I’ve seen Say Anything more times than I can count in the past 8 years. They’re one of the few bands I’ve been seeing consistently since I started going to shows regularly. The first time I threw my body off a stage onto a crowd of strangers was to Say Anything when I was 15, and that was one moment of many that solidified the fact that I wanted live music to be part of my life for a long time. I have spent the better part of the past decade loving Say Anything unconditionally (to the point of borderline obsession if we’re being honest). I am so fortunate and beyond grateful to have gotten the chance to see them perform …Is a Real Boy / …Was a Real Boy in its entirety the night after my 21st birthday. As lame and cliche as it sounds, words cannot truly express the impact this band has had on my life, and they will always hold a place in my heart that no other band can touch.

These are a just few of the many, many phone/digital camera (before smartphones.. oh god) pictures I’ve taken of Say Anything over the years.
