Braid

Braid Live


Braid is a band that should need no introduction. But for some reason, it seems that in the 90's Chicago post-hardcore/emo scene Braid's influence and impact has taken a back seat to bands like Cap'n Jazz, The Promise Ring, and American Football. But Bob Nanna and Chris Broach's songwriting shouldn't be ignored: they're like the....Richards/Jagger, or Lennon/McCartney of emo. Ok, maybe that was taking it too far. Just at least download Frame and Canvas and you'll see what I mean.
