Supported by Sunny Day Real Estate, Glassjaw, Motion City Soundtrack and Rx Bandits.
All the times were changed with very little noticed and Rx Bandits started an hour before doors were due to open so I missed them, slightly bummed. Motion City Soundtrack aren't my thing.
Glassjaw played a much shorter and more muted set than at Soundwave but they were really good tonight, I really enjoyed this one, hope they come back one day for a full tour with a crowd that's a bit more energetic and a lengthier set. The crowd just wasn't what you expected from a Glassjaw gig. I share the sentiments of "We waited 10 years for this" but getting negative doesn't help, what they brought was awesome.

Sunny Day Real Estate fucking owned this show. They destroyed, an amazing set, absolute perfection. Not a single flaw. It wasn't until much later that someone pointed out that the set was only 45mins long, and then realise they didn't care because it was so immensely satisfying, also features the first Song #9 in about 17 years. I'm glad this band exists.

I wrote very highly of Jimmy Eat World at Soundwave, and I got what I expected, they weren't quite that at this show. The set sorta dragged on in the centre and there was lots of new material (though the younger audience members loved it) so I was a bit lost, but they still had moments of utter greatness. It was good they did swap the setlist up so much from Soundwave, especially playing Goodbye Sky Harbour.
