Perhaps one of the most influential bands ever have reformed and are heading back over to these shores in August! It's The Get Up Kids Ladies and Gentlemen! Easily one of my favourite bands on the planet and the one band I suggest you check out this August. If you have a wedding planned, cancel it. If you're going to another gig, give the tickets to a stranger. Just go see them.
