Born to Quit
Tonight at the Grog shop there is an excellent bill of bands. The lineup consists of local openers The Lovekill (who feature Craig from Bears on drums), The Lovekill's great new record "These Moments Are Momentum") and headliners The Smoking Popes. You may recall them their hit "Need you Around" which was all of the airwaves in 1995.
Back in high school and college I loved this band to no end. I only managed to see them once at the old grog shop (rip). Now these guys from the windy city have reunited and are even going to put a new record. Which is great they make some of catchiest punk pop songs I have ever heard. Speaking of their music on their myspace page they have some new songs you can check out. Here is a recent interview they did with The Freetimes here in town. Doors open @ 8pm the show is $10.
Here is the video for the classic Smoking Popes song "Ruebella"
