"Baddest Ass Party Crashers of All Time"

The fine young Republican Asking Autumn (arguably Christian conspirators) opened the basement festivities with an excellent rendition of a style that I've found to be the most popular of the touring "independent" acts of late. Up-tempo predominantly, with variations of a breakdown that slows the tune to clean guitar and a depressing vocal feature. JD had played their demo earlier and they kicked off the jams accurately and well.

The Scaries Pounded out their obviously-refined set next. I particularly enjoyed their set based on the sheer tightness of it. They've been played together for years, and it showed brilliantly. The energy of the guitarist, reminiscent of Hot Water Music, sealed the deal. A great band.

However, Farewell to Fashion is all that will be remembered on default of the blasted brain-cells from the onslaught of gyrations throughout their set. The highlight of all local shows I've seen for months. Having not been on the original lineup and closing the night was an example of the dominant presence they possess with their mutant we-rock-you-harder-than-anyone-since-Planes-Mistaken-for-Stars style. Fantastic combination of aggressive music with powerful vocals. The flailing guitars added beautifully to the scary yet somehow welcoming chaos. A toast to Farewell to Fashion and whatever bastardly northwestern winds that brought them up here.

Hanging out for pizza was an amazing end to the already excellent night. A intimidatingly large series thank yous go out to JD and Kerry for this event. - The Olive Branch Presents

Farewell to Fashion learned early on that music is all about the passion, intensity, honesty with which songs are written and played. The best compliments Farewell to Fashion have received after playing live shows go something like this: "I had a ton of fun listening to and watching you guys!" They're right -- Farewell to Fashion are guys. But they're also right about the fun. The fun may be the most important thing to these boys. That's not to say they're careless in their musicianship. They take songwriting and performing seriously. But if people don't enjoy hearing and seeing your craft, then what's the point of doing it?

When you see Farewell to Fashion live, you can expect to smile a lot. You know how sometimes it's enjoyable just to watch somebody do something they enjoy and they're good at? That's part of what will make you smile. The intensity these boys bring is fierce, and sometimes chaotic. But you'll also find yourself tapping your toes, swaying your hips, and/or pounding your feet along to the rhythm. Fun. You should have it, and these boys want to help.

Beginning in late '01, Farewell to Fashion has toured the country and had the honor of sharing the stage with some amazing bands, including Taking Back Sunday, mewithoutYou, Norma Jean, Element 101, and Beloved to name a few. Through many lineup changes, Chris, Chad, Gary and Trey remain the core of the band, and their goal is to bring rock & roll & grins to as many people/faces as possible...and to make lots of friends along the way.
