Friday Night: Say Anything at Warehouse Live

Say Anything Warehouse Live April 27, 2012

Friday night, emo/pop punk heroes Say Anything arrived in Houston at Warehouse Live, the latest in a long string of dates on this tour for their new album Anarchy, My Dear. It was a special show for the fans as well as the band, as frontman Max Bemis, a resident of Tyler (Texas), proclaimed a sense of homecoming.

In the middle of the show, he spoke not only of his wife's family being in the crowd, but of how glad he was to be at home and able to see everyone -- even his dog, whom he dedicated a song to.

Of course, Bemis and his band were there for more than just a visit. They were there to play. For an hour and a half, they did just that. In fact, they played their asses off. Bemis turned 28 on April 6 and he may be looking a little bit more mature these days than when Say Anything began, but his skills as a singer and a performer are unabated.
