Show Review:
The Story So Far, Seahaven, Stickup Kid, Troubled Coast, Stateside

July 14 @ Chain Reaction (Anaheim, CA)


I can admit that I haven’t given the new era of pop/punk a fair shake. There are certainly some bands I enjoy, but with the genre severely oversaturated, I tend to write off these bands before one listen. In an effort to expand my horizons, I joined a sold-out Chain Reaction crowd in welcoming The Story So Far to town. I get the appeal now.

I wasn’t immediately won over, though. Opening the package was Stateside, who displayed every complaint I have about the genre. Assuming the tech...[read more]

TSSF are the hometown heroes where I'm at, which I think they deserve, along with every bit of press they're getting this year. They're great at what they do, and as you said: professional. A+ (and I really can't get into the pop-punks).

I don't know if I'd call a band who most resembles self-titled-era Saosin/Thrice "hardcore" but I suppose in the context of this show, maybe. It's pretty safe to call them a post-hardcore band at this point given their evolution from pretty simple/straightforward material like 100 Miles from Home.

Hope Seahaven books time with a good producer for the next LP. AOTY potential if so.

Yeah, TSSF was one of the most nuts gigs I've been to, and they weren't even headlining. It was exactly as you described it, haha. Seems like every one of their shows is like that!

What are we calling La Dispute these days? I see them moving more that direction, giving their lead vocalist more room to play and using the cleans for highlights, rather than the stark clean/scream contrast.

But yeah, their current stuff is post-hardcore.

La Dispute p-h for sure. Though some seem to like to give them the traditional screamo tag.

If you tend to write bands off before one listen, why are you even allowed to write about music? That is the worst attitude to have, and possibly one of the worst things said by any staff member on this website.

Did you even read the article? If I was truly close-minded, I probably wouldn't have driven an hour to go to a show of bands I didn't even know.

Reading comprehension, guy.
