The Black Veil Brides were back in town and this time around were taking part in the AP Tour of 2011. The show would not only be bringing them to the public eye but also the bands D.R.U.G.S. (aka Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows) , Versa Emerge, Conditions and I See Stars. The show would start super early and find me missing the first up bands but arriving in time to catch Destroy Rebuild and the headlining Brides. To read the concert report from their sets and to enjoy the photos that were captured just scroll past the logo below. I even snagged some side images that you might enjoy.

It was only about six months ago when I last caught the Black Veil Brides in concert, and I did have a good time so was not all that against catching them in action once again. That last go round was with Motionless In White and a part of the “Entertainment Or Death” tour but tonight would be an entirely different animal and present The Brides with four other bands who were all embarking on the AP Tour which was sponsored by the Alternative Press publication. The scene for the show would once again be at the Gramercy Theatre which seems to be the place that is picking up a lot of these mid-level shows. Having attended a number of gigs that were ill attended over the past year at this same space, I was happy to find out that this AP Tour was sold out for weeks in advance. The five bands performing for this tour were Black Veil Brides, D.R.U.G.S., Versa Emerge, Conditions, and I See Stars and the gig would start very early at about 5:30pm. My own schedule kept me from being there from the beginning so I would miss the first three groups and only catch from D.R.U.G.S. on. Here is how the part of the night that I caught went down.
