Concert Review: Transit

I want to first start by saying that Transit is a very under rated band. Transit is a small alternative rock band from Boston, Massachusetts that has been around for 10 years. In that time span, they’ve released five albums, four of their own and a split EP with Man Overboard. Their most recent album, Joyride, was released in October of 2014. Now, I know that a lot people were not fans of the latest album, but I enjoyed the album. If you get the chance, listen to the song “Too Little, Too Late.” The song surely does not disappoint with excellent lyrics, great introduction and Joe’s voice in the song is amazing.

Transit is currently touring one last time on their “I’m getting good at saying goodbye tour.” The tour is hitting up many small, intimate venues on the East Coast (more specifically in the states of Rhode Island, New York, Philadelphia, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.) Even though Transit is only touring on the East Coast, they’re posting 30-minute live streams of each show of the tour on Facebook. Even though bands occasionally live stream a concert one night online, Transit is having a live stream of their last tour every night. I love the fact that Transit is connecting their fans in an emotional way, even if many can’t go to their last tour.

I attended last night’s show at Amityville Music Hall on Long Island. What an emotional night. The last time I attended Amityville Music Hall; I was seeing Major League perform one last time before breaking up. Transit played a great blend of songs off their older albums and newer albums. The crowd was energetic, and the fans were very much heartbroken that Transit was breaking up. It’s safe to say that the show was nothing less than amazing.

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
