Who: New Found Glory with Trash Boat
What: 20 Years of Pop Punk playing Sticks and Stones (2002) and Catalyst (2004)
When: Friday, May 12, 2017 – 7pm
Where: Revolution Live
Pop punk legends and Coral Springs natives, New Found Glory, are currently celebrating their 20 year anniversary with the 20 Years Of Pop Punk tour. As a treat to their fans, the band is revisiting six of their most beloved albums on tour: Nothing Gold Can Stay, Sticks and Stones, Catalyst, Coming Home, Not Without A Fight, and their self-titled album. A medley of two full albums will be played at every stop on the tour. For the lucky few in South Florida, we will have the pleasure of hearing Sticks and Stones (2002) and Catalyst (2004).
The band evolves with every new project, and last month they did it once again with the release of their ninth full length album, Makes Me Sick. While we won’t be hearing much (if anything) from this new album during their show at Revolution, it will definitely be on sale at their merch table.
Fellow Hopeless Records band, Trash Boat, will be kicking off the show each night for their first US tour. Their debut album, Nothing I Write Can Change What You’ve Been Through (2016), was produced by the Wonder Years’ Dan Campbell, proving just how pop punk they are, and how fitting the opening act is. If you’re new to Trash Boat, I recommend starting with their singles “Strangers” and “How Selfish I Seem.”
For this special event, Revolution will be opening up their seldom used outdoor stage. If you’re a pop punk fan looking for a good place to just let go, jump around, and scream along to some classics, you should pick up your ticket before they’re all gone.
