Shorewood Legion Hall
This Day & Age
The Box Social
I will hopefully be at this show. Jeremy set it up so that's cool. It's going to be a good show.
If anyone wants to come with let me know.

It's just the beginning.
||[17 Apr 2005|06:56pm]
This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. And obviously I wasn't at the show or really listen to that particular band. I just don't get how people can get that violent over something that simple. Then they all get pissed off about war and what not. Come on now. I'm just pissed off I guess by some people's actions. It was uncalled for. Some people are fucking morons.
||[17 Apr 2005|03:06pm]
Why can't shows go back to how they used to be?
||[04 Apr 2005|10:06pm]
I'm sick and tired of fake people. Sick of people talking shit about everyone else. Let alone people they call their FRIENDS. If they were your fucking friends why would you be talking shit about them? I don't understand it. I see it everywhere. Why can't people just be nice? Why can't they be fucking respectful. NO they can't. No one is ever good enough for anyone. Either someones too FAT or too SKINNY or too UGLY or too ANYTHING. It's ridiculous. People are so mean. I get made fun of by people I don't even know, and by people I THOUGHT were my friends. HA. And I know I'm not the only person this has ever happened to. I'm just sick of it. I'm sick of being walked on by everyone. I've seen it all too much. On a personal level too, and I'm not putting up with it anymore.
|MUSIC UPDATE FROM STACY
||[14 Mar 2005|04:48am]
It's very sad to announce this:
Ladies and gentlemen, the rumors are true. After ten years, close to a hundred recorded songs and several trips around the world, The Get Up Kids will be playing their last shows this summer. We're celebrating the release of our as-of-yet-untitled live record and we're coming around one final time. We'll be playing gigs in the west, in the east and in the middle of the US. Our very last show will be in Kansas City, MO (our hometown) Fourth of July weekend 2005.
As a group we'd like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us over the years. Whether we slept on your floor in '97 or you drove all the way to Lawrence to see us play in '05, we are forever grateful. We feel it's best to let the last ten years speak as a document for what the band was. We can look back and say that we are proud of everything that we accomplished. In the end, we will always remember this as a good time; we hope that you remember it that way too.
See you this summer,
The Get Up Kids
:( They are coming to IL both June 9th and 10th I want to go to both, will anyone come with me?
Some music updates..
The Early November has a new demo out on purevolume called Decoration.
It's not bad. They also posted a demo version of Every Night's Another Story (From 2001) They still have the newer demo Five Years up too. Their new cd should be out mid this year.
Also Jamison Parker should have a new song from their upcoming cd Sleepwalker up on their purevolume site today called Slow Suicide. http://www.purevolume.com/jamisonparker
An Angle has a new song called Green Water on purevolume, which is from his upcoming cd We Can Breathe Under Alcohol. If you like Bright Eyes you will most likely like this guy too. http://www.purevolume.com/anangle
Copeland also has three new songs on their purevolume site called Sleep, You Have My Attention, and Love Is A Fast Song. I really enjoy Copeland and always have. Seriously amazing. Their new cd In Motion is out on the 22nd I suggest you pick it up. http://www.purevolume.com/copeland
Mae also should have a new song up on purevolume today too. Which is from their new cd The Everglow that comes out on the 29th, I am seriously in love with this cd. Pick it up when it comes out.
The Starting Line has a new video update on their site, check it out. http://www.startinglinerock.com/downloads/
Straylight Run's new single will most likely be Your New Name(Sunrise Highway). Michelle Nolan is still amazing. As well as the band, if you still haven't picked up the cd what are you waiting for?
Here's a clip from Weezer's new single Beverly Hills. http://weezernation.com/Weezer%20-%20Beverly%20Hills%20(Clip).mp3
Check out this band, they are called Firescape consiting of members from Something Corporate, Madcap, and Mr.Crispy? They aren't too bad, I like them. http://www.purevolume.com/firescape
Here is Fall Out Boy's new single, it's called Sugar, We're Going Down. http://188.8.131.52/%7Eandrew/01-fall_out_boy-sugar_were_going_down-jno.mp3 It's not too bad.
Brand New still hasn't really said much about when their new album will be out..first it was April..now who knows.
New The Format songs are amazing.
If those links don't work and you want to hear the songs, send me an IM.
They are also on tour with Jimmy Eat World.
Since By Man will be going into the studio April 11th.
HelloGoodbye had a bonus song on their purevolume site, it's been there for a while. But chekc it out if you haven't already. It made me laugh http://www.purevolume.com/hellogoodbye
Hawthorne Heights is re-issuing their cd The Silence In Black and White on May 17th. Why? Who knows. Most likely to sell more and make more money. I think it's stupid, but that's just me.
Bright Eyes has their new music video out for The First Day Of My life on launch http://search.launch.yahoo.com/launch/search/?m=all&p=bright+eyes&x=0&y=0. Check it out.
The Academy Is.. cd Almost Here has been out for a while, but you should get it. I really enjoy it. They have something..that a lot of bands don't. I think a lot of you will like them if you don't already.
Also I suggest you all check out Reubens Accomplice. They are amazing, and I really enjoy listening to them.
Also everyone knows Ryan Marszalek, so check out his band in FL called Summerlin. I like them.
Some local band news..
Paige Marshall/Render By Phrase's split will be released this coming Saturday the 19th. Make sure you pick it up. I won't be there due to a show at Mad Planet for A Transit Diary.
The Meteah Strike recently released their cd, pick that up if you haven't already.
El Oso's cd is also out now. Pick that up too.
The Servos released their cd a month or so ago. Get it.
There's a few other shows around here coming up. Check out http://www.menomoneenoise.com or http://www.milwaukeerocks.com

Well, you're just across the street
Looks a mile to my feet
I want to go to you
Funny how I'm nervous still
I've always been the easy kill
I guess I always will
Could it be that everything goes around by chance
Or only one way that it was always meant to be
You kill me
You always know the perfect thing to say
I know what I should do but I just can't walk away
I can picture your face well
From the bar in my hotel
I wish I'd go to you
I pick up, put down the phone
Like your favorite Heatmiser song goes:
'It's just like being alone...'
Oh God, please don't tell me this has been in vain
I need answers for what all the waiting I've done means
You kill me
You've got some nerve but can't face your mistakes
I know what I should do but I just can't turn away
So go on, love
Leave while there's still hope for escape
Got to take what you can these days
There's so much ahead
And so much regret
I know what you want to say
I know it but can't help feeling differently
I loved you
And I should have said it
But tell me
Just what has it ever meant
I can't help it baby
This is who I am
Sorry but I can't just go turn off how I feel
You kill me
You build me up but just to watch me break
I know what I should do but I just can't walk away
||[25 Feb 2005|02:27pm]
Everything you write and say makes me hate you even more then I already do.
