I had a radio show that only played bands performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
NECK DEEP – CAN’T KICK UP THE ROOTS
DO YOU LIKE POP-PUNK? Then you’re probably already going to this concert. Neck Deep is opening up for All Time Low and Sleeping with Sirens at Echostage. I used to love All Time Low but I will readily admit they are terrible, which is why they really peaked in my eyes when they named their first real album “So Wrong, It’s Right”. It’s almost like they knew. Neck Deep is kind of cute. They almost remind me of a mix between Mayday Parade and Four Year Strong. They’re incredible energetic and this song is actually very fun and catchy. I am not embarrassed to be listening to it, which is more than I can say for almost any All Time Low song I’ve ever heard. I know I sound very mean, but I’m mean to the things I love. Anyway, Neck Deep is way better than I thought they were going to be and I have no idea why this show is at Echostage, but have fun you crazy kids.
