Glassjaw performed the first in a series of two “Worship And Tribute” 10th anniversary sets last night, July 07th, at the Irving Plaza in New York City, NY. The group performed the aforementioned album in full with a bonus encore that consisted of “El Mark” and “Convectuoso“ [EIS note: the same for the second night].
Judging by the show, it looks as though there continues to be no love lost with their label home Warner Bros. Records though, as the band displayed their contract with the label on the screen. Fan-filmed footage of the performance, which also included this teaser for the bands long-awaited “Live In London” DVD, can be found HERE.
Meanwhile, a new merch deal on the bands official site, Glassjaw.com promises fans access to an upcoming “special event” in Nassau County, NY. The event will take place on August 09th, 2012 with those who purchase to be notified 48 hours prior to the mystery event.
