What better way to start to say goodbye to 2016 than with a set of glowing holiday trees and some great music? I can’t think of any.

Rounding out their last set of the year, Four Year Strong took the stage in Worcester, MA for a hometown show on December 30th. Even amidst a hectic holiday season, the Palladium was packed for the holiday rock show – a tradition I’m sure Worcester will see back next year. Even Santa was there, making a couple brief appearances on stage during the evening to help rescue mic cords that threatened be a tangled mess (like headphones you just pulled out of your pocket) for multiple vocalist visits to the crowd. Sharing the stage for the annual holiday rock show included Vanna, Shipwreck A.D., Great American Ghost, Trophy Wives, and Dopeghost.

With this year marking the 10th year anniversary of Rise or Die and a European tour on the horizon, it will be exciting to see what 2017 has in store for Four Year Strong.
