Review: Taking Back Sunday, Every Time I Die and All Get Out @ Stage AE

Taking Back Sunday stopped by Pittsburgh’s own Stage AE the other night to have one major party on a Wednesday night.  Fellow supporting acts Every Time I Die and All Get Out had the same mindset it seemed when it came to having some fun and truly rocking out.  For a Taking Back Sunday fan though, this was definitely a show to see since their setlist was a solid mixture of older and newer songs so cover the whole bands rather large discography.  Of course that includes some of Adam’s mic swinging antics and humorous stories throughout the night.


One of the two biggest mentions of the night was how there wasn’t one moment I could honestly recollect that there wasn’t a handful of fans singing along, or how spot on the band was when it came to their set.  Every song was just so punchy and smooth at the same time which in turn tells me that this band has a lot more to offer still when it comes to playing shows and hopefully continuing to write new material in the years to come.


It was quite noticeable when Taking Back Sunday would play some older songs from one particular album (Louder Now) because the tempo of the whole performance just altered to a faster more energetic setting for everyone.  Just goes to show that there’s always at least one album that will never die off and will always be the “go to” album for setlist songs.  Even a Green Day song was played throughout the set to change things up a bit and to also keep things fresh.


Nineteen songs later, a couple of stories, and one killer performance later I can definitely say I left satisfied and had a fulfilled night that had me blaring my stereo on the way home.  It just seems that Taking Back Sunday never really lets you down after all these years as an alternative band that just keeps on keeping on.  Not a whole lot of better ways to put it.
