Jersey were the first to take the stage. I saw them back in 2000 with Slick Shoes and Cooter (now Autopilot Off). They have greatly improved since then. Their melodies are good and their music definitely has a semblance to Rancid. They have some catchy songs, they played tight and got the crowd moving. They didn't waste too much time talking. the highlight of the set for me was "Battle's Just Begun" from their Fueled By Ramen release. They also played their new single "Saturday Night" (getting airplay on Muchmusic) and others off their album 'Generation Genocide'.
6.5/10

A small wait then came, time to check out the merch before the greatly hyped and rapidly growing band Yellowcard. - pop-punk with a violin.

They were awesome. They played lots off their new album 'Ocean Avenue' and a couple off their last effort 'One For The Kids'. Highlights for me were everything off 'Ocean Avenue' (the only album that I own by them), however, their older songs also sounded good. They were funny and got the crowd involved right off the bat. They involved the crowd in a sing-a-long and encouraged circle pits. the vioilinist did back flips, jumped around and still managed to play the notes. the lead singer has a great voice and I was impressed at how well their songs came off, sounding very much like the album. this band has great energy and a lot of talent. Check them out.
9/10

After this came Eve 6, remembering them from a Big Shiney Tunes Comp about 7 years ago. They opened with "Amphetamines" a good pop-punk track, similar somewhat to Green Day. They played all their well-known songs including 'Promise', and several off their new album. Overall, Eve 6, did not seem to fit with the lineup. the style was definitely slower and I was unable to fully get into it. that said, they played a loud, tight set and the singer's voice was strong and on-key. They did not have the energy of yellowcard, but they are a cool band live and obviously seasoned veterans of the touring gig.
7.5/10

Overall a good show. Yellowcard was the highlight for me, but the other bands also rocked.

Yellowcard has one of the best live shows out there!!! so don't talk shit if you've never been to one!!!
the only one's who suck are you pussy heads who think your too punk for yc but have never even heard of their other songz!!!!

People from california shouldnt be talking shit cause your ratio of gay to straight people is way up there above any other state from the east coast.

I must say I don't like the new "sound" Jersey's been developing, it sounds so common, like quite a few of the bands out there now.
Their old stuff was where it's at!
Battle's just Begun CD could have been huge, but the recording quality isn't the greatest. Now they sound like all the other lame ass bands!

someone from "cali" shouldn't talk shit on stupid states.

Why doesn't the east coast and midwest go away? I've been praying all my life, but god wont do it. Fuhgeddaboutit! God I hate every single state that is not california. Even nor cal is lame as fuck. America is full of retards and they are highly concentrated in jersey. Maybe thats where their queen lives or something.

yellowcard i just don't understand the hype. i think they are so bad. trying way to hard. they are trying something different with the violin, but it just does not work in their case. i am not a fan.

im from jerseys hometown of burlington too and i say there a good ska punk band so fuck off cause they dont sound anything like those shitty posers good charlotte. regardless, all the other bands at that show are shitty poser bands and jersey should get a good beating for playing with them.

Eve 6 is good, in my mind, for two reasons, neither of whihch have anything to do with them as a band or their music:

1. The lead singer wore a RATT t-shirt in one of their videos.

2. The lead singer often wears fishnet stockings on his arms underneath t-shirts.

"Hey, Ashton, that's not an eve 6 song, it's the equally shitty third eye blind!"

yes, and that was the reason why i said it was third eye blind.

oops, i thought you were talking to bsd. You're comment was still stupid though, read ashton's comment again.

Actually that was an eve 6 song...

Haha I can't believe you people actually went to this show. Did your parents know what kind of show they were dropping you off at? If you told them who was playing I don't think they would let you go. Moms and pops'd be like, "A fucking violin? No child of mine is going to a show like that! I have no son/daughter! You're grounded!" Stupid Cunts

It seems like it would be extremely boring to read a review with no emotion or personality behind it. Behold, a review of all fact:

"The crowd liked Jersey. They played for 27 minutes. The Guitarist broke a string."

"Yellowcard has a violin. That makes them different and original. They are really douche bags."

"Eve 6 is bad for you. If you clicked on this review looking for Eve 6, you should be shot, multiple times."

That was actually more fun than I gave credit to. Nevermind, game on for that.

Good one, BSD!

Haha I like Eve 6s' song where he talks about his girlfriend having the clap, or at least that's what I think it is...

"Don't touch my girl, or you're gonna feel the burn!"

encouraging circle pits = synchronized jumping = showing off by doing backflips = all bad. Oh yea, so is Eve 6.
