POZ Show Review: The Starting Line - 12/30/12

by Zack Zarrillo - Jan 7, 2013

The Starting Line wrapped up the Say It Like You Mean It ten-year anniversary tour on Sunday night in Philadelphia, the second of two Electric Factory shows slotted on the routing. After going on a hiatus in 2009 and then reemerging with a couple annual holiday shows here and there, The Starting Line revved up their fans and followers with their decision to join their peers and celebrate ten years of their most seminal record. 

The importance of Say It Like You Mean It to the kids who grew up with Drive-Thru Records is undeniable, and it’s simply awesome to see seasoned bands that have evolved and grown the artistic direction of their music give due respect to their early work in the forms of these celebration tours.

Prior to launching into the pop-punk classic, frontman/bassist Kenny Vasoli began the night’s festivities with a reading of a biting, succinct-yet-sarcastic album review of Say It Like You Mean It, written when the record came out. Now, whether it was a tongue-in-cheek nod to the record’s context in the band members’ careers or a triumphant acknowledgment of how the record has transcended both time and evolving music tastes among the fans that popularized it, no one can be certain. What was certain was the shared elation that ran through the room as soon as the vaguely noodle-y opening notes of “Up & Go” coursed over the PA. I instantly re-felt every feeling I had experienced at age 15 by the end of the first song, and there were still twelve more to go.

The house was sold out, and the people in attendance proved that despite ten years gone from their teenage angst, they still knew how to crowd surf and even accomplish a synchronized pogo-jump at the appropriate junctures. Songs like “Given the Chance” are timeless in content, especially considering Vasoli’s spoken corroboration during the set claiming how dearly he loves playing music. His passion was evident; not necessarily in his expenditure of stage energy (although we did get a couple of token posi-jumps off the drum kit out of him), but he spoke confidently and with conviction in giving his thanks for “remembering us.” And remember we all certainly did, as the room was (figuratively) in collective tears during “The Best of Me,” possibly the most cliché, anthemic, yet most widely adored song ever written. The feeling of unity was undeniable and well worth showing up as everyone unflinchingly sang “we got older, but we’re still young / we never grew out of this feeling that we won’t give up.”
