Ohio based hardcore band My Ticket Home tore up the Marquis Theatre in Denver, July 22, along with headliner I Set My Friends on Fire and Japanese band, Fact. Also appearing was the Color Morale, an Illinois band also signed to Rise Records, as well as Our Last Night.

The Color Morale, excited to have finally made it to Denver after transportation troubles on many previous tours, played an enthusiastic set. Front man Garret Rapp was engaging and charismatic while talking to the crowd in a down-to-earth manner as if he and the audience were old friends going way back. After playing crowd favorite “Nerve Endings,” they debuted an untitled new song. They ended the set strong with “Humannequin.”

My Ticket Home is made up of vocalist Nick Giumenti, Marshall Giumenti on drums, Luke Fletcher on bass, Derek Blevins on guitar and vocals, and Matt Gallucci on guitar. The band was formed out of Columbus in 2008 and quickly gained attention in their hometown, becoming the top unsigned band in Ohio in 2009. They are a tight-knit group with the Giumenti brothers and Fletcher having attended the same high school. Starting off the set with “Fear Complex,” one of the heavier, darker songs off their new album To Create A Cure. After a more traditional metalcore sound with “Desertion” from 2010’s Opportunity To Be, they transitioned to a more melodic sound with the song “Atlas.” The song’s catchy chorus was interspersed with Giumenti’s angsty roar, creating a wonderful contrast.
