Concert Report: Fable Cry; Exit/In-Nashville, Tennessee August 11, 2016

Report and Photos by: Melody Ryan

Sitting in the dark balcony at Exit/In, I looked down at the cobwebs that had formed in the cracks of the rafters, and I noticed a creepy crawly little cockroach walking along the ledge. I thought, “How appropriate… he must have come out for the show tonight.”

My new friend disappeared into the shadows, probably to get a better view of Fable Cry who was now taking the stage. A fantastically freaky, spectacularly spooky group of individuals, Fable Cry resides in music city itself and shines brightly like a full moon, casting a ghastly glow over a town that is deeply saturated in music.

REPORT AND PHOTOS BY: Melody Ryan

A dark summer’s night had arrived that I had been looking forward to for quite a while.  I stood in silence in a small, dark, crowded bar, taking in the various faces that surrounded and floated past me, their muffled words grazing my ears and following them across the room.

It seemed a little curious when I found out that one of my favorite bands, Intronaut, was coming to this place.. The End. It’s a small place… too small for such a genius, incredibly talented band such as them. Yet this place, dimly lit, appropriately grungy felt the perfect vibe for the evening.

This year, the sun was unforgiving, and I spent at least a week afterwards peeling off several layers of burnt skin.
I never know quite what to expect with Warped Tour. Every year has its own vibe and is an entirely new experience from years prior. The 2016 lineup is definitely an interesting one, featuring several late 90’s and early 00’s punk and ska bands such as New Found Glory, Less Than Jake, Sum 41, and Reel Big Fish. It felt like I was having a strange flashback seeing these bands on stage after all these years. What have they been doing all this time… have they all really been continuously playing music this whole time that I forgot about them as I graduated high school.. graduated college… moved to Nashville… started my career…? Because.. I totally forgot about all of these guys. Actually, I do have a Spotify playlist that highlights music from my high school years, and I still sing New Found Glory’s “Sincerely Me” and “Better Off Dead” as loud as I can in my car once in a while. However, they did fall off my radar and have apparently released five more albums since I shifted from my punk phase to my metal phase….
