Get Up Kids Reunion!

According to the music blog of the Kansas City Star, The Get Up Kids are playing a show this Sunday! It'll be their first show in 3 years. Vocalist Matt Pryor told the blog:

"Next year is the 10th anniversary of our second record, 'Something to Write Home About,' which was our most popular record. We talked to Vagrant about doing a 10-year anniversary edition with a DVD and a photo book and all that stuff. Then we thought, 'Hey, we should play some shows.' This summer we got everybody on-board. Then we basically told a bunch of people about it and then denied it, just to be contrary.

"We weren't going to do it until next year, but we decided it'd be funny if we just showed up and played a show. We thought about doing it Thanksgiving, like, 'Hey, we all happen to be home for Thanksgiving ...,' but that didn't work out."

They've also released new shirts with the words "Be Prepared." Could this imply a full reunion tour or maybe them getting back together? This all makes this guy pretty damn stoked. They were the band responsible for getting me into independent music and away from the shit flooding the airwaves and MTV. Sure the band's last couple albums weren't my favorites, but "Something to Write Home About" is still at the top of my favorite albums list.

Well, it happened. ugg nightfall was cooking chicken and didn't realize the ugg nightfall boots has squirted all over the top of my ugg boots until the next day. Now what? I done some research by calling the ugg Company. They told me to use the uggs Australia Sheepskin Cleaner, Conditioner, and the Sheepskin Stain & Water Repellent.
