Show Review: Brand New (08/07/12)

Eight years is a long time to be waiting for something and that’s the amount of time I’ve been waiting to see Brand New. I was 14 back then and while lots of things have changed over the years, my love for this music scene is not one of them. I’d have to say living on the Canadian prairies is the reason why it took so long, since the region is not a place many bands tour, especially bands from the United States. Brand New did play a show here back in 2007, but I was 16 and wasn’t really allowed to go to shows so all I could do was cross my fingers and hope they’d come back.

i waited for years to see them too. saw them with thrice a few years ago and thrice was amazing as always. i was really excited for brand new...and they put on one of the worst live shows i've ever seen. vocals were terrible, consitently off key and just bad. jesse was acting and talking to the crowd like a complete ass hole and i wanted to leave multiple times. i stayed through the whole set, just hoping they would turn it around. this did not change how i feel about the band's music, as i still love their albums...however i have no desire to see them again live, ever.

Sorry to hear that your experience wasn't as positive. I was wondering if they'd pull something like that at my show, but they definitely didn't, which I'm thankful for.

I saw them once in '05 I believe and I feel like by the time I get to see them again I'll have waited as long. Still, great review!

Awesome review for an awesome show.Surprised that someone up above said that Jesse's vocals were off when they saw them. He sounded nothing short of amazing at this show. But I guess everyone has their off days.
