At first I thought you were going to make a joke about pleasuring them because I said "my pleasure" haha. I'm pleasantly surprised.

guitarguy211 01/22/13 09:16 AM

Awesome to watch this since none of the shows came out here. They sounded spot on.

j1887m 01/22/13 09:52 AM

Thanks Alex! Has anyone made this an mp3 yet?

Naw not my thing. Haha

Nolessthanblink 01/22/13 10:14 AM

Love the keys being added to these oldies

Nolessthanblink 01/22/13 10:14 AM

Alex, I'm lazy and don't wanna look, but is Underoath coming through there on their last tour?

GreekRebel1153 01/22/13 10:18 AM

Thanks fro posting.


I saw them play in Detroit and I posted this before how they just plowed through their set with very little interaction. This is polar opposite of how they interacted with the Detroit fans and IMO Detroit fans were more into the show than these folks in Boston. Maybe knowing they were being filmed helped?

The first date was in MA and I missed it :-( Venue has a strict no-video policy though.

They didn't know about the filming until after. (I was originally going to shoot photos.) But they said we were the loudest crowd of the tour, so maybe that helped invigorate them. ;-)

Double damn. I'm not able to make the Dallas show tonight and was hoping for a good quality recording of a set from the tour at some point

xHoodieWeather 01/22/13 11:03 AM

that reading of the review was priceless.

trevorshmevor 01/22/13 11:35 AM

Hell yes. Thanks so much for filming and uploading this, Alex. The Starting Line is my favorite band, and I was unable to attend any of the dates this short tour offered. As many times as I saw them live while they were active, and the amount of times I've watched the live DVD, I'm still super excited to have a quality recording of one of these shows.

Here's to hoping for a BOATS tour! ;-)

veronabryce 01/22/13 12:10 PM

YESSSSS!!!!!

Flew out to the last date of the tour in Philly from Denver.

Definitely a performance I will remember for the rest of my life!

After watching most of the video I was kinda thinking the same thing. I was at the Detroit show too and thought the crowd was much more hyper. Either way, they ruled in Detroit and they sound just as amazing in this video.

Johnny Minardi 01/22/13 02:39 PM

Fucking awesome!

bobby runs 01/22/13 02:39 PM

Funny you say that, if you watch the video they teased about possibly playing BOATS in it's entirety as the encore. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed.

Thanks! Hopefully the Letlive/Harvard tour and the Acoustic Basement tour. I keep a running tab of shows here, although sometimes it's full sets, sometimes select songs and sometimes photos.

The palladium needs to change this. I want to re-live too many shows from there.

For real. They're insanely strict about it. I had a tour laminate at one show and they said even the band members aren't allowed to film.

browneyedbutz 01/22/13 05:39 PM

The whole scene of music will never again be the way it was when this album first came out.

SensesFailTY 01/22/13 06:56 PM

SO WONDERFUL! I am sooooo very thankful I got to listen to these guys and grow up with them. Thank you.

punkcrap 01/22/13 07:20 PM

I love SILYMI, but "Are You Alone?" still is my favorite song on their set.

leftapart 01/22/13 08:37 PM

Fucking hell I feel old.

xbobbybo 01/22/13 08:40 PM

so good

pissand409 01/22/13 08:43 PM

Love your videos of these shows, reminds me of The Early November reunion one. Can't wait to watch the whole thing!

Siren 01/23/13 12:12 AM

That was excellent footage.

Fun fact: this is the same venue, one day shy of being exactly a year later.
