Blue October at The Mercury Ballroom
Blue October's seventh full-length studio album, Any Man in America, is a new beginning. Blue October helped Mercury Ballroom celebrate their own “new beginning” last year at the Grand Opening. Now see the band again in full Mercury Ballroom charisma on Sunday, May 22.
To understand Blue October is to understand their audience. Couples embracing, reminded of the magnetism they possess for one another. Mothers, fathers, teenage daughters and sons finding common ground, when for many there is none. It is not often that you leave a performance reflecting upon moments of past and present, joy, hope, and self-healing.
Singer Justin Furstenfeld found himself emotionally drained at the end of a marriage and a tenuous custody battle that pushed him to the breaking point. Instead of falling further, he turned to the studio and began documenting moments in his The result was a set of new songs that tell a cathartic tale of heartbreak and healing through unbridled lyrical honesty, anthemic modern rock hooks, and melodic soundscapes.
With the crack of a power chord, a haunting piano melody, or the texture of electronic despair, Blue October builds an immersive and often infectious “real life” emotional roller coaster. However, the band refused to simply wallow in the negative aspects of this ride. Rather, the music became a tool of empowerment. You leave a Blue October show reminded that while we all have flaws, but there is real beauty living within us all.
