Needless to say the whole thing bums me out a little bit. It's especially weird that at the golden age of 18, I am "old." However, I have a lot of hope that the next generation ska bands that are making something fresh and new. I feel like Bomb the Music Industry! has started an entire era of bands releasing their music for free. WATU is something fresh as well, considering they really do an awesome job of blending posi-pop punk with ska in ways that I find much more enjoyable than Less Than Jake, considering I never really could get into Less Than Jake.
Anyways, I'm stoked for some awesome music tonight and I think I'm going to make a road trip to Connecticut where a lot of the bands that are breaking up are playing one last show together.
