I said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s 2006. In 2015 Motion City Soundtrack played the Fillmore Silver Spring. In 2015 Taking Back Sunday and Cold War Kids played sold out shows at 9:30 Club. In 2015 Say Anything played Baltimore Soundstage but neglected to play “Alive with the Glory of Love.” Fall Out Boy is still touring. Jack’s Mannequin is touring for Everything in Transit’s 10 year anniversary tour in January. All of those pop punk and/or emo bands are playing ten year anniversary shows. I’m getting a chance to be nostalgic about all of the bad pop punk and/or emo I used to love.
The Academy Is… singer William Beckett said that they released the album in 2005, thinking it wasn’t going to do much. They played Almost Here in its entirety at 9:30 Club to 16-year-old girls who waited outside since 10 a.m. for a not sold out show.
