Damn it was good to see Glassjaw live- did they not make your most anticipated for 2008 because they'll probably delay it even more? Haha good list, I like your taste.

Say Anything does indeed put on a pretty kick ass show but after such a great album, weren't you mildly disappointed by the lack of songs from said album?

Best New Bands of 2007
Four Year Strong


man, that's like when A7X won the MTV best new artist after they'd been together like six years.
yeah, FYS has been around for years. not a new band. maybe newly recognized, but i was unaware that that was what qualified you for new.

thats how that shit works bro- people going to Paramore concerts were thinking that TSL was a newer younger band than Paramore, TSL has been around for 9 years. People associate "newly found" with "new" shits lame.
