By the time I was twelve years old—old enough to go and experience select things on my own, without parental supervision, but far too young to be out after 9 p.m. without it—I started getting a weekly allowance.
Great memories here. I used to clean up at Warped Tour. Fat used to sell 4 CDs for $5.
Short Music for Short People was the best!

Incredibly inspiring to hear all the stories of Rick Rubin’s past. He had a huge hand in so many legendary records.
If you have 2 hours this weekend, watch this documentary on David Geffen’s life story. I re-watched it last night and it’s amazing to see how many times he built from scratch to success.
2 of my dear friends are playing on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight with their band Empires. I was fortunate enough to meet Sean VanVleet when he was a super weird kid with a giant heart. He was instrumental in me starting (and helping) with LLR Recordings. We would spent countless nights discussing music. Seemed like a waste of time to most others but I think it makes a lot of sense if you know either of us now. I also owe a lot of my musical tastes to Tom Conrad as well. Before I met him, I’d always see what band shirts he was wearing and check out the bands. Creepy right? Found out about Small Brown Bike, New Found Glory, Saves The Day and more that way. He also had enough faith in me to be the first band (504 plan) on my first label. I had to write them a heart felt letter to convince them but I’m very glad it worked and they trusted me. Tune in to watch where those guys lives are headed after practicing their entire lives. Proud to say I know them and to be a fan.
Alkaline Trio will be playing all eight of their albums over four nights in three cities this coming fall. Check out the dates below after the jump!
One of my favorite bands, Every Time I Die, are streaming their new records via Youtube. Diving into this now and I suggest you do the same!
