Motion City Soundtrack (HOB Anaheim. May 11, 2016)

Motion City SoundtrackI celebrated my 30th birthday this past January. A quiet celebration at home reminded me that I’m not in high school anymore: I don’t get wild every weekend, my knees hurt at the end of the day, my show attendance has (unfortunately) decreased, and bands I listened to are hanging it up.

Basement (the Glass House. August 12, 2014)

Basement

I still remember the day that Basement played down the street from the Glass House at Aladdin Jr. 2 — I wasn’t there. I was accompanying a friend to an open forum discussion on unmanned aerial vehicles (drones). While watching old people argue on off-topic issues was entertaining, I knew I was missing out on an even better show by a band that was going away for an undetermined amount of time. Snap back to current times: Aladdin Jr. 2 is long gone, but Basement was back in the US for an incredible sold-out show.
