Going Live: Say Anything, The Front Bottoms

Say Anything-1Is there anyone that’s as creative and compelling as SAY ANYTHING? Since the beginning of time – or at least since Is A Real Boy – Max Bemis has allowed his project to snap barriers in half while turning songwriting into an art form, embracing “punk”, and testing the beauty of a collaboration. The band has never been a stranger to the latter and with Fred Mascherino (ex-Taking Back Sunday), Greg Dunn (ex-Moving Mountains), Kenny Bridges (Moneen), Reed Murray (Carrollhood), and Garron DuPree, they’ve managed to piece together one hell of a live spectacle.

The group’s stop at The Opera House in Toronto (July 5th) felt like any other Say Anything show – electric, nostalgic, awe-inspiring – but it was a humbling experience to see the collective rip through Hebrews and a immense catalog while having fun. Not many bands do that and next to up-and-comers like YOU BLEW IT!, THE SO SO GLOS, and THE FRONT BOTTOMS, it’s a truly irreplaceable tour.
