Last Wednesday, Anthony Green from Circa Survive was kind enough to sit down and talk to us. We went over a little about how the past albums came to be, where he gets his inspiration, and what it means to be able to be lucky enough to use that inspiration the way that he does. We also got a glimpse into his writing process and a sneak peak of what’s to come.
The show itself was at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. Opening act Maps and Atlases for a moment made it hard to top the talent and energy that was in the room, however, Circa didn’t disappoint. The stage was transformed into a Halloween-themed event. Circa came out dressed to impressed and brought down the house. It was the biggest home town show they’ve had yet and it seemed like they thrived in the comfort of a small venue. Friends and family were there, including Anthony’s parents who were sitting in the back. Backstage after the show there was a small bathroom blacklight performance by members of Maps and Atlases, Good Old War, and local Wadsworth sisters Ali and Claire, further exemplifying the attitude of camaraderie that everyone in this particular Philadelphia-based musical family shares.
