Really regret not getting tickets for this current tour. It would be so much better to see them play smaller clubs than to see them in a stadium opening for Rise Against later this year. I'm tired of all my favorite bands opening for Rise Against.

It really boggles my mind that Rise Against are that popular in the states.

It boggles mine too. I wasn't even aware of it until i saw who has been opening for them the past couple years.

I think that Sink or Swim might actually be my favorite album from these guys. And I like all of them. How weird is that?

So Brian is posting all over the place that he's writing again. Anyone have ideas on what that could possibly be?

Hey guys.

Sooo, I'm a huge fan of TGA, so I'm looking for some bands that have a similar sound to them, that sorta folky-punk thing going on (don't rec Springsteen, tried and failed to get into him). Recs please?

EDIT: and what album of their's to start with, if possible

Fake Problems.
Lawrence Arms.
Menzingers.

They aren't as clean sounding as Gaslight though.

Been listening to alot of TGA recently, and I'm still convinced that SoS is their best release (not by much, though). So many good songs, so much passion.

I feel the same way, even though I like everything that came after. Those songs aren't super innovative, but they never get old. I go through phases with that album where I listen to it nonstop for weeks.

did you guys get your tickets for that show already? i was on the smalls website today and it says it's sold out.

Yeah, they went on sale to the public on Saturday. I even made sure I got mine the moment they were available. This band and Brand New are the only bands I've ever done that for.

I bought mine on Saturday morning too, I wasn't sure how quickly they'd go so I decided to be safe and get them early. Did either of you do the mail option? I noticed when I went back to see if tickets were still available earlier this week that the only option was will call and I found that strange.

That is strange. I did mail, though I tend to do will call to save money. Sometimes will call is made the only option to prevent scalping though, not sure if that's the case.

I think they used to be really good live. Although my source is youtube. It seems like they've lost it just a little bit, it can happen as bands get older. Playing shows all year can be exhausting over time.

Just saying, I didn't see them in 07 or 08, as I'm sure lots of their current fans did not, and there are some good quality performances online from the 59 sound era, even at festivals, that sound quite good and are still entertaining to go back and watch.
