|The Buffalo News did not like Brand New at Edgefest.|
Wow. Iíll go out on a limb here and suggest that Brand New is one of the worst bands Iíve ever seen in decades of concert attendance. Horribly out of tune, dedicatedly dirge-dedicated, apparently hostile to anything resembling a melody, and, one would guess, comfortable with the idea of blending emo, metal, hardcore, and punk with an ear for the atonal, the group offered a set that just didnít seem to want to end. It did, eventually.
