I like this:

Ashley Dedin covering Alkaline Trio’s “Love Love Kiss Kiss” on the autoharp. She was one of the winners in the Settle the Score contest. She should have been the only winner in my opinion. She took the one song I don’t like from Agony and Irony and made it amazing.

So excited!

From a Rise Against MySpace bulletin:

New Album: Appeal To Reason, and Fall Tour!!!
That’s right, our new record, Appeal To Reason, has been completed and will be released October 7th, 2008. As you may know, we have once again teamed up with our friends Bill Stevenson & Jason Livermore, who produced Appeal To Reason at the Blasting Room, along with their capable team of engineers. Bill & Jason are the genius’ behind The Sufferer & The Witness and also the responsible for the re-mix of our first record, The Unraveling on Fat Wreck, as well as numerous other songs, including our recent cover of “Little Boxes” for the show “Weeds”.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve teamed up with some old friends for a fall tour and are hoping to bring it to your town. RISE AGAINST, ALKALINE TRIO, THRICE, THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM. We considered giving the tour some fancy name, but then realized that nothing looks or sounds as good as those four bands together, in our own humble opinion.

See you this fall !

-Rise Against

I don’t know who Gaslight Anthem is, but after missing Alkaline Trio last night I’m glad to know they will probably be back in the fall + Rise Against and Thrice!

That makes up for the fact that today I found out I have my first two cavities ever. booo.

 

Update: The dates have been announced and are available on Rise Against’s Myspace page. See you at the Philly show October 16th!

Another update: Got my tickets during the presale wednesday! Also, I listened to Gaslight Anthem and I don’t get why so many people are so into them. Whatever!

Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio in H2O video What Happened

Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio in H2O video What Happened

This might be sort of old news, but I didn’t know. H2O’s new song and video “What Happened?” features Lou Koller of Sick Of It All and Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio. 

The song is good… Matt’s part is AWESOME (of course).

We saw Alkaline Trio last night at Croc Rock in Allentown. yay! It was fun. Here is what they played (not in order)

help me

in vein

calling all skeletons

goodbye forever

i lied my face off

time to waste

mercy me

private eye

armageddon

crawl

clavicle

this could be love

we’ve had enough

every thug needs a lady

maybe i’ll catch fire

she took him to the lake

—encore—

old school reasons

radio

I wish they would have played 97 instead of radio, metro instead of old school reasons, and different songs from good mourning, but it was a fun show anyway!

update Just got back from seeing Alkaline Trio at the Montgomery Mall at the Zumiez Couch Tour. Man, did I feel old! It was too bad the crowd didn’t seem that into the band. Oh well… it was free. They played almost the same set minus: clavicle, maybe i’ll catch fire, she took him to the lake, old school reasons, radio

update This post gets a lot of hits… if you’ve been to a recent show, help out other fans and post the set list (or any songs you remember) as a comment.

update In Philly 10/16/08 they played private eye, calling all skeletons, i lied my face off, i found away, in vein, goodbye forever, emma, clavicle, this could be love (maybe more – this is what I remember).

Alkaline Trio Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush Nike 6.0
From Alkaline Trio’s MySpace blog

NIKE 6.0 AND ALKALINE TRIO SHOE COLLABORATION

Beaverton OR. (June 9th, 2008)- Nike 6.0 and punk stalwarts, Alkaline Trio, joined forces to translate the energy of action sports and punk rock into a pair of collaborative kicks. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush and a limited run of messenger bags will be released June 27th exclusively at Jacks Retail Shop in Huntington Beach. Alkaline Trio recently kicked off their summer tour, supporting their new album Agony and Irony and the release of the shoe. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush will be available at select retailers nationwide on July 11th.

“The collaboration between Nike 6.0 and Alkaline Trio was a natural fit. Punk rock’s independent spirit is a common thread with action sports, and the band member’s live the lifestyle we support.” said Tim Reede, Nike 6.0 Product Line Manager. “We were able to create unique materials and details that reflect the band’s history, resulting in a collaboration that truly tells a story.”

“We chose red and black as the main colors to reflect our Chicago roots and pay homage to the Bulls. We are huge fans,” said Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. “I’m also into sneakers, so seeing the swoosh and our logo on one product is unbelievable. The shoe looks amazing and provides some insight into who we are.”

Custom design elements include reflective details and bike-tread inspired graphics, correlating to the band’s formative years in Chicago where the members met while working as bike messengers. Distressed materials translate the punk ethos, and the Alkaline Trio logo is featured on the heel cup. The Heart and Sole Cush is constructed of all synthetics, supporting select band members who are vegetarian.

The Air Zoom Cush, new to the Nike 6.0 line, is a low profile action-sports shoe, built for high performance and increased responsiveness. The Cush features a one-piece toe vamp and V-oriented grooves in the sole to increase flex. For more information, and video content visit www.nike6.com.

As the Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush drops, the Alkaline Trio will be in the midst of a Summer headlining tour in support of their highly anticipated new album Agony & Irony, in stores July 1st. The national tour kicked off May 30th in Vancouver, sweeping major markets across the country and ends in Kansas on August 3rd.

I like the box better than the shoe!

Thanks to all of my friends who wished me a happy birthday :)

I feel like my brain is kind of broken… I was just watching The Hills and my favorite band Alkaline Trio was on it. It was so weird, and surprising. I don’t know what to think. At least Audrina has the good sense to know they are good.

My mom got me tickets to see Alkaline Trio at Croc Rock June 20th. Yay!

And speaking of Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba has cute/funny pictures of himself from when he was younger on his MySpace page. Here are a few:
Matt Skiba How about this haircut?Matt Skiba Every picture should have a reflection.

Back to my birthday. My sister got me this awesome Marc by Marc Jacobs coin purse and a silver “W” key chain. (Also Marc Jacobs)

I also got the Cloverfield and Clue DVDs. :)

My mom, grandmother, sister and I went to the Brandywine River Museum on Saturday where I once again wished I had $5000 to spend on this print. (Snow Hill by Andrew Wyeth) It’s big (26 1/2 by 40), beautiful and would look great in my new living room ;)

Jeff took me out to dinner to Carrabbas. I had Mezza Luna (as always) yum. The host looked like Ryan Atwood. Weird.

Ryan Atwood

That’s pretty much it. Not sure if I’m a fan of being 28, but I guess I don’t have a choice!

 

Update: Here is the video of Alkaline Trio “recording” their new song, “In Vein” on the Hills. It pretty much just focuses on Dan singing and Lo being a ho-bag.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll pretty much like any song Alk3 puts out (except My Standard Break From Life – ugh) They released a 3 song EP today called Agony & Irony which is apparently only available on iTunes. I’d rather buy a CD, but I didn’t see it on Amazon so I just downloaded it from iTunes. If you like Alkaline Trio (and you should!) you’ll like these songs. I wish Fire Down Below was on the EP!
