Maybe it’s because yesterday was my 27th birthday and I’m hitting my “oh my God, I’m almost 30” freak-out moment; but regardless of the reason, when hearing that Hoobastank was coming to town, boy oh boy did my high school memories come flying back. Like, super speed flying! Flooding the catacombs of my angsty “hate my parents,” “plaid-shirt and baggy jeans wearing” teenage mind…all over again! I still picture Doug Robb’s shirtless body in the music video for “Crawling in the Dark” and driving around with my then high-school boyfriend as we went to the…mall. Ok, face it, you all had nowhere else to go but the mall either! Age 16 was tough. But at least I drove, suckas!
Anyways, back to HOOBASTANK! If you are like me and totally still sneak their music into your workout playlist, or sing your weary hearts out to “The Reason” when it comes on the radio, then you, like me, will not be missing out on this rare and oh-so-wonderful show at Exit/In tomorrow. Get your tickets beforehand, because I have a feeling I’m not the only one who did a happy dance with the news of the show.
Do it. OR ELSE, YOU FREAKIN’ BUTTWODS. (That’s my attempt to channel the 16-year old me. I failed…miserably. But you get my point. Maybe. Whatever….)
