I Am the Avalanche at the Speakeasy on March 31

In the late '90s and the early '00s, Long Island act the Movielife seemed like the official band to like for tattooed tough dudes who just wanted a little melody sometimes. The group drew some threads from melodic hardcore but wove them mostly into melodic, sing-along pop-punk and played notoriously participatory shows for several years before finally breaking up in 2003. After a brief stint in Head Automatica, a dance-rock band made up mostly of hardcore alumni, singer Vinnie Caruana again started his own project with I Am the Avalanche. Though he's now based in Brooklyn, Caruana hasn't gotten all hipster artsy on anybody. Instead, his new five-piece continues to do what he did best before: punk-fueled power rock with big pop hooks.
