Knapsack: Show Preview

Jonathan Weiner

Dwelling in San Francisco today are entire swaths of thirty-somethings who remember a time when "emo" wasn't a dirty word; when you could like hardcore and have feelings at the same time; and when the world was spoiled rotten with bands of slightly nerdy, relentlessly sensitive boys. Most of those thirty-somethings will no doubt be showing up for this: the first night of Knapsack's long-awaited reunion tour. The California outfit's effortless, ahem, knack for invigorating melodies, quiet-loud dynamics, passionate vocals, and intimate storytelling means Knapsack remains much-adored and missed to this day. It's been 15 years since the band toured the U.S. and there are only five dates on this run — we suggest you catch one while you can.
