The doors to House of Vans didn’t open until 7:00pm last Thursday night yet fans were lined up outside waiting by 3:00pm.

Baltimore/DC-area band Turnstile opened the night to a jam-packed crowd. Vocalist Brendan Yates fed off the crowd’s energy, incorporating fans into their performance by jumping down off the stage to share the mic.

The Bouncing Souls took the stage next, playing a variety of hits spanning their twenty-five year career and inciting sing-a-longs from the crowd from beginning to end.

By the sound of the trumpets at the beginning of “New Direction”, the crowd was ready to go. Gorilla Biscuits took the stage for their first show in New York since 2011 and the stage dives didn’t stop for the remainder of the night. They’ve always had a strong influence in hardcore music and it was great to see young fans up front, knowing they were probably seeing the band for the very first time.
