Read my review and take a look at my pictures of Say Anything, Saves The Day and Reggie and The Full Effect in Worcester, MA. Say Anything performed all of ...Is a Real Boy, Saves the Day played Through Being Cool, and Reggie dressed in Christmas costumes.
I've had the pleasure of seeing Say Anything more than a handful of times over the past decade, but I've never seen mastermind Max Bemis so invigorated, so confident, so happy to be on stage as he was at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on November 30th. His excitement was matched only by that of the crowd, who were eager to hear his modern masterpiece in its entirety. And the set began with a song of rebellion...

Max Bemis of Say Anything participated in Noisey's 'Rank Your Records,' naming ...Is A Real Boy his favorite and Anarchy, My Dear his least favorite.
I sacrificed so muchóquite the few emotions, body parts. And I can hear that and itís uncomfortable. That being said, I think itís number one is because I donít think when people say they like it, that itís just nostalgia. I think thereís a part of it thatís nostalgia, which is cool, because I have that for all my favorite records. But for me, Iím a 30-year-old, average, semi-hipster. Literally, Iím probably the Noisey target demographic. But my favorite record of all time is Saves The Dayís Through Being Cool. And I refuse, no matter what...

Lady Gaga has revealed a previous sexual assault to Howard Stern.
The singer then addressed the event that inspired the song. Although she declined to reveal the person who raped her at age 19, Gaga said that the man was 20 years her senior. "It didn't affect me as much right after as it did about four or five years later," she said. "It hit me so hard. I was so traumatized by it that I was like, 'Just keep going,' because I just had to get out of there."

A different perspective on the entire Pomplamoose situation, from Ari Herstand:
They didnít go on tour to make their income for the year like other bands do. Other bands donít sell anything online and make all their money on the road. Pomplamoose is not one of them. They make over $5,000 a month in download sales. So instead of blasting them for their lack of tour income why not praise them as being one of the few bands who are still able to make a living selling their music online Ė without touring? They get paid (directly by their fans via Patreon) over $6,000 for every video they put up (for free) on YouTube. Why not praise them for figuring this out? YouTube ad revenue is a joke....

You can check out our interview with Alex Erian of Obey The Brave here. The band's new album Salvation is out now via Epitaph Records.
I'm personally involved in management/business side of things when it comes to this band. We have a manager and booking agent and all that, but I oversee everything - and that's something that I wanted to do, the label didn't feel strongly about it at first, and then when they saw the repercussions, they were all about it. It's something people do in the hip-hop scene all the time, putting out singles, and we just wanted to do that in our scene, and I'd encourage more bands to do it...especially in this day in age, record sales are less and less relevant,...

I recently had the chance to sit down and talk with Aaron Marsh of Copeland about the band's new album Ixora, the future of the band, and what it was like to get back together and record after a few years off. You can check that out here.
This is like, I should do a different interview for 'What The Fuck Am I Doing Magazine' or something like that. So Twin is the bonus disc, so there will be a two disc set that's kind of the deluxe edition, we're calling it the Twin Edition, and so the bonus disc has all of the songs from the record in different versions, so some of them are acoustic, some of them are kind of remix, some of them, one of them is just kind of like a soundscape with, you...
