Before Say Anything takes the stage, you might want to say hello to the bouncers and ask if a medical team is standing by. At the very least, make sure the bouncers have cell phones to dial 9-1-1.
Even though Say Anything has been around since 2000, their fans usually start moshing and crowd surfing as soon as the band plays their very first chord.
Just because you’re at a Say Anything concert doesn’t mean you have to mosh or crowd surf. If you’re on the floor, and near the stage, you’ll want to be aware of flying body parts.
The moshing and crowd surfing make a Say Anything tour stop attractive to both old and young fans.
The old fans can stand back, listen to the great music, watch, and reminisce. The younger set can burn off excess energy in the pit.
How Is Max Bemis In Concert?
Max Bemis is Say Anything. He’s the band’s only constant member and principal songwriter.
When he’s sober (there are times when he’s too intoxicated to perform), Bemis is a charismatic performer. He brings a lot of energy to the stage, interacts with fans, and throws that microphone around like he’s getting paid per toss.
His bandmates are equally as rambunctious. They jump off of every surface they can find and play like their life depends on it.
To slow things down, Bemis will grab his acoustic and play “I Want To Know Your Plans.” When he does don’t think it’s time to go grab a beer. It’s actually an occasion to sing-a-long.
Does Bemis Sing All The Songs?
While it may seem a little odd to ask if the lead vocalist sings all of his band’s songs, this is actually a good question.
In the recording studio, Say Anything employs a lot of guest singers. It’s natural to ask who sings those parts when the band performs live?
Well, Bemis sings those parts (after all her wrote the songs). His bandmates help by singing backup, but Bemis does all the heavy lifting.
What Songs Do Say Anything Perform In Concert?
Setlists change from tour to tour but if you have Say Anything tickets expect to hear “Belt,” “Alive With The Glory Of Love,” “Every Man Has A Molly,” “The Futile,” “An Orgy of Critics.” and “Wow, I Can Get Sexual To.”
