Otherwise 'Takes The Throne' In Parkersburg,wv
MARCH 7, 2015
After being stuck with thousands of other commuters on ice and snow packed I-65 for 14 hours in Kentucky forcing the cancellation of two shows, stir crazy Otherwise hit the stage with a vengeance at the Six Pence Pub in Parkersburg, WV on Saturday March 7, 2015. While this was an off night from their current tour with 10 Years as part of the Birth To Burial Tour, there was nothing "off" about their performance.
When guitarists Ryan Patrick and Andy Pugh hit the stage with the opening guitar riffs of "Love & War" every fan in attendance knew they were in for a special show. That big opening only set the tone for the other high octane hits to come that have made the Las Vegas quintet one of the biggest acts in hard rock today. Every word from vocalist Adrian Patrick on songs to follow like "Die For You," "Darker Side of the Moon" and "I Don't Apologize (1000 Pictures)" seemed to command the attention of everyone in the building. "Coming For The Throne" is the band's second single off of their new album Peace At All Costs and by the time the smoke had cleared from that track's performance it left no question as to why it is currently shooting up the charts as one of the biggest songs in rock music.
Otherwise has a name for their fans, the "Wise Onez", and they not only loudly but also proudly showed their appreciation as they seemed to march to every beat drummer Corky Gainsford smashed out with the evening's final song "Soldiers." As the band stood at the edge of the stage and posed for photos with their Wise Onez at show's end it was clear..... they had "come for the throne" and emphatically taken it in Parkersburg, West Virginia!
