It’s difficult to think of a band that puts on for their city harder than Every Time I Die. Over the years, ETID’s holiday shows have become bigger and bigger, and have evolved into a city wide phenomenon that can’t be ignored. The holiday shows have grown into a two day affair at Buffalo Riverworks, featuring 12 out of town bands of varying genres and two 25+ song headlining sets from Every Time I Die. The first day alone featured All Get Out, Harm’s Way, Terror, The Damned Things, Against Me!, and of course, ETID.
Thousands of fans from all over the world flocked to Buffalo over the weekend, saw all that our city has to offer, supported our businesses, and witnessed what is always one of the craziest shows of the year. I’m sure everyone in attendance is already counting down the days until next year. Check out our photos from the first night of the shows below, shot by blog photographer, Brendan O’Connor.
