“The Get Up Kids are historically good at making EPs. The beloved Kansas rock band, whose twangy shout-a-longs first gained steam in the late ’90s, during the waning years of emo’s Midwest-centric second wave, have put out three to date. The Red Letter Day EP, released as a 10-inch just a few months before Something To Write Home About took the group from underground stars to the forefront of an entire movement, might be one of my all-time favorite examples of the format. If you’ve ever listened to “Mass Pike” on the Mass Pike, you’ll understand what I’m getting at.

And now, in 2018, they’ve got another one. Kicker arrives June 8, seven years since their last official release as a band. The four-song project is also their first for Polyvinyl, and it finds the band — particularly co-songwriters Matt Pyror and Jim Suptic — setting new, grown-up concerns about marriage and family life to the kind of upbeat and melodically assured guitar music that they’ve always been known for.” – FADER

Ron Pope Releases New Song “Figure It Out” – Performing February 24th at The Van Buren

“Nashville-based singer-songwriter and rocker Ron Pope has made his name slinging tunes as a sort of rock and roll everyman, delivering track after track grounded in earnest experience and emotional relatability. In an era that capitalizes on faux, “Joe the Plumber” types for a cheap buck, Pope stands apart as an honest-to-goodness blue-collar, Americana hero.” – Baeble Music
