Verbose punk acts pack Summit Music Hall
Say Anything and Motion City Soundtrack brought their co-headlining tour to Denver Saturday, showcasing both the power of the acts' wordy approach to pop-punk and the coolness that is the new Summit Music Hall.
The arguably less-popular Say Anything took the headlining slot, with charmingly spastic frontman Max Bemis working overtime to thrill the capacity crowd. The keyboard-heavy Motion City Soundtrack threw down rollicking, album-perfect versions of cult hits including "L.G. Fuad" and "My Favorite Accident."
Emo stalwarts Saves the Day played a full set of their own (inlcuding the almost-hit "At Your Funeral") and drew massive props from the other bands on the bill. Openers Valencia brought a heavy dose of power pop with a distinct Jonas Brothers-gone-bad feel.
