The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news



Blair Shehan, Colby Mancasola, Sergie Loobkoff, and Edward Breckenridge are from Davis, CA. Together, they make up the band, Knapsack. Since knapsack‘s inception in 1994 they have worked hard to solidify their place in the music scene. During their time together they have helped establish a new genre of music and influenced a group of younger bands that have recently gained attention. Nevertheless, even while being tagged “Emo Core” and being a part of the post-hardcore scene from the beginning, they have always been outside of the boundaries of the Emo sound and have many varied influences to their music. “I don’t like to call what we do ’emo core’” states singer/guitarists/songwriter Blair Shehan, “I think we make dark, hard-rocking music with a hook and varied dynamics.

Good or bad songwriting is good or bad songwriting silly category names aside”. knapsack has always placed quality songwriting above everything else.” Don’t worry though, there’s still enough of the gut wrenching vocals and driving hooks to convince even the most jaded listener to accept what their many fans already know that this is one of the most exhilarating rock bands out there today.
