Andrew WK at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Back before Bamboozle started hitting Asbury Park (or other nearby places in NJ) every spring, the similar Skate and Surf Festival used to go down there, but hasn't been in active in eight years. Following the announcement that there will be no Bamboozle in 2013 (but they say, "keep your eyes peeled for 2014 info"), it was announced that Skate and Surf Fest is being revived this year, and will happen from May 18 to 19 at Plaza Green at iPlay America (110 Schanck Road) in Freehold, NJ.
Though we'd never turn down a solo set by Andrew WK, the rest of the lineup is not one we particularly care about, much like most of Bamboozle's lineup in years past. Other bands playing include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Saves the Day, Bayside, Into It. Over It., Hopsin, and more. Tickets go on sale Saturday (1/12).

Taking Back Sunday at Terminal 5 - 11/24/12
Taking Back Sunday have been celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album, Tell All Your Friends, with the lineup that recorded the album, on tour. After some rescheduling, they came to NYC, Long Island, and NJ for shows at Best Buy Theater (11/16), The Paramount (11/21), Terminal 5 (11/23-24), and Pine Belt Arena (11/25). We caught the 11/24 show at Terminal 5 and pictures from that show are in this post.
As I mentioned over the summer, Tell All Your Friends was a pivotal album for many teenagers at the time of its release and while a significant amount have grown up and began seeking other things in music, TAYF still holds a place in the hearts of many and that was abundantly clear at the Terminal 5 shows, where a song wasn't played without the crowd singing along word for word. And as Brittany Spanos for The Village Voice points out, those aged teenagers "were standing by the sides of a new set of kids with the same problems they had 10 years ago like a cyclical, ageless Breakfast Club of sorts."
Before playing Tell All Your Friends in its entirety, the band played a set of material that they recorded after the departure of John Nolan and Shaun Cooper, plus the two opening tracks on their self titled 2011 reunion album. During "Bike Scene," they brought out John's sister Michelle, who sang on the album recording of that track and was also a member of Straylight Run. After playing the album, they stuck around for two more songs, including TAYF-era b-side, "The Ballad of Sal Villanueva." More pics (including openers Gabriel the Marine and Bayside), the setlist, and some videos from the Terminal 5 show, below.
As mentioned, Taking Back Sunday are taking their debut album, Tell All Your Friends, on tour this year for its 10th anniversary that kicked off in early October and it comes to NYC/NJ this month. The band posted an update to their website saying they'd like to help out with the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy. So in addition to their two sold out Terminal 5 shows (11/23 and 11/24), TBS have added another NYC show happening on November 16 at Best Buy Theater with Bayside and The Menzingers, which will be a benefit show with 100% of proceeds going to relief efforts in and around Long Beach, NY where most of the band members are from. Tickets for that show go on sale today (11/12) at noon.
TBS have also "combined" their two sold out Starland Ballroom shows, which would have happened November 16 and 25 but had to be rescheduled due to the damage done to Starland Ballroom, into one larger show happening on November 25 at Pine Belt Arena on the campus of Toms River High School North in Toms River, NJ. This show, like the Best Buy Theater show, is also now a benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief. Tickets to both shows will be honored and more tickets will be available starting Monday at noon. If you can't make it to the new date, refunds will be accepted until 10 PM on November 19.
The band also plays a Long Island show at The Paramount on November 21, which is sold out.
Updated dates are listed below.

Back in 2002, Taking Back Sunday released their debut album, Tell All Your Friends. After that album, the original lineup split up and TBS continued with new members, moving further and further away from their original sound until they basically became the epitome of MTV pop emo. The original lineup reunited for a self titled album in 2011, but saying that album didn't quite capture what was achieved on TAYF is an understatement -- that album was pretty downright bad.
So say what you will about the band now (or even then), but when Tell All Your Friends came out, it was up there with albums like Thursday's Full Collapse, Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon, and Thrice's The Illusion of Safety for one of the most impacting emo albums of the early 2000's for those teenagers (like myself) who were beginning to discover that you can pour your heart out in music and rock the fuck out while doing so. It did for my generation what Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker did a decade earlier, and what bands like Cloud Nothings and Touche Amore are doing for kids right now. I haven't really thrown on TAYF in recent years, but it was reissued in 2011 and I'm listening to that reissue on Spotify as we speak and remembering that I know every word to this album and it's got a huge load of nostalgic value for me and a countless amount of others.
I mention this because Taking Back Sunday have announced that they'll be taking Tell All Your Friends on a 10th anniversary tour this fall, performing the album in full at a number of venues across the US throughout October and November. The tour culminates with a NYC show on November 23 at Terminal 5, and it also hits Sayreville, NJ on November 16 at Starland Ballroom. Tickets for both NYC area shows go on sale Friday (8/10) at noon. Bayside supports on all dates.
A list of all dates, videos from the album, and a spotify stream are below.
When we first mentioned the lineup for this year's Bamboozle, which is taking place from May 18-20 in Asbury Park, NJ, it only included Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Blink 182, Incubus, and Mac Miller. The generally lame festival has since revealed more artists including a surprising number of not-lame artists like the reunited Promise Ring (their first East Coast date announced, hopefully an NYC show to come?), Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls, A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, and Murphy's Law. Take that, Warped Tour.
Tickets for Bamboozle are on sale now. Updated lineup below...
