Bayside - Live Show Review

New York-based pop punk band Bayside has been rocking the alternative scene for nearly twenty years now. Since the beginning, their discography has been a refreshing mix of punchy, aggressive songs and quieter, more introspective ones, always delivering the same honesty and raw emotion from album to album.


This past year, the band has really focused their efforts on the acoustic side of their genre, releasing a second volume of acoustic tracks (mostly reimaginings of fan favorites, plus a new powerful and poignant song, “It Don’t Exist”) and embarking on their first-ever acoustic tour. It was only fitting that they make a stop at The Met, a small city venue known for its intimacy and chill vibe.


Lead guitarist Jack O’Shea, during a pause in the band’s set, told the crowd how exciting it was for Bayside to be doing things a little differently from the norm. “This is something new for us,” he said of their full-band acoustic performances, “It’s really exciting.” O’Shea and the rest of the band--Anthony Raneri (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Nick Ghanbarian (bass), and Chris Guglielmo (drums)--display a clear love and passion for what they do, and the music they’ve made together over the years. The expressions of pure joy on their faces as they moved through their hour-plus set made it all the more intimate.


They kicked off the night with “Moceanu,” off their 2008 album Shudder. Their set also featured “It Don’t Exist” and two of their most-loved melancholy songs, “Transitive Property” and “Don’t Call Me Peanut,” to which every loyal fan in the room sang along.


It may have been a new experience for the band, but Bayside gave their fans--many of whom had seen them live before--as memorable a night as they have been for the past eighteen years. At this point, it’s safe to say they’ll be supported no matter what path they choose to take next.
