The Wonder Years are true representatives of a certain strata of their generation. They for them and to them. But they sound like emo and they have the same problem with melodies that inflicts all “emo” bands with the exception of My Chemical Romance. They are playing Best Buy on Thursday and if you wanna catch up with the Greatest Generation, that is the place to be.
It’s definitely more likely that this is all a hoax, and if you watch the video of the announcement, they’re all pretty stoic and emotionless, and it kind of just feels like a big joke. There’s no way that this isn’t just them messing with us.
Queens faves Bayside, though I wasn’t that thrilled the last time I saw em live at Best Buy, get the nod this week. First runner ups Suzanne Vega and Angel Olsen and honorable mention to PLANNINGTOROCk. Now let the game of what to Spotify have and not have begin… so far they’ve missed out on Broken Bells and Eric Church.
Anthony’s voice is the best it’s ever been. It’s warm and lovely, and feels like a hug. That’s one thing I’ve always loved about Bayside- no matter how hard and heavy their music gets, Anthony’s voice resolves it and leaves it just a bit softer. It’s so unique and hard to pull off, but they do it perfectly.
“The Great American Cult tour is not only brilliantly titled, but brilliantly supported. Four Year Strong, Daylight, and Mixtapes are the supporters. This is a diverse and wonderful lineup that will not only draw the pop punk crowd, but the rougher post-hardcore crowd as well.”
“Being able to change a “you’re pathetic and sucky” line into “I don’t mind, but I still think you’re secretly pathetic.” His voice here is wholesome and strong; it’s incredible the depth that he possesses. It’s one of the things that makes his voice so distinct and unique, and it fits this song seamlessly.”
“They just kept sending more and more paperwork to sign. Like for one, it’s a charity for the state of New York so we’re giving you the money kind of anyway, and two, we desisted like, we ceased and desisted, like, nine months ago. No good deed goes unpunished.”
