The Starting Line’s holiday show thrills a sold-out crowd

The Starting Line

What’s old is new again: That was the message sent from the sold-out crowd inside Sayreville, New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom on December 27 for the Starting Line’s annual holiday show with special guests the Movielife. The two pop-punk giants, both of whom came up through Drive-Thru Records around the same time and both of whom are testing the waters with sporadic reunion shows, thrilled the thousands of people packed in just two days after Christmas. Opening act Somos was no slouch, either, winning over plenty of new fans in the process. Substream photographer Jim Trocchio braved the weather and got into the pit—here’s what he captured.
