President's of the USA at the Fine Line!

Let nostalgia take it's course in May when The President's of the United States of America take the stage at the Fine Line Tuesday, May 6th. I am sure that Fine Line tickets for this show will still be available up until show time, as the interest for the band has goen down a bit since their mega hits "Lump" and "Peaches" hit the airwaves in '95. If I heard "Peaches" on the radio today, I would not doubt sing along, not missing a word.

Regardless, The Presidents of the United States of America are not just on a reunion tour, but are touring in support of their new album, Pure Frosting.

Fine Line tickets for this event are on sale now!

The Presidents of the United States of America with special guests The Black and White Years; Tuesday, May 4th - Doors @ 8pm, music @ 9pm - 18+

Bravery Show at the Fine Line

Even though Fine Line tickets for this show didn't completely sell out, which was kind of nice. For once you could actually move around!
However, I still had to stand in the back. I got there in time to see one of the opening bands who looked like a couple frat boys from Australia (I was VERY jealous of their tan!)
Other than that, they weren't too much to write home about.
The Bravery played all their hits from their new and old album like "Believe," "This is not the End," "Time Won't Let Me Go," and "An Honest Mistake." The Bravery managed to play all the songs I wanted to hear, but didn't really wow me with the way they performed them. I had seen them before at Roy Wilkins opening for the Smashing Pumpkins. I attributed that show being a little under par simply because Roy Wilkins is built like a high school gymnasium.
I can't complain too much because I got my $15 worth, but I don't know if I would go out of my way to see them again.
The show really got me in concert mode, though. Only a week and half until I get to see Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in Madison!!! Now that is a band I would definitely go back to the Fine Line to see!!!
