Show Review: The Early November/Man Overboard/Hostage Calm
Show Review: The Early November/Man Overboard/Hostage Calm

After a year in which we've seen so many beloved bands call it quits, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that 2011 saw a number of great reunions as well. One of the most exciting, for my money, was The Early November. The New Jersey-based group is one that meant a lot to me during my high school years and, even beyond nostalgia, their songs remain impressive. I caught the band's "final" show at Bamboozle in 2007, and while I am grateful to have witnessed the event, seeing them play a short set in the middle of the day at a big festival never sat right as an appropriate sendoff.

All of these feelings, coupled with the fact that the band is back in action with a new album due out on Rise Records in 2012, made me highly anticipate attending the first of...[read more]

Despite being basically the youngest person there, I had a great time. I only got beer spilled on me once and I'm fairly certain Joe Boynton of Transit was in the crowd.

Not a Man Overboard fan but this show was otherwise excellent. I don't LOVE the Early November but I've always liked them enough since the first Drive-Thru EP dropped and they played enthusiastically and together enough for me to really enjoy it. "Every Night's Another Story" is still just a killer song, too. I bugged out. Ace should play without his guitar more often, it gave things a nice VFW vibe.

I was told Joe was actually the one dude from Transit not at the show.
