SHOW ALERT: The Anniversary to play Skully’s in Columbus 9/13

Late 90’s/early 2000’s indie rock favorites The Anniversary recently reunited after breaking up (way-too-soon) over 10-years ago and are currently on tour.  They will make a stop at Skully’s in Columbus on Tuesday, 9/13 along with Thin Lips and Laura Stevenson.   
The Anniversary was somewhat lazily lumped into the “emo” era alongside labelmates The Get Up Kids and Saves The Day, but they separated themselves from the pack with two different albums during their time together.  Their debut, Designing A Nervous Breakdown was synth-heavy and emotionally-charged while their sophomore album, Your Majesty was indebted to 60’s rock.  Both albums were released on Vagrant Records, are cult classics and long out of print but are being reissued by the label on vinyl to coincide with the reunion tour.
After the band split, vocalist/guitarist Josh Berwanger went on to form The Only Children and more recently has been touring and releasing music under his own name with his band, Berwanger.  Adrianne Verhoeven (now DeLanda) also went solo under the moniker Dri and formed the psychedelic reggae band Extra Classic.
With so much nostalgia in the air these days, The Anniversary’s reunion tour does not reek of “cash grab” because they split way before they should have and this is as much fun for the band as it is for the fans!
