GLASSJAW's first 30th anniversary show: See video and setlist

Post-hardcore vets played epic 24-song set in Santa Ana

Glassjaw are celebrating 30 years of "making things" with five special shows to close out 2023. Last night (December 20th), they played the first of the bunch at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California, where the Long Island post-hardcore vets ripped through a whopping 24-song(!) setlist that covered every inch of their discography.

They played large portions of their two classic albums, Worship & Tribute and Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence, five tracks off Material Control, and several other deeper cuts.

The biggest surprise of the night was when Glassjaw pulled out "Black Nurse," a song from their 2011 Coloring Book EP that they hadn't played live since 2014.

It made for an exciting start to these highly anticipated shows, and above and below you can check out video from throughout the night, as well as the full setlist, courtesy of

Glassjaw will continue the 30th anniversary festivities tonight (December 21st) in Los Angeles, and then travel back East for a December 28th gig in Chicago and then a two-night stint in Brooklyn on the 29th and 30th.

To further commemorate three decades of Glassjaw, Revolver and our sister brands BrooklynVegan and Alternative Press have teamed with the band for a deluxe photo book that includes oral history of Glassjaw as told by the people who and the places that influenced the band.

In addition, Revolver has newly pressed five of Glassjaw's greatest works to limited-edition vinyl, packaged together as The Playable Collection. Quantities of the vinyl and the book are both extremely limited, and you can order yours at Revolver's shop.
