gained significant traction on Spotify recently.

I picked these songs to help inspire sounds for the new project I’m working on. I named it Antimatter bc that’s the name of my project. I grew up listening to rap, alternative, pop punk, and reggaeton so I’m looking to create something that incorporates all of that. Picked current hits from these different genres.
