Hell’s Favorite Angels? Good Guys?
Alkaline Trio, the nicest bad guys of punk rock, will take the stage at Jannus Landing tonight at 8. Rise Against and Death by Stereo are opening the show. Tickets are $19 at the door.
USF senior Melissa Maynard attended Tuesday night’s show at the House of Blues in Orlando. “Alkaline Trio’s melodic love songs and eyeliner make them not-so-edgy punkers. Rise Against is very energetic and their lyrics are politically driven,” she said. The combination makes for a night that is anything but musical monotony.
Alkaline Trio started in 1997 when guitarist Matt Skiba got together with bassist Glenn Porter and drummer Rob Doran, according to their label’s Web site, Vagrant.com. Skiba says that was when he “began his quest for the perfect balance of lyrical hell and pop heaven.”
Dan Andriano later replaced Doran as the drummer, a second voice and a songwriter. To help him out with this full load, former Smoking Popes drummer Mike Felumlee joined the band in 2001.
With the addition of Derek Grant in 2003, Alkaline Trio, as the world knows it today, was finally complete. Alkalinetrio.com describes the union as the “perfection of the Trio sonic identity that had been evolving since ’97.”

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
