Jeff Rosenstock

TICKET GIVEAWAY: Jeff Rosenstock w/ Dan Andriano In the Emergency Room, Pet Symmetry, Spraynard | Coming to BackBooth Orlando | Sunday, August 23, 2015

by • August 16, 2015

You want to talk about one of the most influential men in punk today that no one really knows, start with Jeff Rosenstock. Wow. I love this guy. Jeff started, sang in, and lead some of the biggest names in DIY punk/ska in the late ’90s/early 2000s, such as The Arrogant Sons of Bitches (and its offshoot, Bomb The Music Industry!), to his newest band, Antarctigo Vespucci, which eventually led him to playing solo shows with his friends (Like Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio), like he will at Backbooth in Orlando on Sunday, August 23, 2015 (WIN TICKETS BELOW).  I have had the pleasure of seeing Jeff Rosenstock 3 times, and each time he has brought something new and excellent to the table.

I was first introduced to Jeff Rosenstock while on a mission to find new and interesting ska music to listen to, back around 2010. My buddy Dustin told me to look up The Arrogant Sons of Bitches, and I was hooked.  After finding out they had disbanded in 2007, I was pretty dismayed, until I discovered that the lead singer had decided to start another band, a la Catch 22 and Streetlight Manifesto, Bomb The Music Industry!.

BtMI! had me even more excited, because they were still together! I was able to go see them on their farewell tour back in 2013, and it was one of the craziest shows I had ever, and still have ever, been to.  They basically tore down Uncle Lou’s Concert Hall in Orlando. It was amazing. After that, I kind of lost track of Jeff, until last year, when I was able to see him twice with his new group, Antarctigo Vespucci.

The first time was at Fest last year, which I skipped out on the Descendants to see, and was not disappointed. For as exhausted and cold I had been, this show just hit me right in the core, and reignited my appreciation for music. Against my better judgment, I actually went to go see AV again a few days later when they made their post-Fest stop at BackBooth. I ran into a bunch of my friends from Fest who looked just as tired and sick as I felt. We got together and had one last Fest show, it was a glorious time.

It takes a special person that knows how to transcend genres, and bring people together like Jeff does. If Jeff’s upcoming show at Backbooth is anywhere near that level of amazing, you know it’s a show that should not be skipped.

Dan Andriano from the beloved Alkaline Trio is providing main tour support. We caught Alkaline Trio perform 4 nights in a row at The Social earlier this year and we are so thrilled to see Dan perform some of his solo material. Dan put our a new album, Party Adjacent, on July 17, 2015. Check out the first single, “Wait,” below and come hang out with me, and see something spectacular.
