Brand New/Glassjaw, Toronto 11/21-22/09

Brand New performed two back-to-back sold out shows at the Kool Haus this weekend and I was there to witness both nights. Firstly, Glassjaw killed both nights, setting up in a rehearsal set-up, in the round, with bassist Manuel Carrero having his back to the crowd the whole night. It somehow worked, they jammed out their songs in a different way then on record and proved they were worthy of a reunion. And of course, as always, Brand New destroyed the crowd with decent set lists both night. The only real notable difference between the BN set lists would be the lack of Your Favourite Weapon the first night, made up for with the triple-YFW enslaught the second night.

Set lists for both Glassjaw and Brand New (both nights) are after the jump. More of a ‘review’ to come.
