The Front Bottoms at BV-SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
TFB

Say Anything is another of the 2000s bands that were almost entirely ignored by indie music critics, though I still maintain that if 2004's ...Is a Real Boy and all of the earlier material leading up to it (that they reissued as All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities last year) had come out during the #emorevival, it'd be treated far more nicely. Max Bemis & co. just announced that they'll release a new album, Hebrews, via Equal Vision this year (6/10), but Say Anything haven't ever really put out a great followup to ...Is a Real Boy, so #emorevival or not, their time to shine just might be behind them.

To further the Say Anything/#emorevival discussion, the band has just announced a tour which features support from The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, and You Blew It!, three bands that have definitely crossed over to indie rock fans/critics lately, and who we are definitely currently fans of. Not to mention none of these bands are wildly different from Say Anything. (Okay, well The So So Glos don't fall under the "emo" umbrella, but they're at least "pop punk" and did just open for Brand New and now this, so...)

The tour hits NYC on June 28 at Best Buy Theater and also includes nearby stops in Philly, NJ, Connecticut and upstate NY. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Thursday, April 3 at noon. All dates are listed, with some streams/videos, below...

I'm embarrassed for the So So Glos. They really sold out on this one, huh?

Yikes, this is one embarrassing tour.

I didn't live through the great depression and the arcade fires to not devote my very existence to Sachercore.

Put a TM on it. Sachercore. I wish I'd made that comment.

The So So Glos are a great band.

Say Anything? Ugh.

See you guys there. I'm taking my gf; the frontwomyn from perf. puss.

The singer from Perfect Pussy probably had a Say Anything phase.

Sachercore has been raw-doggin' it since 2013. You all are just a bunch of haterz who think it's weird or suntin' to move on from puberty...

I clicked the Say Anything video with the picture of the big wooden penis. A banner ad came up for Backstreet Boys / Avril Lavigne tour. This has been a very unsurprising five minutes of my life.

Based on your browsing habits, my friend. I clicked and got an ad for Boston Calling (which I'm going to). I guess the internet thinks you're a Backstreet Boys fan though.

^ that's really strange. I believe you, but I can't figure why that would happen for my browsing.

The front bottoms are the best band on this tour.

At least it'll be interesting to see how these emo bands react to getting exposed to coke by the So So Glos for the first time

Posted by Anonymous | March 25, 2014 3:58 PM

^ that depends. Is their coke any good?

Posted by Anonymous | March 25, 2014 4:05 PM

So So Glos can't afford the good kind I'm guessing, but it'll probably be a lot like teenagers downing cheap beer for the first time and pretending to be wasted off of three sips.

The So So Bros

So So Glos are actually straight edge.

Bands that do decks > Bands that do coke

That Front Bottoms shit really sucks. Jeez

I was wondering why the comments on this tour were so shitty, but the I realized that I'm reading this article on a vegan's blog. Angry vegans and their angry comments. No surprise there. I've only heard of Say Anything and The Front Bottoms, and they are two excellent bands. I've looked up the other two bands and they sound pretty great. I can't wait for the show.

The owner of this blog and their vegantards should eat a burger and stop hating themselves so much.
