Win Tickets to Saves the Day at the Magic Stick!!!

Have you ever played an album and been immediately transported back to the first time you heard the music or to the period in your life when that music was in heavy rotation? Music has the power to bring back moments, people, and places that we have since forgotten. I swear sometimes the right songs can even make me remember a smell. Saves the Day - Stay What You Are is one of those albums that transports me to a different time and place. I played that record over and over again in my college dorm room. I was maybe 18 at the time and I could relate to every word in every song. I wanted adventure, I wanted to fall In love, and I wanted to be loved, and that album perfectly encompassed those feelings into music. The funny thing is, 10 years later those songs still reflect my life, but in different ways.

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 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!
