"IM WATCHING FUCKING BRAID PLAY RIGHT NOW." - Eric Drumm

Braid
Braid

'90s emo pioneers Braid began their current reunion back in 2011 but it's been more exciting than ever lately with the release of No Coast, their first full length since 1998's now-legendary Frame & Canvas and a very good one at that. The band wrapped up their tour with A Great Big Pile of Leaves this past weekend, hitting NYC on Saturday (7/26) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. We didn't get the setlist for that particular show, but they look pretty much the same for most nights on this tour and have included new album standouts like "East End Hollows," "Bang" and the title track," as well as classics like "The New Nathan Detroits," "Please Drive Faster," "First Day Back" and plenty more. If you caught the show, what did you think? Anybody stop by Washed Up Emo's afterparty at Cameo where Bob Nanna and Chris Broach were DJing?

We unfortunately missed AGBPOL (though they're touring again soon), but pictures of Braid are in this post and continue below...

How are Braid emo "pioneers"? It's not like they're Rites of Spring or something.

And yes, these guys look ridiculous.

Braid was 3rd tier of the 3rd wave of emo.

Didn't go to this show, but hit up the Asbury Lanes to see them. Glad to see they are back - they put on a great show.

Happy to see that people are pointing out how these dudes are fat.

It's easy to criticize people who actually make things from your moms basement.

That one dude has been working hard on making a pair of moobs, that's for sure.

I don't get all the love the new album is getting. Have you even listened to it? The lyrics are laughably terrible.

I get that instagram is cool and all, but the growing number of photographers on this site that use that washed-out look is pretty disturbing.
