I Saw Brand New!

I have to start off by saying that Brand New is my favorite band and has been for a long time. Saying this concert was magical would be an understatement. This concert was the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life and I’ve been to a lot of concerts. When Brand New took the stage you could instantly tell who was here for Brand New and who was here for Modest Mouse. The entire row in front of me was sitting down for Brand New’s set. I was fine with that because I’m a little short so now I didn’t have any problems seeing the stage. Brand New Opened with “Sink” and went straight into “Gasoline”. I have an unpopular opinion that Daisy is their best album so these songs kicking off the show was a great surprise. half way through they played “Sic Transit Gloria” followed by “I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin light” (which Jessie forgot the words to so he sang the first verse of Weezer’s “Say it Ain’t So”) followed by “Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don’t”. Those three songs were as far as they went back in their discography. The biggest of highlight of the show was the final song “You Won’t Know” where the band thrashed around causing a roar of feedback and fuzz reminding me a lot like the artist Unorthodox. One by one the band members left the stage and the feedback slowing died down in a beautiful decrescendo.
