But, Ah Surprise….The Get Up Kids Reunion!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the title of this post deserves that many exclamation marks. The Get Up Kids of emo legend are playing a reunion show this Sunday in none other than Kansas City! The Midwest never gets this type of stuff. It usually happens in New York or Los Angeles, but we finally get our special show. Sure, it helps that Matt Pryor and the gang are from here, but still, I couldn’t be more excited about the exclusivity of the show. So as you are reading this, I’m probably sitting in line waiting for this show to happen. I hope I’m not too cold, haha.

The venue, The Record Bar, is a very small venue with capacity a little over 200 and tickets are only available day of show, so I’m being a little crazy and camping outside the venue starting Saturday. I’m not the only one doing this and if you check on-line forums, I might be waiting too long to start my camping.

To give a little background, The Get Up Kids formed in 1995, but it wasn’t until they released Something To Write Home About, that they started getting national attention. In 2005, the band played a farewell show and the members pursued their other projects. Matt Pryor had The Terrible Twos, The New Amsterdams and his solo project Matt Pryor. Jim Suptic had several other groups as well and I caught one of his shows in Blackpool Lights. The Pope brothers, Ryan and Rob, had Koufax. Keyboardist James Dewees was especially busy with his project Reggie and the Full Effect and helping on really big name tours with the likes of My Chemical Romance. This reunion marks the 10 year anniversary of Something To Write Home About. Plans are a few more reunion shows in the spring, but they are not officially back together.
