New York punk stalwarts Bayside celebrated their Fifteen Year Birthday Tour by blazing through the highlights of their six-album discography—from “Masterpiece” to “Pigsty.” The band hopped along to the breakneck pace of “Sick, Sick, Sick.” Frontman Anthony Raneri swung the headstock of his guitar like an ax during the ponderous rhythms of “They’re Not Horses, They’re Unicorns.” Bayside quickly transitioned from hit to hit during the 17-song set, pausing only to thank fans for helping the band reach the milestone. Raneri ditched his beloved white Les Paul to rock the mic and spin like a top during “Landing Feet First.” He later traded it for an acoustic guitar to serenade fans on “Don’t Call Me Peanut.” The band ended its set with the rambunctious “Devotion and Desire,” and fans asked the band for another 15 years by crowd surfing and singing along to the classic. ★★★★✩
