After the opening bands finished a large countdown clock appeared on the primary screen at the back of the stage. Considering the number of times I’ve stressed about making a […]

  Power rock/pop band Panic! At the Disco comes to the Moda Center this weekend. Music snobs (including myself) typically shy away from mainstream rock bands but Panic! At the Disco is an exception.
