Yellowcard Announce ‘Indefinite Hiatus’
Yellowcard just finished up an all-acoustic tour with The Spill Canvas. I didn’t write a review because I was busy being nostalgic (I do have videos!), but Emily did a review of tthe band’s recent show at Glass House in Pomona, California and Sarah has one of their San Fran stop.
Kind of weird for me to be saying I’m okay with this — because like there are so many of you who say MCR/FOB/etc. changed your life… Yellowcard was my band. By pure luck, I discovered them a couple days after One For The Kids was released. They opened for Slick Shoes at Chain Reaction in Anaheim in April of 2001. After that show, I totally threw myself into this band because I swore they were going to be huge. I’ve been to about 70 shows of theirs (they played a lot in SoCal in their early years). I moderated their message board and ran a couple of their LJ communities. Anyway, enough of me loitering in memory lane. (But if you want to loiter, I have old skool photos, yo).
Kind of a sad good-bye phase for the pop-punk bands of yesteryear — The Starting Line announced their indefinite hiatus just last month.
Guys? I think it’s time to make an “Indefinite Hiatus” mixtape to summon the gods of musical reunions. Let’s do this.
