The PNW summer is STACKED with rock shows. Add one more to the list - KISW Presents Deftones & Rise Against, a co-headlining a tour that hits White River Amphitheatre on July 3rd! 


Yes, it's a Monday, but you PROBABLY have the next day off, as it's Independence Day. If not, just call in sick for the 3rd and you'll be glad you did, because these two rock powerhouses will be PHENOMENAL as a double bill! 


For me personally, I'm a slightly bigger Rise Against fan, and have had the esteemed pleasure of seeing them several times over the years. Did you catch their set at Bumbershoot back in 2004? It kicked ass! As a punk-rock kid who bought any and every album on Fat Wreck Chords back in the day, I gravitated to Rise Against's debut album The Unraveling, and my favorite song on the album will forever be 'Six Ways 'Til Sunday'. KICK ASS ANTHEM!  


Their sophomore album was Revolutions per Minute, and I fell head over heels for its angsty goodness, especially the track 'Black Masks & Gasoline'. 


Although I haven't seen them live (YET - check in with me July 4th), I first encountered Deftones when someone played '7 Words' for me, and as a young Taryn, I LOVED it because of the swearing :) TAKE THAT, MOM AND DAD! That was my attitude - buy all the CDs that had parental advisory stickers. Give me all the explicit content. Give me Adrenaline


So excited to FINALLY catch Deftones in concert! And with one of my FAVORITE bands growing up, Rise Against. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am at


Happy Rocking,
