Vinnie Caruana has been having a very busy year. In September his new band Constant Elevation (with hardcore legend Sammy Siegler) released their debut EP, then Vinnie put out a new solo EP in early October, and he's on a solo tour as we speak. And now his classic band The Movielife are returning to the stage this holiday season.
They're opening Four Year Strong's annual holiday show in Worcester on 12/28, and then playing a BrooklynVegan-presented headlining show in Brooklyn at Rough Trade NYC on December 29. The band says, "Gonna play a few that you never thought you’d see us play again. Joined by some amazing bands and friends, it’s gonna be a special night." Support comes from two other Long Island punk bands, Somerset Thrower and Victory Garden (mem Backtrack, Hangman, Capital), as well as Brooklyn's Sharkswimmer. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/11) at noon with a BrooklynVegan presale starting today (10/9) at noon. PASSWORD = MoBVLife.
Meanwhile, Vinnie's solo tour hit Brooklyn last week, and he'll return to the area to play Asbury Park's Wonder Bar on October 24 with Spirit Houses (tickets). All dates for both Vinnie solo and The Movielife are listed below.
Lastly, Vinnie picked five Long Island hardcore bands that changed his life for a new feature with No Echo, and his choices were Vision of Disorder, Mind Over Matter, Neglect, Silent Majority, and Glassjaw. Read his commentary on each band HERE.
