Terrible.

don’t do this to xylo! :frowning:

Surely he doesn’t? Does he?

maybe not?

I haven’t heard them since I was 16 and a girl I knew liked them so have no idea if they/he? are any good or not

it’s a good name for a band though I will say!

Definitely awful. Gimme a few pints and then play Screaming Infidelities at me though and I’ll sing like I’m 16 and just been dumped again.

Touring next month. Wife is going but it was a hard no for me. Appalling. Venue has been downgraded from a 1200 to 400 capacity which says a lot.

Imagine 400 people buying dashboard confessional tickets in 2018

Aw jeez, I seem to remember going to see him around the time of that one album I (and everybody else) bought. Support was Finch, Saves the Day and Face to Face! Just having a quick listen now, and this song is nice until he starts wailing:

He’s part of the first Further Seems Forever album so I can’t hate on him too much! Although I haven’t listened to that in a while either.

Finch and Saves the Day on the same bill. Wow.

When I was 16 my brother bought me Kanye tickets but my then-boyfriend didn’t want to go with me and got me to exchange them for Maroon 5 tickets because Dashboard Confessional were supporting.

I’m still fuming.

My Julien Baker comparison was initially a joke but think is actually accurate

Had enough now
