  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic.

Music Review: Forgetting Frank excites local crowd with covers, original songs

If you were not at Campus Quarters this past weekend, then you missed one great show.

The local band Forgetting Frank, comprised of all University students, played their second performance there this past Saturday and rocked the crowd for almost two hours.

They started off with a cover of “My Hero” by Foo Fighters, which really got the crowd’s attention.

After a 10 song set, the band took an intermission and came back with a more mellow acoustic session with just the lead vocalist, Austin Mazurik, and guitarist, Aaron Mehling, singing their self-written originals.

Their songs were heartfelt and sung with passion. The lyrics really showcased the band’s personality and I look forward to hearing more originals from them.

The rest of the band came back to the stage for the second half of the performance. They immediately had the crowd singing with their edgy cover of “Ignition” by R. Kelly.

The band performed covers from bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Third Eye Blind and Sublime just to name a few, but they add variety from different genres which makes them well-rounded and allows them to appeal to a wide variety of audiences.

I noticed how excellent they were at taking songs and making them their own. It was very interesting to watch how they can change hit songs and make audiences love them even more.

Finally, Forgetting Frank ended their concert with two big hits. “She Hates Me” by Puddle of Mudd was followed by their rendition of the classic 1999 hit “Larger Than Life” by The Backstreet Boys as everyone in the crowd sang along.

Forgetting Frank’s members also included Gabriel Hartman on drums, Mark McCann on guitar and Jon Thrasher on bass.

The chemistry of this band is evident in their performances. Not only are they a part of the same band, but one can tell that they are clearly all best friends.

Their individual sounds combine and make music that people want to watch and hear.

I enjoy listening to live music, whether it is a well-known band in an arena or just an amateur group playing in a hole in the ground bar. I like the atmosphere it creates and I like to watch people display their musical talents and express themselves.

Overall, it was nice to see Forgetting Frank playing live and I hope to see more bands like them around town.

Their next show will be at the bar 149 North on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 10 p.m. I hope to see some new fans there.
