The Revival Tour at the Granada on Friday night

revival tour header The long-running acoustic punk Revival Tour made its first-ever stop in Lawrence (or Kansas City) on Friday night. The Granada Theater in Lawrence was filled with folks in the mood for a sing-along. Surprisingly, though, the place wasn't packed. Whether it was the fact that Bad Religion took everyone's money on Monday, or that people weren't aware that the frontmen for the Get Up Kids, Rise Against, and Hot Water Music were playing solo acoustic, the crowd was far smaller than I was planning on.
That being said, the folks there were intent on having a good time. People were singing along, drinking heavily, and just generally having fun. Nobody lost their shit or stared acting stupid, and it was almost sedate enough to have had the audience sitting on the floor for the sing-along parts. Fun times, especially as Matt Pryor was added as a special guest for this stop, Lawrence being where he and his family live now.
It would've been a little better if Jenny O. hadn't been the solo female representative on the tour. While I love the positive vibes (lots of "kid, keep your head up" songs were rocked Friday night), the lengthy chain of dudes with raspy, hoarse voices shouting as they strummed wore thin after a bit. Big points to Jenny for being the lone finger-picker on stage that night, as well.
Nice time and all, but several of the performers' voices were showing their years of yelling. I think that recent spate of Hot Water Music dates messed up Chuck Ragan's voice, because he was eight different kinds of hoarse. Dave Hause's voice rang out clear as a bell, though. Given the number of people singing along, you'd think that he was the star of the show, not Rise Against's Tim McIlrath.

The Anniversary almost played this year’s Middle of the Map

berwangerOn last week's episode of the Nothing to Write Home About podcast, host Matt Pryor (the Get Up Kids, New Amsterdams, et al) was interviewing friend and fellow musician Joshua Berwanger about his time in the Anniversary and the Only Children, as well as talking about Berwanger's new musical project, Berwanger. In the course of the interview (which is really quite good, and a must-listen for anyone who was seeing shows in Kansas City during the mid-90s), Berwanger discusses the possibility of a reunion of his most well-known band, the Anniversary, and reveals something pretty astonishing:
"Janko [Christian Jankowski], since the day we broke up, has been trying to get the Anniversary back together and, so, he almost got us to play the Middle of the Map this year. Everyone agreed to do it, believe it or not, and it came down to, like, a timing issue -- not having enough time to rehearse before that week. So, I think ... it could be fun? I don't know. I thought at one point, the original Beatles would have a better chance of doing it."
Here's hoping that happens at some point, then, shall we? It's no longer just wishful thinking. Listen to the episode below, and subscribe to Nothing to Write Home About on iTunes.

Diflucan Alternative

tguk_landscape_color_final_72dpi Diflucan Alternative, Back in December, I interviewed Get Up Kids' frontman Matt Pryor for a feature in the Pitch. That feature ran in last week's issue, and turned out really well. However, there were portions of the conversation that really didn't fit into the article or go with the angle I was pursuing.

However, as the first Get Up Kids full-length in nearly seven years, There Are Rules, comes out tomorrow, Diflucan Alternative australia, I felt it'd be nice to share this part of the interview, wherein Pryor discusses the band's approach to vinyl releases.

I know the original plans for There Are Rules had been to put it out as a series of EPs. What changed that?

A cost-benefit analysis, Diflucan Alternative. It was going to cost us more to make them and it was going to cost fans more to buy them. After putting out that first one [Simple Science], we realized that people, especially the media – and I think probably the fan, too – don't take EPs as seriously as they do albums. I think we're eventually moving toward a singles culture in the music industry, but I don't think we're there yet, 200mg Diflucan Alternative. At least not in indie rock. Diflucan Alternative, I think we're there for hip-hop and pop music, but we're definitely not there for what we do. Which is fine, you know?

It's either the two-song 7-inch or the full release, and anything in between is seen as kind of a toss-off?
No, I think it's that there's a full release, and anything else is a promotional item. But, we're doing a 7-inch for this record, Diflucan Alternative india, and those things are important to us as music fans and collectors and whatnot, so we'll continue to do them.

You guys got your start releasing 7-inches. How many did you release before you put out a full length-proper?
Three. We put out a 7-inch ourselves, and then Doghouse put out our 7-inch, and this label out of Florida called Contrast – I don't think it exists anymore – put out one, and those two 7-inches became our first EP, which was on Doghouse. Does that make sense?

Would you consider yourself in the collector nerd realm, Diflucan Alternative. I know Simple Science came out on four different colors.
At least. There were two different colors of a 10-inch version of it, 500mg Diflucan Alternative, too. I am not as much of a collector as I used to be, because I've got mouths to feed, you know. But that's something we've always done, and tried to do. On A Wire came out on a picture disc and 180-gram vinyl, and there's always been lots of colors of stuff. 50mg Diflucan Alternative, So, now that we're in complete control of everything, we just take it to the nth degree, 'cause we just think they're cool.

You can pick up the Get Up Kids' new album on CD via the Amazon link above, or grab it on vinyl from their store at Blue Collar Distro, along with the "Automatic" 7-inch.
