Old school meets new school at New Found Glory show

by Paul Sheets - SGN Contributing Writer

New Found Glory
March 11
Showbox Market


On March 11, the doors opened at 6:30 p.m. for New Found Glory's all-ages show at the Showbox Market and the long line of fans began to filter in. Tickets were scanned and patrons chose their spots on the floor or meandered up to the bar.

An hour later, Fireworks, a pop-punk group out of Detroit, took the stage for 30 minutes. The quintet sounded a bit like a New Found Glory progeny and belted out a pretty good opening set that got the crowd pumped.

After a short intermission, Huntington Beach natives Hellogoodbye began their set. The fun-loving group of 20-somethings were well received as they delivered electro-indie sing-alongs like "Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn" and "Here (In Your Arms)."

Next up was Saves The Day, lead singer Chris Conley's new lineup. There was a definite shift in energy at this point. Saves The Day, which made a big splash in the emo music scene in the '90s, has a lot of cult followers and it became evident as die-hard fans sang along to "Holly Hox, Forget Me Nots" with their hands in the air. Even with Conley recruiting all new members in 2009, there was no change to the tracks that made them famous and their seemingly polished sound. If you closed your eyes, it felt almost like the first time you heard the band.

Headliners New Found Glory took the stage at half-past 10 amid a frenzy of screams. But there was no new glory here as the tour, which kicked off early this year, was to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band's self-titled second studio album. There were a myriad of fans of all ages at the show, from 16 to 35 - from fans who've been rocking out to them since their conception to youngsters with a bit of a retro taste to their three-chord-loving. Never missing a beat, the group hammered out hits like "Dressed to Kill" and "Hit or Miss."

It was a great night of music with a nice fusion of old- and new-school sound in a very intimate venue.
