Girl at the Rock Show

Blink-182 went on an indefinite hiatus in 2003/2004 which was a huge blow for me. They genuinely are one of my favorite bands, and have been since I was in the fifth grade. Following their break-up Mark, Tom, and Travis went on to get married and become dads, exploring television, reality TV, film making, and musical side projects such as Box Car Racer, +44, and Angels and Airwaves. Following Travis' near-death plane crash in 2008, the band made an announcement to get back together at the 2009 Grammy's, and I completely lost it.

They did a reunion tour in 2009 which I happily attended, but there wasn't much press or follow-up regarding any upcoming album releases. They announced a 2011 tour, I purchased tickets in the presale, and this past week they announced a release date for their upcoming album Neighborhoods. I have waited patiently over the course of eight years for this, and finally, it's all happening!!

This past Saturday, Blink-182 stopped through Chicago and my little brother and I donned our best Blink attire for the show. I reached for my 2009 tour shirt, and he went with the Blink-182 for Haiti tee. We looked fabulous, and naturally, we knew every word to every song. It was the perfect evening.

And now, the countdown begins until September 26 when Neighborhoods hits the stores and my stereo!
