The Appleseed Cast took to the stage Wednesday night to a sold out crowd at Johnny Brenda’s. Guitarist Taylor Holenbeck addressed the group a few times, joking about the abundance of body heat in the room; he encouraged everyone to move around, not to dance, but to embrace the heat and raise the temperature further. He then tangled himself up in strands of the venue’s iconic beads, which hang on stage. The quartet went on to play for about an hour, radiating loud, whirring walls of model post-rock sound. When guitarist/vocalist Christopher Crisci announced the last song of the night, the news was met with waves of sighs and pleads. The band left the stage, but gave into persuasion and played a rather long encore. The crowd still wanted more.
