In this past week's edition of the Observer, noted emo nerd and contributor Eric Grubbs talks The Get Up Kids, bemoaning the fact that the last time the band played the Dallas-Fort Worth region, it was relegated to an under card performance during a Dashboard Confessional show. It was a trying concert, Grubbs says, but especially so in retrospect, considering that the band broke up in 2005.
The good news, though, for Get Up Kids fans? Last year, the band reunited--and tomorrow night, while pushing the re-issue of its album Something to Write Home About a whopping 10 years after its initial release, the band will stop by the Granada Theater for a performance.
Oh, and thanks to the folks at the Granada, we've got three pairs of tickets to give away to tomorrow night's show. And we're gonna hand them out--right now, in fact--to the first three people to shoot me an email with the words "Something to Write Home About" in the subject line. Good luck!
