On May 20th, California punk band Face To Face stopped by the Starland Ballroom to promote their newest album they've recently released, "Laugh Now, Laugh Later". Supporting bands included Strung Out, The Darlings, and Cerebral Ballzy.

Cerebral Ballzy was the first band to take the stage. All of their songs were very short in length and they all sounded pretty much the same. After their third song the band got pretty boring to watch; you could tell the (small) crowd wasn't really enjoying the set. 

Thankfully, The Darlings were up next to restore the energy in the venue. Lead singer, Buddy Darling, took control of the night with his fun/humorous crowd interaction. The 4-man band from California got the crowd pumped with their rad punk/rock vibes. If you haven't heard of this band, I definitely recommend checking their stuff out and possibly catching them on tour next time they're around - it'll be worth it.

Strung Out was up next. The punk rock band from California is best known for their unique music style which fuses aspects of punk rock and heavy metal. On Friday, the members of Strung Out brought an explosive amount of energy to the stage. The boys played a 13 song set-list, ending with their song 'Matchbook'.

Face To Face took the stage at 10pm. The band played a 22 song set-list, featuring 4 new songs from their latest album "Laugh Now, Laugh Later". This new album, which was released on May 17, 2011, marks Face To Face's seventh studio album release. Previously, their most recently album had been "How To Ruin Everything", which was released nine years ago in 2002.

Face To Face is scheduled to continue their tour across the US through June.
