A couple of shows chalk full of pop-punk are coming to Culture Room. First up is the West Palm Beach-based Hey Monday, who are on the verge of being pop-punk's next big thing. Sure pop-punk bands are a dime-a-trillion, but this local act has a beautiful female lead singer (in appearance and vocally) and a sound custom made the kids to love and bitter bloggers to scoff at. Unwarranted negativity aside, they've signed to Decaydance and just two years after going full time, they'll be headlining a tour which also stars Versa Emerge, Go Radio, and Take The Town. Tickets for the December 27 show go on sale Friday via Ticketmaster.
Hit the jump see Hey Monday's How You Love Me Now video and read about a '90s revival.
If you like your pop-punk more masculine and more New Englandy, you
might want to hold off for For Year Strong's show at Culture Room on
January 18. Most interesting thing about FYS? Earlier this year they
released an album of '90s covers called Explains it All. They covered
bands like Everclear, Nirvana, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Third Eye
Blind, finally bucking the annoying "Let's do pop-punk covers of '80s
songs" and starting their own brand new trend. Personally, I can't wait
to see the '90s become deified like the '80s have been for the last
Time Next Year, and Title Fight will be joining FYS on this tour.
Tickets go on sale this Friday via Ticketmaster.
