The Get Up Kids at Great American Music Hall 

Wednesday, Sep 2 2015

One of the main problems with putting the word “kids” in your band name is that one day, way down the line, it will seem terribly ironic. The Get Up Kids have just reached that moment, with this, their 20th anniversary tour. But regardless of the years racked up between the band’s beloved debut album, Four Minute Mile, and this international celebratory tour, the Kansas City quintet have a back catalog that has stood the test of time. The band’s second full-length, Something To Write Home About, remains a classic. So whether you go to this to reminisce about your formative years, or you simply cannot miss hearing these songs live again, this show is sure to put a glow in your heart and a spring in your step.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
