UpdateYo folks it's time fo an update from Team HTL! What's new? We've just been chugging kool aid and whoop'in butts, which is what we've always done anyway so I guess it's not really new. BAAAAM! We wrapped up Warped Tour this year and would like to personally thank the states of Texas up through California for being hotter than your step mom. We've currently embarked on the Paramore/Cute Is What We Aim For/ This Providence tour which has already been nuttier than squirrell turds! We've had a blast and would like to thank all...

Below is an update from Nick Thompson of Hit the Lights:
MessageYo yo yo it's update time and it's a 'biggin'! What have we been up to since the last update? Well it's really none of your business but since I'm hopped up on diet coke and laffy taffy, I'm inclined to let you cool cats in. First things first, HUGE shout outs to all the east coast kids for all the love they showed us on the DON'T KNOCK THE HUSTLE tour. We couldn't miss the boys on that tour anymore than we do right now. Good dudes, good tunes, good fu manchus! We would like to apologize for all the kids that came to see us the last four dates, as our singer Colin got strep throat and had to be in quarantine so none of us...

Some blurbs about the Cartel / Hit The Lights tour:
-Last night, Cartel played their first acoustic set because Kevin, the drummer, had to head home for the night to attend his brother's graduation. The band played all of Chroma (give or take) with the exception of "Q" and "A".
-Hit The Lights' singer, Colin, has strep throat so the band may need to drop off of a few shows. Expect details on that soon.
