Note: I'm very aware that Recover and Armor For Sleep were on this tour but I left after Say Anything because I don't like them (sue me).

First of all, my best friend and I might possibly qualify as brain dead. She came to pick me up at four o' clock for our drive into Baltimore when the doors opened at six. Now, Baltimore is only thirty minutes from where we live, and it took us forty-five minutes to get to the Ottobar. And as we're standing outside in the cold in an alley for an hour and a half she constantly asked me "Why didn't you say anything about how weird it was about us leaving so early?" What can I say Linda? I'm just an idiot. Fortunately, the two of us were able to huddle together and sing Say Anything songs to keep the spirits up until six.

Once the doors opened I scurried to the bathroom while she got us a spot in the very front (which turned out to be a very cool move). And as people slowly filed in, Chase Pagan began his set. Now, I had thought Chase Pagan was some sort of mediocre screamo band, but Chase turned out to be a person (as well as a two-man band). Chase did all the vocals and guitar work and he had a very skilled keyboardist named Brooks helping him on most songs. Chase never told us any of his song names, but I turned out to be very impressed by his set, making me wish I had. He has an awesome falsetto and the way he finger picks his guitar (electric and acoustic) was very awesome. The only problem with the set really was that it's kind of freaky at times, because sometimes when Chase sung, his eyes rolled back into his head and he had to stop in the middle of a song because he was unaware of time. He was forced to call his keyboardist back on stage and went right into his last song. After this he promised us that he would be returning on tour with a full band eventually, so remember the name, people, because he might be big eventually.

After this, Casper Adams and Say Anything's new tour keyboardist/guitarist got on stage and began to set up. Then the new bassist (who looks about 15) arrived as well and began helping the drummer get his stuff on stage. Throughout all this I did not see Max Bemis (not once), throughout sound checks and such and I wondered if something was wrong, but Max appeared on the left side of the stage just as the set started. He grabbed the microphone and the band jumped right into "Belt." Now, there wasn't a very big crowd for Chase Pagan, but in the time he played to the time Say Anything attempted to play, the room was suddenly crowded full of people I'd bet were in the 15 â?? 20 age range. Meaning EVERYONE was screaming their lungs out singing along to the song, most specifically the girl behind my best friend, who was going insane and jumped on my friend's back multiple times. After the show she told me she felt violated.

The atmosphere in the room looked electric, and when I first listened to Say Anything on the CD I always thought, "This is great but I wonder if their live show suffers at allâ?¦" My God was I wrong. Everyone in Say Anything is just as capable a musician as Bemis (who did just about all the instrument work on their debut CD except drums) is. And as he flailed around in his orange T-shirt that read "I am perfect" and a hundred kids shouting at him "So what say you?! And all your friends! Step up to my friends! In the alley tonight!" I realized that Jason Tate was fucking right. Again. And I hate agreeing with him oh so much but seriously guysâ?¦if you're not with Say Anything by now, I just don't know what's wrong with you.

After playing "Woe" and "The Futile" (again with the crowd shouting along to every lyric) Max got his guitar from the keyboardist and said "I'm gonna play guitar now guys." Cheers for "Admit It" immediately began filing in but Casper Adams silenced them by asking "Admit what? That we're your favorite fucking band?" A resounding "Hell yeah!" followed. The band went into "Slowly Through A Vector" and then asked us if they wanted us to play one more song or two more and the room screamed for two. So they played "Spider Song" and then "Alive With The Glory Of Love" for the first time on tour, once again with all the adolescents in the room screaming along.

Again, it pains me to agree with Jason Tate, but I'm probably just as orgasmic about this band as he is. And as my friend and I filed into the merch line and shook Max's hand we agreed that it was easily one of the best sets we'd ever seen live. And now I find Mr. Bemis' shirt very fitting because at least in the ways of what people are calling "Pop Punk/Emo" go, Say Anything is in fact perfect.

Say Anything has done it for me since my junior year of high school way back in 2002. This band is gonna make it to the top, I guarantee it- so jump on quick!

benz (July 11, 2005)

I should not like Say Anything. By all means, I do not like bands that sound like Say Anything.

But I do. Say Anything just has a great approach to the whole emo/punk sound.

i saw armor for sleep a few months ago and they suck so bad live its not funny. not to mention their new cd sucks, taking all they had original about them and throwing out the window to be just another scene band....
and say anything is the shit. Max is down to earth and in your face. people just hate on the music because its not just another scene band and has different styles and lyrics that contain more then heartbreak..
the album is genious and more complex then armor for sleep will ever be....
and moving slowly though a vector is a great song, its one of my favorites just took a while to get there... the show me what you got part is one of the best on the album.

and seriously never even speak of recover, lame lame band.

chase pagan is a great folkish singer. i'm a big fan of his riffs they are very catchy yet original...

hate say anything? oh your just too cool to be scene huh.

Nice "low self-esteem" jab. Always difficult to pull off.

It wasn't grammar. It was punctuation. And the guy who initially brought it up, points out that he is trying to separate himself from the Grammar Goblins this site can bring out.

You say "obviously that's not how it was meant to be read," but judging by the first handful of responses, it actually wasn't obvious to some people.

It's also not how it is chanted. Have you heard the song? I totally hear a question mark in there at the end.... because .... IT'S A FUCKING QUESTION AND THAT'S WHERE ONE BELONGS.

You don't need to attack Marlon anymore with your "Anybody with mediocre intelligence can recognize that if you put two and two together, it spells out : 'So what say you and all your friends stand up to my friends in the alley tonight?' " business, because it wasn't immediately recognized.

Taken out of context it STILL means something. Of coure it does. And whether or not it is a "great thought" is besides the point. It is a thought. And it can be great. Its simplicity does not undermine its possibility of greatness, though that is not in question.

You say that he is not taking away from the meaning because if you've heard the song, you know what is being said. That's not true. If I say that Hamlet kills his father-in-law because he ate a lot of food and danced poorly, you would know that it's because Claudius killed the King of Denmark and that the sweet prince is somewhat insane because you've seen or read it, and you know what it's "about." But that doesn't mean that what I've said shouldn't be held accountable for misrepresenting what happens. And if you haven't read Hamlet, you'd be somewhat confused.

measureconnectcreate (March 1, 2005)

I just want to reply to the low-self esteem infused attempt at correcting the "grammar" of "So what say you?! And all you friends! Stand up to my friends! In the alley tonight!" or however it was written. Look, obviously thats not how it is meant to be read. You have to be a complete idiot to not recognize this. However, that is how it is chanted: as fragments. These fragments produce a coherent thought, true, but they are still fragments. Anybody with mediocre intelligence can recognize that if you put two and two together, it spells out : "So what say you and all your friends stand up to my friends in the alley tonight?" Taken out of context, this does not even mean anything. It is not some great thought ; so, by spelling it out, he is not taking away from the meaning because if you have heard the song, you know what is being said and if you haven't, it doesn't matter.

shit.

well. okay. you definitely have me there. i have, like, 6 weird al albums (on tape) and while i think he's pretty goddamn cool, it just wouldn't be a name that comes off the tip of my tongue.

but. he rocks out. he's somewhat clever. he does what he wants to do. and he's pretty talented.

and that's something to be proud of.

people giving marlon shit for leavign early should chillax.

there were probably other things to do. like eat some triscuits. or watch goof troop. why waste a couple of hours hanging around watching some bands you don't want to see so that you can comment on them for other people's amusement online?

it's like if i watched some nickelodeon over the weekend, but decided to go out for some slush puppies after roundhouse and i told the kids in homeroom who don't have cable about the shows i watched and they were like "wtf, mate? what about the midnight society?"

we benefit from the bands whose sets were reviewed, regardless of muddled lyrics vis-a-vis misused punctuation, and what we were told about was more than nothing, because it was something.

did not watch the entire SNICK lineup, but you learned something about clarissa and that's something that you or those interested in clarissa can appreciate. if you are a ren & stimpy fan, sorry you didn't get to hear about your show, but i had some frozen flavored slush to drink, may you live well.

Anonymous (February 28, 2005)

say anything, how fitting. this shit pisses me off. For the review I have nothing new to say. but from what I can tell punctuation and cocksucking are the only things anyone is interested in here so I might as well go ahead.
MArlon, I don't care for the way you write and yes, leaving in the middle of a show makes the review incomplete. To be honest I don't know anything about this band and I could really care less about the whole world's review of your review. but anyway besides this crap, you bring all this shit upon yourself because you let people walk all over you just so you aren't alone. You need to make (more) real friends. I don't know what to tell you about how to go about doing that; you're a really awkward person and it seems like theres a lot you need to become aware of about yourself and life in general, but we're all growing. A start might be to look a little harder and see who's saying something to you and who's trying not to say something. Just work with what you've got but don't take it seriously. Score is for the reviewer figuring out why he has so many rude ignorant comments that have nothing to do with this concert.

Anonymous (February 27, 2005)

who the hell writes about their trips to the restroom in a review, especially if there wasnt an intresting story and they use the word scurry to describe it. You should have stayed for the whole show and reviewed all the bands not just the ones you like, show some respect to the bands and stay. You don't have any great writing talents. Your word choices were poor, for example your use of orgasmic was awkward. Also your peice was very dull and was difficult to read all the way through, basically you need to go sit in a corrner feeling sorry for yourself and your pathetic life.

I really can't vouch for the anonymous commenters, but as far as reviews, news, and staff, we're lightyears ahead. AP posts about 1 new review a week, we do 20. And out of those new reviews, the only good ones are from that Ryan kid, who's a really talented writer. And what was the last time you saw us post news on who updated their myspace page? Let's be honest about this.

Marlon,

1. This site is no different than absolutepunk so anyone who says posers should go there is a fucking retard.

2. Armor For Sleep's new record is ten times better than their last one so yes they did get better.

3. You're still a god damned idiot because you think that because I like them that I am a poser and that my music tastes suck. You know nothing about me. You're the lose who spends all his time on a message board arguing over punctuation.

Fucking idiot.

Marlon (February 27, 2005)

The guy that wrote this is a god damn idiot. You can't give a show like this a good rating if you missed half of it. Especially when you missed the best band. What a dumbass.

Last I checked Recover and Armor for Sleep sucked. Did they suddenly start not sucking? Did I miss something? They change their entire style of song writing? Cause I don't think they have.... Honestly I don't care if you think Say Anything sucks, that's entirely up to you, but if you truly believe that those bands are better than them then I just don't care what you think because you obviously like shitty music. Why are you here? Shouldn't you be on absolute punk or something?

No one seemed to notice the glaring error the Anonymous "grammarian" made in his second post:

L is for Line and the number corresponds to the appropriate number in the four line set-up.

The difference is clear.

Your version.
L1 ?
L2
L3
L4 !

My version, the correct version:
L1
L2
L3
L4 ?

Everything you have suggested as a way to print the lyrics actually changes the meaning of the words quite drastically. You seem to say that you know what the song is saying, yet you somehow continue to make some fundamental errors which highlight a separation between you and the text, which, quite simply, leads me to believe that you are either oblivious to the English language or very stubborn.

But, in the end, you attack me for bringing it up and saying that it doesn;t matter, mocking my concern. Yet that seems to me like a really cheap cop-out.

Sure. Call it "nitpicky." But that's just lame to say, because not only does your adaption change the meaning of the words (and I said that, while you probably don't pay attention to words, it does, nonetheless, make a difference for those of us who are connected through languag), but you also chose to write at least a handful of responses arguing about the subject before you wrote it off, showing that it was a concern for you until you realized that you were wrong and instead of conceding you decided to try to invalidate the discussion.

That'sthe sign of a weasel, you assclown.

May the righteous triumph....

It's expressing one thing.

"What say you and all your friends step up to my friends in the alley tonight?"

As in... I propose that you and your "crew" take on my friends in a big-ass rumble (SE Hinton style). What do you think of that proposition?

There is no question until after the specifics of what is happening and when.

What do you think about the following: you and all your friends step up to my friends in the alley tonight?

What say _____ (the event, which is "you and all your friends step up to miy friends") ____ in the alley tonight?

So, if you want to break it into four lines and you want to keep the intended meaning... it's

What say you (Angry mob repeat)
And all your friends (Angry mob repeat)
Step up to my friends (Angry Mob: My friends!)
In the alley tonight?

Very different from "â??So what say you?! And all your friends! Step up to my friends! In the alley tonight!""

as for all of you bitching about Max being a jerk, have you ever actually READ his LYRICS? he spells it out pretty clearly that he's an asshole in every song on there, about fucking random girls and using them (spidersong) to sitting around smoking weed. the dudes out of his mind and an asshole, what you expect a guy who wrote that album to be some down to earth nice guy?

musicians, while cool when they are nice and friendly, are NOT YOUR FRIENDS. they have no obligation to sign your shit, talk to you, make out w/ your girlfriend or whatever, thats all optional. if they put on a good show and make good cd's you can't expect more. yea its nice when they drink w/ you, suck your dick, whatever, but get the fuck over it.

Anonymous (February 25, 2005)

Being born in Honduras does not mean anything. Look. You're punctuation and everything was fine, until you did the lyrics. All I am saying is that the way you have written them, which is obviously not a typographical error, shows that you don't know what or how words and groups of words are pieced together to express cohesive thoughts in lyrical form.

And to the someone who said that Marlon was just writing them like they're sung.... do you realize how completely preposterous that is? Have you heard the song? If you knew what the words meant, you would realize that it is one line and one question, expressing one thing.

Complain about Bemis all you want. You can say he writes shitty songs. But, at least he knows how to convery that shittiness in his shitty songs with words and puncuation.

Fuck you. Embrace it.

Putting the punk back into punctuation.

Score for how stuck up these posers are.

These fuckers must be the most egotistical people on the planet. They don't deserve fans. They don't deserve to live, really, but that can't be helped until they overdose or something.

"Admit what? That we're your favorite fucking band?" Just play the fucking song, asshole. We don't give a shit about pumping up your fucking ego. Stage banter sucks, and it's even worse when it's an asshole up there.

Don't even argue with me. My friend and I went to this same concert, waved at Bemis when we saw him outside, and the asshole flicked us off. What the hell is that? Had I not been so shocked, I would've yelled "Go get singing lessons, motherfucker!" I've never been a fan of Say Anything (Vocals? More like CRAP), but my friend was, and she was heartbroken. Now I can easily say I hate them with all of my heart.

Also, shut up about the lyrics. Marlon was just writing them like they're sung. I doubt Bemis even knows what fucking punctuation is. God, what a douche.

No-talent, asshole hacks.

Just look at this punctuation. This is totally different from all of the whorish picky grammar goblin shit that goes on on this site. Your questions marks, exclamation points, and new sentences show that you actually have no fucking idea what the lyrics are saying. Not that kids pay attention or know what they're shouting along to and repeating, but come on.... don't you even notice his inflection? It's one line. It's one question.

I must say, I love Say Anything and think they completely live up to the hype. I think Bemis is a genious, especially considering he wrote their album when he was 19.

and to the guy below who asked 'what song has show me what you got 70 times in it?' I will confirm that yes, that song does suck, yes the 'show me what you got' is annoying. Its the worst song on his cd, i've skipped it since my first listen. other than that, the CD is amazing.

score is for huddling together & singing Say Anything songs in an alley by The Ottobar. weiner.

It was cold as piss! And we were there for an hour and 15 minutes and she didn't know any Against Me! songs.

they've played "Alive With The Glory Of Love" live before.

Probablly but they told us they hadn't yet on this tour. They probablly lied but it was still cool

Say Anything sounds like the soundtrack to a goofy, Farelly brothers movie. Meaning Jason Tate is wrong.

honestly, this band is overrated as fuck. Awful vocals. This shit is plain ridiculous and the "taboo" lyrics everyone's always up on...fucking blow. Fuck say anything, fo sho'.

Score is for Say Anything. I saw them in November and felt aurally raped. There was no redeeming quality about this band at all, and the fact that this Max guy looks/moves/sounds exactly like Will Ferrel does nothing to help their case.

I remember him demanding that everyone move closer to the stage, which is a bad idea if you're the first band on the bill and, oh yeah, you suck. I also remember hearing "Ha ha ha, show me what you got" about seventy times. What song is that? It was horrible.

In conclusion, this was seriously the worst band I have ever seen.
