Silverstein, As Cities Burn Bringing 2000s Screamo Vibes Back to San Antonio


  • Facebook, Silverstein

Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Silverstein has been a well-known name in the punk and hardcore world since the early 2000s. Not just because of their solid songwriting and musicianship, but because of their sheer longevity in the genre. For a group that survived the god-awful label of “screamo” (seriously, what was that?), Silverstein managed to stay ahead of the pack, producing heavy, emotional tracks without sounding like they were ripping off every other band in the genre.

Following a short stint on the final traveling Vans Warped Tour this summer, the band is ready to embark on the 15-year anniversary tour of their 2003 debut album When Broken Is Easily Fixed. The band will be playing the record from front to back — along with a set of their greatest hits. This tour will be joined by Hawthorne Heights, As Cities Burn, and Capstan.

$20-$25, Wed Nov. 28, 7pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.,
