Whether you’re an old fan, casual listener, or just heard “Catholic Girls” and enjoyed it, this tour is definitely worth going to. The Dangerous Summer plays a great mix of material, while opener Tommy & The High Pilots heightens the bar for future live shows.
It seems like a lot of exciting new bands are emerging from the Nashville scene lately, huh?

If you dig it, make sure you pre-order it as well.

"I want this record to be a kick in the teeth," Browder says in a statement. "I like pop songs, yet at the same time I like things a little fucked up and distorted. Might as well run the vocals through a guitar pedal."
With one week of fantasy football in the history books, early-season winners and losers alike turned their attention to the waiver wire to get ahead of the game and pick up sleeper players.

It's a shame, for fans' sake, that this isn't a longer tour, as the strong line-up fits well together, but I'm happy to have been able to see it. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait another two years before Blink 182 tours the country again, because they remain one of the most fun live shows.

Is this the "vinylification" of the CD?
