End Of The Year Lists

Hi, everyone! Here is my feeble attempt at making lists for my favorite music-things in 2011. This is only my second year doing this so it’s still not going to be that cool. I’m still going through this phase where I want to buy all my music on CD or vinyl, and since I have no real source of income right now, it’s difficult to keep up with all the new music. I’m sad to admit that this list would probably look different had I been able to get all the music I wanted. SO, now that I’ve got that out way!… check it out:

Show Recap: Take Action Tour 2011

Last night I went to the Take Action Tour with some kids. We got a little lost on the way and when we made it to the show The Swellers were half way through there set and we completely missed Texas In July (not complaining about that one). The Swellers sounded great. I had been really wanting to see them.

Next up was Polar Bear Club and I was the only one who wanted to watch them because apparently I’m the only one who appreciates quality punk rock. Whatever. They were really good and played a good set.

Next was Bayside. They were collectively who we went for. At this point we got in the pit and it was crazy as always. Bayside sounded amazing and some guy proposed to his girlfriend on stage right before Don’t Call Me Peanut.

(Anthony Raneri, of Bayside, acoustic)

We watched Silverstein from the sidelines. About this time, I was pretty tired and was trying not to let my vinyl get cracked. However, they sounded really good and I don’t listen to them but I may have to actually listen to the few songs I have on my iTunes now.

Killing Time is out today!! This is where I try to convince to go out and buy it.. so go buy it and support good music.
There are benefits to buying music the week it’s released. A) It’s cheap. Best Buy has it for only $7.99! B) It helps the band a lot more than you think. The more albums sold the more opportunities the band gets. It’s not about the money. It’s about numbers. So, let’s go do this!… BAYSIDE, YEAH! View Larger
