Say Anything, Eisley, HRVRD and I the Mighty


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Sat., July 6, 6:30 p.m. 2013 All Ages


Say Anything might be the least "punk" band who identify as such, and that's really saying something when you think about how many other bands that applies to. The group's opus, ...Is a Real Boy, sounds perfect: Sonically the album is more dense than any other modern rock record I can think of, possibly with the exceptions of Weezer's Green Album and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. But the songs! When lead singer/obnoxious egoist Max Bemis isn't waxing poetic about scene politics he isn't articulate enough to effectively disassemble (which he does on at least half of ...Is a Real Boy), he hits it out of the park. Heck, "Every Man Has a Molly" was one of my favorite songs in high school (although I just listened to it for the first time in more than a year and I sorta cringed). MORGAN TROPER
