Taking Back Sunday at Revolution Live November 7

Doesn't it suck when emo nostalgia slaps you in the face and reminds you that (a) you're getting old and (b) you have accomplished only about 12 percent of what you said you would by now? After reuniting on last year's self-titled record, the original members of Taking Back Sunday are on tour, commemorating the tenth anniversary of their essential album, Tell All Your Friends. "The record is just so important to us," TBS bassist Shaun Cooper recently told Washington newspaper the Columbian. "We wouldn't be here without it. We can't believe that ten years ago, we put out this record." Neither can we. The TBS song "Cute Without the E" was our ring-back tone until last week, when we switched cell phone carriers. And a shoddy bootleg live recording of an old Taking Back Sunday concert was the last file we downloaded on Lime Wire. Seriously, where'd the past decade go?
