"It's almost 2 AM and you all might be asleep, but Maxwell's and audience: You made us bonkers happy tonight. Love you. x" - Texas is the Reason

"Last time seeing Texas is the Reason. Last time at Maxwell's. Last time in Hoboken. So many feelings!!!" - Meghan Galewski

Post-hardcore vets Texas is the Reason are about to end their reunion with a short European tour which begins this week. But after some speculation and strong hints, the NYC band decided to squeeze in one last hometown-area show at Hoboken's soon-to-close Maxwell's last night (7/22), a venue they played multiple times during their initial run as a band. They did mention on stage that they've always considered themselves a New Jersey band by way of New York because they used to practice in a Long Valley basement all the time.

The band came out to "Do You Know Who You Are?," the title track off their only full length album, playing through the PA, and proceeded to perform the rest of that album (not in order), in addition to some other deeper cuts from their career. During their set, they also mentioned that they didn't expect do the show, but Maxwell's asked them and it was a fitting closing for the band ending and the club (which they all grew up going to) closing. The full setlist and a vine from the show are below.

Had their own record playing over the PA? This just gets better and better.

Ted Leo was ballz compared to TITR. Too many new tunes and the same old covers. The RX should have been there.

Wait, so is the guy who got shot Maxwell, and that's why Maxwell's is closing?

who wrote this? "and some deeper cuts"??? They literally played every song they have ever wrote. Which has been the M.O. since the 06 shows.
