Saves the Day is one of my favorite post punk emo bands from that era, but they have continued to write and put out good music over the last ten years. They will be releasing their new self titled album the day of the show. Did you know that their current guitarist Arun Bali is from Michigan or that their latest album was recorded just a few months ago here at Rancho Recordo located in the woods of Michigan? This band knows how to write good music and the singer, Chris Conley, knows how to write lyrics that you can relate to. "Through Being Cool" is my anthem to all the haters out there and I'm Sorry I'm Leaving is one of my favorite things to listen to on a long drive in the summer.
If you can't tell, I am a pretty big fan of this band. That's why I am so excited to announce they are playing this Tuesday, September 17th at the Magic Stick and we have one set of tickets to giveaway for the show. Our friends over at Black Iris Booking have given us one pair to give to one lucky fan. That person can bring a friend and join me in awe of the greatness that is Saves the Day. To enter, email your full name to firstname.lastname@example.org with Saves the Day as the subject line. We will draw and email the winner on Monday. Doors open at 7 p.m. and Into It. Over It. and Hostage Calm will be opening the show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. You can purchase advance tickets here, all ages are welcome! I'll be the crazy girl standing up front screaming and singing along with the band. I do hope you'll join me!
