Braid – No Coast

Braid and other exuberant-yet-heartbroken bands that exploded out of the Warped Tour circuit in the late ’90s/early ’00s often struggled to keep up with the demand of an ever-shifting fan base. They can’t keep cranking out teenage angst once they’ve settled down with a family and mountains of cash (or, in some cases, mountains of determination to get that cash some other way) — not realistically, right? There’s only so long you can believe someone like Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba is that sad every day of his life. At some point, the bands have to realize that they have grown up, as have their fans, and there are new challenges in life.
