Show Review: Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack, Saves the Day
Show Review: Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack, Saves the Day
11/13/10 at 08:10 AM by Alex DiVincenzo
Co-headlining tours can be disastrous. Too often, there is one band that consistently outshines and outdraws the other. Further, there are times when the respective audiences don't mesh. These issues were not a problem for the Say Anything/Motion City Soundtrack tour, however. The pairing was a match made in heaven when it rolled through the House of Blues in Boston on November 8.



Opening the show was A Great Big Pile of Leaves. The Brooklyn trio's indie rock sound doesn't match the pop punk tone of the rest of bill, but they refused to let that affect their performance. Their 25-minute set was especially impressive considering that this is the first real tour.read more]

Cool write-up. I was supposed to see this tour, but I had to work. From the sound of things, it seemed fantastic.

That sounds amazing with all the guest vocalists! Stuff like that is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see.

Man, I wish I got tours like this where I live. Really surprised that Say Anything played Colorblind. When did they start preforming songs from Baseball again?

Love the review, sir.

However, I truly don't understand SA fans' love for "Admit It!!!". I find it to be a waste of setlist space. To each their own, however.

"Admit It!!!" is an amazing song, and I am thoroughly upset that they didn't play it at my date of the tour. I would have gladly traded out any song of their setlist to have heard it live.
