Saves The Day/Say Anything, Live in New York City
Venue: Irving Plaza, New York City
Support: Reggie And The Full Effect
By now, bands playing full album sets is nothing new, especially in America. In fact, it almost seems to be the norm. At Riot Fest this year, ten bands of its insanely good line-up – including Descendents, The Get Up Kids, Slayer, NOFX and Jane’s Addiction – did just that. And it looks like this trend is not going to go away anytime soon, as tonight shows. Say Anything and Saves The Day have been on the road together since mid-November, the former playing their 1999 second album, Through Being Cool, and the latter their third record, 2004’s …Is a Real Boy, in full. Reggie And The Full Effect – the awkward noise punk troupe headed up by Coalesce/Get Up Kid/My Chemical Romance member James Dewees are also along for the ride, playing their third record, 2003’s Under The Tray… in its entirety. Although a co-headline tour, it’s normally Say Anything headlining, but this is the second of two New York shows, so tonight they play second fiddle to Saves The Day.
