25 Years Of Something To Write Home About

The Get Up Kids have announced a North American headlining tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of  their seminal 1999 LP, Something To Write Home About. The 29-date trek will see the band playing the album in its entirety at  each show, including The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee on October 8th.

In the two and a half decades since the release of this landmark album, the four core members of The  Get Up Kids — Matt Pryor, Jim Suptic, Rob Pope, and Ryan Pope — have explored side projects, helmed  solo ventures, and held stints in high-profile bands. They’ve also started businesses, found spouses, and  raised kids. Still, run into them on the streets of Lawrence, Kansas, these days, and you’ll find that —  perhaps beneath a beard — each has retained the high-spirited, unwavering authenticity that fans stood  feet from at basement shows before the band’s sophomore breakthrough.

 Something to Write Home About has landed in a similar place: recognizable as the same electrifying,  scrappy album it was upon release, but also transformed by time into one of the most seminal records of  the band’s scene. The album has been established as an important late-millennium rock-and-roll document; a convergence of power pop, alternative rock, and punk, it provided the parameters for emo’s  Midwest-centered second wave.
