“Jesse Ahern opened the night with a nearly 35-minute acoustic performance, which is the opposite of what you might expect to see at a punk rock show. However, the Massachusetts-based singer was able to pull off a fun set that those on hand seemed to enjoy. What made things more fun was Ahern’s ability to connect with the audience. He would tell stories about his career and get the crowd involved with quips here and there in between songs. Those on hand responded well as the opener did his job and got the crowd revved up and ready for the rest of the night. ” - Zach Birdsong
“Listening to Ahern's last two EPs it's clear he's really settled into a sound of his own, although influences like his beloved Clash or early Johnny Cash are evident. On the 2018 EP his working-class identity shines through on “What's Wrong" especially since its first line is "'What's wrong with a picket line..." and it is the kind of insistent rocker that allows no escape. The stark Americana of "On Our Own" is another portrayal of common folk.” - Jay Miller
