Let's Toast the Night Away to Friends

I grew up going to a small club where loud music was played for a gathering of sweaty people all smashed together. And I loved every second of it. I have been kicked in the head by crowd surfers, pushed men twice my size when pits got too close for comfort, and been smashed against many a stages. There's nothing like a punk show.

Now that I'm older I don't get to as many small shows as I'd like. That's why I'm so excited to go see New Found Glory, Alkaline Trio, and H2O tomorrow night. NFG isn't really hard, but they've been one of my favorites for 10+ years. I'm sure the two other bands will get rowdy enough for me to get out some aggression, anyways.

So here's a little sampling of these amazing bands. Enjoy!

New Found Glory - Hit or Miss Ballad for the Lost Romantics
"Here's to us fools who have no meaning, I tip my glass to you. Let's toast the night away to friends and forget about tomorrow."
Alkaline Trio - Mercy Me
"So drive yourself insane tonight, I just filled your tank up and it's not too far away."
H2O - Like a Prayer (Madonna cover)
"Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone. I head you call my name and it feels like home."

Nice I can't tell you the last time I heard a NFG song! It should be a great show.

oh the era of new found glory. I remember when the "Warped tour" was a thing and everyone thought going was so cool

All of this is reminding me of high school, girl! These were my favorites when I was an awkward, wannabe angsty teenager :)

I loved NFG in college! I think I need to listen to it and reminisce.
