Saw them in Seattle my first time in their last tour, they were great and nothing but nice people who took the time to have a conversation with me after the show. AJ was running around frantically selling merch, signing autographs, and taking pictures.
Shit happens, but I don't think any differently of them for whatever other people make such a big deal out of... As I've said in other posts, I'm sure you've done some things that would make people think less of you and they didn't if they cared about you, I care about them. Only difference is your every move isn't posted on the Internet and followed by people who seem to not even like the music, so why bother? You're opinion means nothing to someone who likes The Damgerous Summer because that's how a real fan is supposed to be.
And I must say, TDS isn't really in the Pop-Punk category anymore in my opinion. They do have some undertones but I'd say for the most part they're Progressive Alternative/Indie Rock. But everyone has their own opinions, I will just defend this band to the grave because they have been my all time favorite since I was 16.
i always read comments by people saying they know of bands who are doing exactly what TDS is doing, but better, yet they never give names. so if any of those people read this, give me names of bands i should listen to instead. this is a legitimate question but also a snide remark.
