This fall, 5 Seconds of Summer has quite honestly taken the country by storm, both embarking on the U.S. leg of their Meet You There tour and hitting #1 just this week on the pop radio chart for the first time ever with their second single, Youngblood (a BOP, y’all).

With two 5SOS fans who have been around since the band’s beginning, we at The New Nine hit up not one but two shows this tour and boy were we in for a treat.

Taylor’s Doing Better Than She Ever Was: Reputation Review

It’s been 10 days since my reputation tour and it’s taken me this long to put into words the impact of seeing Taylor live after 3 years. I’ve been a Swiftie since I was 16, and now at 28, the only thing that’s changed is the admiration I have for Taylor. From her self-titled debut album to reputation, I grew up with each era she released. When all my friends changed from year to year, Taylor was the one constant I had. Her music was always there when I needed it.

With news of their first headlining tour, we got the chance to check out lovelytheband in Nashville and at Hangout Festival. lovelytheband hit the stage just as the sun started to set and the venue came alive with more fans. Opening with “Make You Feel Pretty” the band set the scene with the song giving off a similar vibe to the time of night and finally for us in Nashville, great weather.

The Night Game Was Worth The Wait

The pop-punk band Boys Like Girls was the soundtrack to my teenage years and was the beginning of my love affair with Martin Johnson. Fast forward to about this time last year and I received a new song recommendation from a friend. Immediately I knew the familiar. Martin Johnson’s latest band, The Night Game, provided my life with the 80s pop soundtrack I never knew I needed.
