The Wonder Years put forth all of their energy at every show, but there's something special about seeing them in a small club. Both the band and the fans relished the intimate setting. Adding a strong line-up of genuine musicians - really, any band on the show could have headlined to a solid turnout - was merely the icing on the cake. Don't miss this tour if it's coming anywhere near you, because The Wonder Years probably won't be playing venues this small for a while.

I'm extremely proud and excited that we're exclusively premiering one of my favorite albums of 2012 - Hostage Calm's Please Remain Calm.

You can stream it over at the bands' AP.net profile and while you're doing that you can also read my review as well as Adam's interview with the band. The album hits stores on October 9th, so don't forget to pre-order it ASAP.
