I’ve got a long personal history with Taking Back Sunday. After my initial Classic Rock phase which lasted into my early teens, Taking Back Sunday were one of the first bands that I truly loved that weren’t specifically Classic Rock. They were my first real foray into Emo and Punk.
So, it’s no secret that Pop Punk is one of my favorite genres of music for two reasons; I grew up listening to New Found Glory and Good Charlotte and I can actually understand the lyrics both lyrically and audibly.
One of NYC’s finest Hardcore bands makes an appearance this week, with Mike Gallo, the bassist of OG Hardcore band Agnostic Front paying us a visit.
