and if you're still on the fence about going to see The Wonder Years with Misser, Hostage Calm, and Fireworks, I highly recommend that you don't miss out on this stellar lineup with such great people. Last night the power was out at the venue and we got acoustic sets from every band, and when the power came back on after TWY's first acoustic song, they decided to put on the whole show as planned even though it was already 10 pm. This is more than most bands would do. Go see them play.
The new Lydia is better than Paint It Golden, but very meh in terms of what the band is capable of. They just aren't the same and aren't going to be the same without the old pieces. Oh well. That new Conditions has a couple of fantastic tracks and a handful of throwaways. New senses fail melts titties.
