Live Music; The Sidekicks at Cafe du Nord

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Growing up is weird. As it turns out, growing older can be even weirder. For musicians birthed in the fervently youth-centric world of punk rock, growing old gracefully is a largely foreign concept. Eventually most pop-punkers age out of their angry disaffection or creatively flame out whenever screamy break-up anthems start to seem tired, whenever you start to too closely resemble the very same people your younger, angrier self was rebelling against in the first place. In the case of The Sidekicks, the transition from high school hellions to erudite pop band has been a journey some twelve years and five full-lengths in the making. When considering the band's continuing evolution, as evidenced by their new album, Happiness Hours, frontman Steve Ciolek is both happy and a little perplexed. "Every time we make a record I think about how strange and amazing it is that we're still making records," he laughs, "But at some point you have to stop worrying about what kind of record you're supposed to be making and just make the kind of music that you yourself want to hear. I think it's healthy to ask yourself, 'What if this was the last thing we ever did? Would I be happy? If the band was forced to end tomorrow, is this the note we'd want to go out on?' In the case of Happiness Hours, I think we all definitely would be."

Prices:
General Admission: USD 16.29,
General Admission - Day of Show: USD 18.69,
General Admission - Doors: USD 18.69
