Go Radio Lucky Street Tour@ In The Venue
Hundreds of young girls fighting shortness of breath to just get at a fingers reach- Go Radio might not be as easy on the eyes as Justin Beiber, but the emotional energy pouring through the venue is quite a familiar setting.
It’s now been over five years since Jason Lancaster, the frontman of Tallahassee’s four piece Go Radio, went separate ways from pop-rock superstars Mayday Parade. Many know Jason as the driving emotional force that led Mayday Parade to their critically acclaimed commercial success with the album A Lesson In Romantics(2007). He has a strength in his voice that resonates as pure talent, and enabling him to be one of few men to attempt replicating Adele’s girth in Go Radio’s cover of Rolling In The Deep. Lucky Street Tour promotes the release of Go Radio’s 3rd studio album and their first full length since the forming of the band in April of 2007.
The Lucky Street Tour setlist was composed mainly of songs from the Lucky Street(2011) album as well as some singles off of their previous EP, Do Overs and Second Chances(2010). There is a very overwhelming intimacy that takes over when Jason lights the stage with a soft piano lullaby, only to end these epic power ballads- such as Goodnight Moon- with a blood thirsty emotion that has clearly come straight from the hearts of these talented musicians. There is a sense of truth that presents itself when four scruffy looking tattoo’d musicians get up on stage and play their hearts out to a crowd of hopeless romantics.
Go Radio may not yet have found the abundance of commercial and material success as the former Mayday Parade, but it is apparent to this dedicated group of fans that Go Radio is a pure form of raw emotion that we all love.
