Show Advancement: The Get Up Kids 20th Anniversary Tour ends at Mohawk

The Get Uo Kids Poster

If you’re anything like me, The Get Up Kids were one of the first bands you ever listened to that wasn’t your parents’ music, that wasn’t a hit on the radio and that required obsessive listening. The fact that this is their 20th Anniversary tour makes me feel old, yes, but I can’t wait to be in the crowd at this show, feeling young again. Songs like “Out of Reach” and “Close to Home,” from their second album Something to Write Home About, I thought, defined me as a person and hand a huge hand in kick-starting my teenage-angsty years. To those memories deserve a good night of raising fists while belting lyrics into the sky. See ya at Mohawk on Wednesday, fellow-emo-connoisseurs. Tickets are $21 and will more than likely sell out.
