Last Wednesday I got a chance to see Texas Is the Reason at Saint Vitus. Texas Is the Reason is one of the legendary 90’s Emo band. This band was only around for three years and came back for multiple reunions. The day prior to this show Texas came back to play their album Do You Know Who You Are? in full for the 20th anniversary of its release. The show I went to was only added on last minute. Both New York shows were sold out. The reason for the reunion is that they scheduled to play at a memorial show for the passing of Jon Bunch (Sense Field, Further Seems Forever) in California. There was no opener for either show.
Texas Is the Reason started to play and the place erupted. Everyone was singing along to every song. They played over an hour worth of music and they truly seemed appreciate about the fans that were there. Every song they played sounded great and they were so tight. There a little bit of pit action but that stop. There were two crowd surfers but they did not make it too the stage. I was expecting this crowd to go off but they seemed pretty laid back. I was surprise that the crowd different really go off. Overall this set was great and Texas Is the Reason is a great live band. I found it really cool they wanted to play a 200 cap venue two days rather than playing a bigger venue. I am very glad that I got a chance to see this legendary band. Hopefully if they come back again I would love to see them again.
