I Am the Avalanche at Speakeasy Lounge March 31
In the late '90s and early '00s, Long Island act the Movielife seemed to be the official band for tough, tattooed dudes in the mood for a little melody.
The group borrowed from melodic hardcore while weaving that style into melodic, sing-along pop-punk. And for several years, the band played notoriously participatory shows before finally breaking up in 2003. Then after a brief stint in Head Automatica, a dance-rock outfit made up mostly of hardcore alumni, former Movielife singer Vinnie Caruana started another project, I Am the Avalanche.
Though he's now based in Brooklyn, Caruana hasn't gotten all artsy. Instead, his new five-piece continues to do what he always did best: punk-fueled power rock with big pop hooks.
I Am the Avalanche
