The Paramount Theater, Huntington NY
Getting the night started before Glassjaw took to The Paramount Stage was iconic hardcore band The Cro-Mags.
Lead vocalist, John Joseph, still has the energy he did in his 20s, running around the stage and channeling H.R. from Bad Brains fame in his screams and movements. As a 9-time Ironman and spiritual vegan, it was no surprise to see that vigor so prominently on display!
Lending his talents on bass and never disappointing was frequent guest bass player, Craig “Ahead” Setari, from the legendary Sick of It All. On guitar is yet another NYHC legend, from the band Leeway and a member of Cro-Mags since 2002, A.J. Novello. Finally, to round out their incredible lineup is Mackie Jayson, who has been playing drums in Cro-Mags since 85’.
It was hard to top the nonstop high-octane performance of The Cro-Mags, but luckily Glassjaw was up to the task.
